  1. My goodreads target is 60 books. I've read 37 so far, 62% of my plan.
  2. Always. It's a legitimate form.
  3. Simple / Indefinite Present Tense He/She/It stands . I stand. You/We/They stand. Present Continuous Tense He/She/It is standing. I am standing. You/We/They are standing. Present Perfect Tense He/She/It has stood. I have stood. You/We/They have stood. Present Perfect Continuous Tense He/She/It has been standing. I have been standing. You/We/They have been standing. Simple Past Tense He/She/It stood. I stood. You/We/They stood. Past Continuous Tense He/She/It was standing. I was standing. You/We/They were standing. Past Perfect Tense He/She/It had stood. I had stood. You/We/They had stood. Past Perfect Continuous Tense He/She/It had been standing. I had been standing. You/We/They had been standing. Simple Future Tense He/She/It will/shall stand. I will/shall stand. You/We/They will/shall stand. Future Continuous Tense He/She/It will/shall be standing. I will/shall be standing. You/We/They will/shall be standing.

I will/shall have been standing. You/We/They will/shall have been standing. So, would isn't included but I think it is past perfect. But you may think it comes under a similar rule to 'would always' shown here https://www.englishpage.com/verbpage/would.html
  4. Also, perhaps 'I would stand on the hill and wait for Julie' could refer to multiple times that you stood on the hill to wait for Julie.
  5. I think 2 is more active than 1 which might be passive. But both are equally valid in (British) English and may be regional variations.
  6. Yes, they are. In the early days of digital music this was also the case. And I have some music that is no longer accessible. I've stripped the DRM from all of my book purchases so that they will always be available to me. It's not legal, but I feel it is my right.
  7. I've converted them to epub format so I can load them onto the kobo. And I can still access them using the kindle app on my iPad.
  8. I lost my Kindle. So I replaced it with a Kobo Clara HD. I decided that I need to borrow more books from the library and you can't do that on a Kindle.
  9. A quick trip to Oxfam during my lunch break resulted in: Nutshell - Ian McEwan Pope Joan - Donna Woolfolk Cross The Rider - Tim Krabbe Merckx - William Fotherington Detective Inspector Huss - Helene Tursten The Torso - Helen Tursten
  10. Wow! Doesn't time fly... Nice one Luna. I love the fact that so many of us have stuck around for so long. I think forums are going to be the next big thing.
  11. Having insomnia (and still waiting for the autopsy results) but thanks for all of the good wishes.
  12. Young Guns (Go For It!) - Wham!
  13. I wonder if we read ebooks more quickly than physical books. When I'm reading a physical book I am (obviously) aware of how far I have read and how much I have left. With an ebook it is a concious decision to check progress. So, I may pause with a physical book, take a break, whatever. This is especially the case at the end of chapters and sections. But with an ebook I just keep going, just keep turning the virtual pages. And before I know it I've been reading without a break for a couple of hours. Girl from the Sea is 306 pages in paperback. So not that short.
  14. I have just finished this. I found myself involved with stories of the various characters and involved in them emotionally. A nice, simple, uplifting (in the end) story.
