      You try "improving" for half an hour re: Macbeth in a roomful of scholars with half an hour of Q&A (a.k.a. grilling) to follow & see how you like it...

  2. Ahem...I don't mean to nag, but I'm still waiting to read your report on your latest meeting with Jasper Fforde! *hugs* Hope you're well. :)

  3. How are you and your mumps....sorry to hear you have been poorly and thanks for you comments.

  4. Awww, I'm sad about the pieru :( I think my friend must've remembered wrong. Maybe you could start circulating the word pieru as an alternative for bestia? :D

  5. No worries. You don't want to rush your way through Little, Big, anyway. It should be read slowly, and savored. :)

  6. Why hello :) had a bit of an evil-flu-ridden Xmas but apart from that (and being stuck at Heathrow for days), I did have a lovely Xmas :) hope you did to xx

  7. ... someone's pulling your leg I'm afraid, 'beast' is 'bestia' and 'pieru' isn't even a word in Italian XD good to be back, by the way!

  8. Double the priority to get Little, Big read sooner then :) and don't worry, there shall be a review. I can't promise how long it will take me to read it 'cos I'm swimming in high deadline water, but I'll do my best. A bit late for wishing you a good day too, so please have a lovely night's sleep.

  9. Hi, Bookjumper. I just wanted to say I look forward to your thoughts on Little, Big. I love that book. It is beautiful and sad. "The further in you go, the bigger it gets." If you don't post a review, please at least let me know what you think after you have read it. Please have a good day. :)

  10. Hello BookJumper, haven't seen you around on here in ages, but it seems like you're back now, that's good to hear! :) I heard today that 'beast' is 'pieru' in Italian, is that true? If so, it would be kind of funny because 'pieru' in Finnish means a fart :) Tehehe.

  11. Thank you :) it's good to be back. Drowning in essays rather but all other impediments to my love affair with the board have been kicked in the bum, so here I be!

  12. IS. OFFICIALLY. BACK. :)!!!

      I missed you cheri. I hope all things are sunshine, or at least rainbows now.

  13. Good news (that it's only PC problems that is), thanks Chrissy. Hurry back Giulia - hope you had a lovely Christmas x

  14. I remember some of your posts in the Mature Discussion area and your gorgeous writing. I haven't seen you around. It seems others are worried. I hope you are okay. :)
