  1. I meant books you initially liked but, putting some thought into it, concluded weren't that great. For me, that would be The Hannibal Lecter series. Read them when I enjoyed horror, saw the film with Anthony Hopkins and years later wish I hadn't read such graphic horror.
  2. His Royal Highness, Prince Philip
  3. You can click on the three dots at the top right hand side of your post and you'll find the edit button, then you can make the change yourself.
  4. 1. Your favourite book. Invariably the one I'm currently reading 2. Saddest book you ever read. Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck 3. Book you read a paragraph or two from every now and then. From a poetry book which changes from time to time 4. Best opening line you ever read. No idea, sorry 5. Most overrated book. The Great Gatsby. 6. Book you read because of a review you saw here. The Book of Ebenezer Le Page,
  5. I didn't want to derail the Poetry Thread so I decided to post here. Wee, sleekit, cowran, tim'rous beastie, O, what a panic's in thy breastie! Thou need na start awa sae hasty, Wi' bickering brattle! I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee, Wi' murd'ring pattle! I'm truly sorry Man's dominion Has broken Nature's social union, An' justifies that ill opinion, Which makes thee startle, At me, thy poor, earth-born companion, An' fellow-mortal! I doubt na, whyles, but thou may thieve; What then? poor beastie, thou maun live! A daimen-icker i
  6. I remember something about Palimpsest. Former member on BGO, Nellie, was also a member Palimpsest and she kept robot dogs.
  7. When we two parted In silence and tears, Half broken-hearted To sever for years, Pale grew thy cheek and cold, Colder thy kiss; Truly that hour foretold Sorrow to this. The dew of the morning Sank chill on my brow – It felt like the warning Of what I feel now. Thy vows are all broken, And light is thy fame; I hear thy name spoken, And share in its shame. They name thee before me, A knell in mine ear; A shudder come o’er me – Why wert thou so dear? They know not I knew thee, Who knew thee too well – Long, long shall I rue thee, T
  8. I don't remember how I came to BGO but it was in 2009. I had frequented a board called Big Readers and gotten into a fight (me? fight?) with all of the moderators at once - Apple sometimes of this board stuck up for me there - and I decided to leave. They had made it plain that all they wanted was to be agreed with. I said that if they succeeded the board would die, they did and so did the board. I couldn't believe how friendly and fair everyone was/is here and here I stayed. The loss of David was a big blow and an irrevocable change to the atmosphere of the board was inevitable
  9. Presumed Dead: Carter Blake Book 5, Mason Cross
  10. O CHANTRY of the Cherubim, Down-looking on the stream! Beneath thy boughs the day grows dim; Through windows comes the gleam; A thousand raptures fill the air, Beyond delight, beyond despair. I will not name one flower that clings In cluster at my feet! I will not hail one bird that sings Its anthem loud or sweet! This is the floor of Heaven, and these The angels that God’s ear do please. I walk as one unclothed of flesh, I wash my spirit clean; I see old miracles afresh, And wonders yet unseen. I will not leave Thee till Thou give Some
  11. The winter comes; I walk alone, I want no bird to sing; To those who keep their hearts their own The winter is the spring. No flowers to please--no bees to hum-- The coming spring's already come. I never want the Christmas rose To come before its time; The seasons, each as God bestows, Are simple and sublime. I love to see the snowstorm hing; 'Tis but the winter garb of spring. I never want the grass to bloom: The snowsto
  12. Do we actually have a definitive end date?
  13. I've got my copy of the whole thing and will read it eventually.
  14. I've just finished reading this and thorougly enjoyed it. I made a conscious decision not to rush through it so that I could savour it. What an accomplished novel for a 23 year old! The prose was amazing and the characters, I felt, were well drawn and how unusual to use a deaf/mute as a central figure. Life in the deep south during, I got the impression, the depression. Fantastic!
