    I'm English, I'm a retired teacher of History and English and I read widely. Most recently, I read "The Provincial Lady in London", a sequel to "Diary of a Provincial Lady" by EM Delafield. It's a comical semi-autobiographical account of the heroine's adventures in London whence she goes to promote her earlier book.

    Not sure what I'm going to read next but I have a copy of the "Cairo Trilogy" by Naguib Mahfouz sitting on my bedside table and calling to me.

    Hi Henrietta, and welcome. I am fairly new here as well as you can tell from my post count. One of the great regrets of my life is that I did not, at the proper time, have the sense to thank my English teachers for the enormous gift they had given me with regard to appreciation of literature. I have in later years successfully sought out a couple of these teachers to tender my regards but sadly the one I wanted most to thank could not be found. I am quite sure that many of your former students feel the same way about you. Teaching can indeed be a thankless job at times. It often takes life experience to realize our debts to those who have helped us. May I be so bold to thank you in their behalf?
