  1. I am now on a mission to catch up with both "Grey's Anatomy" and "Outlander" - please don't judge me.
  2. I was a bit premature there. Maureen and Dave have sold their house and are now looking for the right retirement home. I hope they find it soon. If you are on Facebook momac is Maureen McKee. You will recognise her profile picture.
  3. I love this thread... I've just messaged momac. She had a "little stroke" and has recovered and moved to a nice retirement home. I'm hoping she will join us wherever we go.
  4. Just a reminder that this group is just getting started on GoodReads.
  5. It's really annoying, this is available as an e-book in North America but not in UK. Also available on amazon.de. And others?
  6. I think I am going to have to read the whole thing right from the start. I know... that's a big commitmment. In fact it might be my whole year.
  7. “Let there be light!” said God, and there was light! ”Let there be blood!” says man, and there’s a sea! Lord Byron - Don Juan Edit: Have emboldened "man" to provide a link to Heather's poem
  8. Have a look. You can document your library, record which books you have read, and join discussions.
  9. Well we can. As a test I created one here https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/1148702-bookgrouponline Is this an idea people want to take forward? Of course, instead of giving Facebook your data you would be sharing with Amazon (but only about books).
  10. Perhaps we could have a BGO collective on Goodreads to suplement Facebook?
  11. I don’t think this is what anybody expected. Perhaps we should have. Everything has its time. I have enjoyed being a member.
  12. This is from the forward to Becoming Them. The fiction of The Children’s War and A Change of Regime, this book’s predecessors, was less fiction than a rewriting and weaving together of various personal histories. The characters are inventions, but in general the events are not. Some of the stories dated from the Second World War from Europe, some from the present from elsewhere. They were all united by the common thread of individuals denied basic human rights and, to a greater or lesser extent, their humanity. Of those who spoke to me personally, many imparted their tales only und
  13. So confused now... Amazon has these novels available: The Children's War https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ChildrenS-War-STROYAR-2002-08-19/dp/B01N6M8VMG/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=stroyar&qid=1611001296&sr=8-3 For some reason the hardcover is £7.60 while the paperback is £47.50 - but there is no Kindle edition. Then... there is this edition https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0743407393/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vapi_taft_p1_i3 which is £7.60 hardover (again) but only £12.55 paperback. And book 2 - A Change of Regime is now £33.47 hardback and £18.40 paperb
  14. I watched the first episode a few days ago. I'm not sure if I will continue. Is it ay good?
