    Nicholas Sparks: The Notebook

    I've also read the book after I saw the film. I loved both. It's a wonderful. I especially like the idea of old Noah and his notebook, as he is reading it to his wife over and over again.

    The X-Files II

    I've watched it 2 day ago and I liked it though I just saw the last episodes of the The X Files series. I think anyone can watch the film, no matter if he knows the series. But it was a nice reunion with Mulder and Scully :)

    Hope so. If books are very cheap I tend to buy every book that looks a bit nice. When I'm at home I see that most books are bad bargain ;) Currently I'm reading a book by Barbara Bradford, one I bought for €2.50, seems nice but nothing special.

    Ah okay, no they were just called flawed, but actually they didn't have any defects. They just had a stamp saying "Mängelexemplar" (what I found means flawed). I think they're just books that can't be sold because no one is interested in them.

    Sorry, I found that in the online dictionnary. I wanted to say that the book has not the best quality and so they sell it for less than the purchasing price.
