    Doctor Who

    Are there any Doctor Who fans? Has anyone read any of the Doctor Who novels? I'd like to start reading them, but there's so many and in no apparent order that it's a little overwhelming. Can anyone recommend a good one to start off with?

    The Day the Earth Stood Still

    Has anyone seen this movie yet? I went and saw it last night and I really enjoyed it. I thought it did an excellent job of capturing the essence of great sci-fi - H.G. Wells, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, etc. It's a remake of the 1951 movie which was based on the short story, Farewell to the...

    Susan Hill: Mrs de Winter

    anyone else read this book? It's the sequel to Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, one of my favourite stories. I was thouroughly disappointed with the novel, and was just wondering what any other people might have though about it.

    Children in schools today read Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Jack London, the Bronte sisters, Mark Twain, Jonathan Swift, and many, many others who would have laughed if you told them of the fame their books would still hold, hundreds of years later. Which contemporary authors do you think...

    Your very own bookstore!

    I've been thinking about opening a bookshop recently. Not right now, but someday when I have a lot of money, and a lot more books. If you could open your very own bookstore, what would you call it, and which books would you have in it? I for one would ban romance books from my store. I...

    I was reading a post the other day, and it got me thinking how so many people, from so many different parts of the world, with so many different backgrounds, cultures and even languages can all come together and share experiences and form friendships all because we read books. I think it's...

    Help finding short story

    I read a story in a short story anthology a long time ago about a family that was made of sugar. Their nosy neighbours invited them out to a fair and when it started raining, the family dissolved. Anybody know the name or author of this story? I've been trying really hard to find it. Thanks

    Ill-Made Knight question

    I'm reading the Ill-Made Knight by T.H. White and just came across a line that confused me. Just a quick note that this could contain a spoiler, but since just about everyone is familiar with the King Arthur legend, it shouldn't be much of a surprise to anyone. At any rate, while T.H. White...
