  1. Thanks, Momo. I hope your group enjoys it too. (I'm sure they will, but I'm a tad biased. Does it show?)
  2. it's been a few days - sorry if things below came out as a glitch. I think Stewart was right about how it happened, and thanks, m. for the remedy. Hi leyla, I think we agree about the centrality of both Arthur's and Jake's behaviour in this part of the book, and I certainly agree with your comment (spoilered) about Jake. I was focusing more on Arthur's feelings for a moment; I didn't think that the observaton "Arthur, who has somehow managed to marry the local beauty" was adequte to the intensity of Arthur's love and his desire to save Laura's reputation, especially when Laura discovers s
  3. Flingo, that's a wonderful story - it makes me smile too. I wonder how long Izzy had been perfecting this art? Perhaps your then 80-year-old neighbour was afraid she might climb in the tub one day, only to be "boofed" by an Izzy paw!
  4. HI GERBAM: NICE TO HEAR FROM YOU AGAIN! THE ORIGINAL BOOK-SEARCHER WAS A LADY CALLED BUGGSTER, I THINK, BACK AROUND OCT. 1st. I'M NOT SURE WHAT CAME OF THE SEARCH. BUT YOUR SOURCES ARE ALWAYS INTERESTING. DO YOU HAVE BOOKS OF YOUR OWN FROM THAT EARLY NEW ENGLAND PERIOD? THEY'RE A BIT FRIGHTENING IN THE WAY THEY INSIST ON A PURITAN THEOLOGY BEING THE FOUNDATION OF ANY "VIRTUOUS" TEACHING THEORY, DON'T YOU THINK? ECHOES OF ARTHUR MILLER'S THE CRUCIBLE HOPE YOU'RE WELL ... AEMY PS. I SEE SOME OF YOUR POST IS IN LOWER CASE! HOW ARE YOUR EYES THESE DAYS? (PM ME IF
  5. This Happy Birthday is for Radders ... a day early. More to enjoy. Have a really good one, Radders.
  6. Thank you, David! And to you the delightful task of choosing again ...
  7. GOOD SUGGESTIONS, GERBAM. As you say, someone - (academic and/or in the antiquarian book business) - who specializes in children's "primers" before and a few decades after 1800 ... especially one with the Cotton Mather addition - would be very interesting to talk to. One of these would have the best idea of evaluating the book - financially - as well, I think.
  8. All these characters appear in a novel by a very well known contemporary male writer who has written 12 novels (and some other work for television and film.) The title refers to the protagonist's "day off" ... although he doesn't get a break this particular week. (C'mon folks, ... poetry in this novel links the "villain" and at least two of the other main characters at a key moment.)
  9. More clues... The main antagonist to the SBCC is committed to avoiding "mental death." Usually he does. And Music and/or poetry are important to almost all the main characters.
