No MissLisa....I am only on chapter 13 called Bang!.....I had to put it down for a while..It is definitely educational. I needed an easy read for a while and that is why I started reading "This is a Book"......a laugh out loud kind of book.

I read all 4 books to see if they were okay for my daughter to read (she was 11 when her friends were all reading them.) And there's no way I'd have let her read them at that age, maybe only after she turns 14. I don't understand how the story of a girl falling in love with someone who will potentially kill her is appropriate reading for young girls :? . I had to relent and let her see the movies recently (again, all her friends had seen them.) I wasn't happy about it but I do think the books are more graphic. (I remember having nightmares after reading some Nightmare on Elm Street books when I was 15, but didn't have any nightmares after seeing the movies when I was 13.) I don't think my mum knew I'd seen those movies at a friend's house at 13! I think I am more aware of what my daughter watches and there's no way I'd let her watch any Nightmare on Elm Street movies or read the books either!

@CosmicLea, I think you're right! But... the Nightmare on Elm Street books sound good... I wonder if I could find them in my school library... it's been so long I haven't read this kind of book... :D

Well.... I grew up hearing willie used as a term for the male appendage :lol: ........and yer Wandering Willie sounds as if it is a story of a young man sowing his oats.........or a man not being faithful to his wife! Do ya ken? But then again I am only half Scottish :oops:

Right now I am reading The Smugglers to my boys......surprisingly it is quite good for an elementary school age novel!

I read food magazines and cookbooks most of the time...love reading about food :mrgreen:

there is a book next to my computer about a career change. see what kinda work person you are and what kinda jobs would fit you. I am done with my job, not because of the job, but of what it cost me every month to get there. I have to pay over € 300 on gasoline and now I have to buy another car on top of that. So maybe it is time for something new!

But there is food magazine laying on top of it!

:lol: You see..Portuguese couldn't be more different from Spanish. It doesn't mean we can't understand each other, because we can. We can even communicate decently without learning the actual language and that is valid also with French and Italian..but the thing with portuguese versus spanish is that portuguese sounds different. Can't really explain but the language itself is way more difficult..and the written part is nuts even for us, portuguese. Nothing like english with its easy verb tenses.. :mrgreen:

Errr... I'm not sure I'd be able to communicate with a Portuguese or an Italian decently without learning those languages... in fact I'm pretty sure that just wouldn't be possible (for me anyway...) :D
