    Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith

    I’m really enjoying this series about private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin. Like most good detective series the relationship between Strike and Robin is as intriguing as their cases. I’m currently on the latest book of the series. For anyone interested, here’s the order...

    Good Omens

    Has anyone else both read the book and watched the adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s “Good Omens” on AmazonPrime? It’s a six part series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant. Neil Gaiman was both showrunner and writer so the show has remained very faithful to the book. I...

    Friends????

    Admittedly, I haven't been around much lately, but when I signed in today, I got a notification about "friends" I dutifully clicked the link and have now accepted two friends. What does this mean, exactly? I searched the FAQs and I know what they are ( even how to break a friendship...

    Italo Calvino: If On A Winter's Night A Traveler

    There's another thread on Calvino HERE that mentions If on a winter's night . . . , but it was more about the author in general, so thought I'd start a separate thread. I loved this book **gush, gush**. No, really. I read previous comments in the other thread about it being gimmicky, so was...

    Thomas Pynchon: The Crying Of Lot 49

    Where to begin? I came to reading Crying of Lot 49 via this Thomas Pynchon thread. I didn't know what to expect so looked up reviews, analyses and articles on Pynchon and CoL49. Well, it seems this little book has been analyzed ad nauseam by every student and teacher of post-modern literature...

    Regrets

    Damn. So stupid. What was I thinking? Too many excuses. Too much procrastination, thinking there'd always be time. Now it's too late. I always thought there'd be lots of time to talk about my mother with dad. But the time never seemed right. I did try once. I had taken him out for...

    Laptop Computer advice needed

    I know there's quite a bit of expertise in TBF membership about computers, so here's the thing: A college-aged son has decided to take the plunge and get a laptop, mostly for school, but also for music, etc. He's done quite a bit of research already, but would really like to get some...
