    Where were you on 9-11?

    I was at home but I didn't have either the TV or the radio on. I'd only lived in the US for about 6 months. My neighbour called me and told me what was happening so I switched on the TV. I remember just sitting down on the floor, totally stunned. It's one of those news stories that I'll...

    what books made you cry?

    I've just finished 'Marley & me: life and love with the world's worst dog' by John Grogan. This is a real tear-jerker for any dog lover.

    How Many Languages Do You Know and Use?

    I'm fluent in French, and speak a little German. I did start to learn some Italian before I left England, but I've decided that Spanish would be more useful here in the US, so I plan on taking that up soon.

    Do you listen while you read???

    I find it strange that so many people find it hard to read or study whilst listening to music. When I was at uni, one of the tutors recommended that we use music as a learning aid. For example, we had to learn a poem in French. We were listen to the poem at the same time as listening to a...

    Do you listen while you read???

    I listen to music whilst doing almost everything. I have the TV tuned to VH1 country all night long. If we have a power failure during the night and the music stops, I instantly wake up.

    Everyones favorite types of music!??!

    Each to their own I suppose! I love country music. I quite like southern rock, dislike heavy rock, and can't abide rap!

    Who else thinks Formula 1 is a scam?

    I think the only way they could level the playing field is to give each of the teams a budget. It would certainly be nice to see a Formula 1 race again, instead of just a parade.

    Dan Brown

    I finally got around to reading 'The Da Vinci Code' this month. The book had been highly recommended to me by several people. In addition, due to the controversy about it on TBF, I felt obliged to read it just to see what all the fuss (both negative and positive) was all about. I must...

    Mapping your favourite authors

    Thanks for the link. I tried it with a few of my favorite authors, and a lot of my favorites were well grouped together. There were a few I haven't tried though, so that should keep me busy for a while. It looks like a very helpful site. Thanks!

    If you could be anywhere...

    Oh, DO save a seat for me! And, while you're at it, an espresso would be great! I'm on my way!!!! I SO miss France now that I've moved to the US; it's just not quite so simple to pop over there for long weekends any more :(

    Books you'd never let your kids read....

    I certainly wouldn't be happy to find a child of mine reading 'A child called it'. My son is 25 now, and I still wouldn't be happy to find him reading it!
