About meI used to be "bookoholic13"

Native Swede, living in the US since 1994.
I'm very friendly - just say "hi" (eller "hej" om du är svensk!) if you want to ask something about my library, or just chat.

Link to wishlist (private).

About my libraryI'm trying to log all the books I own, since I have books on both sides of the Atlantic and have in the past found myself buying several copies of the same book because I forgot I already owned it...

The Stand is $5.17 on Kindle right now if you have one.
Eva,

I've started the thread for the August-October group read of [The Stand] by Stephen King. Would you link the thread to the list of group reads please? Thank you.

Roberta

https://www.librarything.com/topic/178358
Hi Eva, I have set up the thread for the Raj Quartet, Part 2, The Day of the Scorpion. Could you please link the thread to the list of group reads. Thanks so much.

Judy
Hi, Eva,

Could you please link the thread for the Canerbury Tales to the Group page.

http://www.librarything.com/topic/172202#

Thank you!
Thanks Eva, for getting back to me. I just didn't want 2 different G.R. threads going. I hope you reconsider reading an Atwood. At least one...

Mark
Hi Eva- My name is Mark and I am on the 75 Challenge. Were you going to start an Atwood April thread? I did last year and it was a lot of fun, but there is not a point for us to both to have one. Let me know. Have a great weekend.

Mark
Hi Eva, here's my usually unnecessary reminder that you're up for the MysteryCAT next month. Unlike children's mysteries, I have stacks and stacks of "Nordic Noir" for April!
Thanks!
Hi Eva, the thread for the Zane Grey November is up and I have linked it with the Groups Read Wiki, could you please add the link to the Group Home Page. Thanks.
Judy
That sounds like a fun summer read, and it will nicely balance out some of the heavier reading I have planned for August! Thanks!
Hi! I'm dropping in to see if you would be willing to pick a book for me to read in August for my Draft Day category in my 2013 Category Challenge. Anything in my "To Read" collection is fair game. The TBRs I'm already planning to read in August are:

Interred With Their Bones by Jennifer Lee Carrell
The Small House at Allingham by Anthony Trollope
Baking Cakes in Kigali by Gaile Parkin
Hamlet (audio)
and possibly The Colony of Unrequited Dreams by Wayne Johnston
I'm making the rounds of those that expressed interest in John's (johnsimpson) cricket tutoring. I created a group for the cricket and a Welcome thread. I will post a link to John's thread for tutoring on the Welcome thread a soon as he creates it. I hope you join us.

Roberta

Thanks, Eva, That is great!
Cathy
Eva,
Could you please show me the code you used to get the link to your review "Review over here".
Thanks
Eva,

Sorry to create extra work for you, but group reading In the Shadow of wounded Knee have decided to change from July to November. I have adjusted the wiki, but the group page is under your control.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

Cheli
Såg just resultatet av recensionstävlingen. Grattis!
Hi, Eva,

We've set A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court as a group read in March.
Would you please update the 2013 group when you get a chance?

Thanks,

Cheli
Mycket hedrad, tack tack! :)
Hi Eva - I'd love to mooch Klezmer.
Thanks
Kerry
Tackar, nu har jag kastat om några av de angränsande numren enligt detta.
Hej! Jag ser att du lagt till serieinfo för flera av Thea Oljelunds Pirkko-böcker och undrar över om dessa verkligen stämmer, för de kommer inte i samma ordning som numreringen som B. Wahlströms ungdomsböcker/flickböcker. Det första exemplet är #1918 "P. och stallets hemlighet" och #1942 "P. och den lilla cirkushästen" som jag tror är nummer 3 respektive 4, men som du skrivit in som nummer 4 respektive 3.

Kan jag ändra dessa och liknande fall till att stämma med B. Wahlströms ungdomsböcker-ordningen, eller finns det något särskilt skäl här?
Hej Eva!
Du har många intressanta titlar i ditt bibliotek, så jag kommer att titta in på din sida då och då för boktips.
Vänliga hälsningar från Anna- Marie!
Hi there,

I noticed that you have reviewed 'The Night Circus' by Erin Morgenstern, and was wondering if you had any questions about the book for the author? I work for a book supply company in the United Kingdom, and we often do an author interview, asking questions about the book, inspiration etc. If you would like to submit a question, I will try and include it, or merge it with others that may be similar.

Thanks, Fiona.
Thanks for adding me to your "interesting libraries" Eva. I tried to friend you when I added you too, but saw you'd disabled that feature. I've always wondered about that *friending* thing anyway. I mean, what does it MEAN? Is it like when we were kids and we'd say: "will you be my friend" and if the answer was "yes" then we'd immediately start sharing all our secrets?! I got on facebook long ago—I don't spend any time there at all these days, save for my blog posts that get published there automatically—but the friending thing (especially with complete strangers) has always seemed very suspect to me.

Still, I consider you an LT friend whether you like it or not, as I love having your visits on my thread!

xx Ilana
Thanks for letting me know about the review--I'll go check it out!

Karen
Hej!

Congrats on winning the Swedish bookpile contest!!

Madeline
Jag skulle inte våga hoppas, personligen, men jag misstänker att det väldigt mycket beror på hur albumen har sålt i Sverige och Finland.
Hmm, läser på Wikipedia att den faktiskt fortsatte att publiceras i LEN fram till 1975, men då var det Lasse Jansson som både tecknade och skrev. Men de stripparna tänker inte Drawn & Quarterly ge ut. :(
London Evening News, menar jag.
Nej, serien var faktiskt på engelska från början. Dvs, jag antar att den var på svenska när den skissades fram i Toves (senare Toves och Lasses) huvud, men den originalpublicerades i England, i London Evening Standard. Men de sista av de stripparna är i detta album.
Man får väl hoppas att den svenska upplagan är korrigerad, men det beror väl på hur långa ledtider de har i produktionen. Själva går vi och funderar på hur länge vi ska köpa de kanadensiska utgåvorna. Även om serien än så länge (så långt den här utgåvan har hunnit alltså) originalpublicerades på engelska, så är det svårt att bestämma sig för vad som är "originalversionen", de svenska eller de kanadensiska böckerna.
Eva, jag läste just din recension av femte volymen av de samlade muninserierna, och jag vill säga att när vi köpte vårt exemplar följde det med två lösa strippar i form av klisterlappar att klistra över de duplicerade stripparna med. Kanske inte den mest lyckade lösningen, men betydligt bättre än inget alls. Skriver du till förlaget skickar de säkert klisterlapparna till dig.

-j
Well thanks for your helpful reply.

Paul.
Thank you so much Eve for writing me back. Sadly enough I am a flemish speaking Belgian living in UK, and I can't understand one word of swedish. I was hoping that you were going to know if it was available in English and what the correct title is or was. So your thinking is that it has only been published in Swedish???? Darn, I would have loved to read it, but I was even more interested in the photograhps. It seems that she took photographs of the people on the Blasket Islands in the early 20th century, and it is really those photographs that I am after... I googled her on every possible link I could think of, but did not find an english title under her name. My luck might have run out! ;o)))
Anyway, I truly appreciate it that you answered me so soon!

Catherine
Hello, Catherine Here from UK. You seem to have a book by Harriet Hjorth about the Coast of Ireland. Would you be able to give me more details about it and the correct title and where I could find it?
Thanks in advance

Catherine
Thanks a lot Eva!

The thread itself led me to SwedishBookReview.com, which seems to be a very helpful and interesting site.

Thanks again :)

Anna
Well, it doesn't matter.
For now I prefer in English but as I'm going to keep learning Swedish I think I'll be able to read in original too (soon I hope).
Hej Eva
Jag är mycket intresserad av svensk litteratur så kan du hjäla mig och rekommendera några svenska författare?

thanks in advance
Anna

ps: sorry if I made too many mistakes, I started learning swedish 3 months ago and it's still a bit difficult for me to speak/write in Swedish (but I love it!).
Eva,

I've reserved it for you. Happy reading!

Liz (ecp on BookMooch)
Hi Eva,

Thanks for letting Mark know that DOG BOY was reserved for him on BM!

Irene (aka saratoga99)
Hi!

re: The Pocket Dictionary of Signing, I would love to have that if you wouldn't mind giving it up. My partner's about to start taking ASL classes, and I think it will be very useful to have something like that. :) Thank you!

Kat
Love your Bambah profile pic!! :)

M.
Hej Eva,

I just got a book on your wishlist (so you don't have it yet! :p

I have to read it first, but then you can mooch it from me when I'm done. Just let me know if you want it. I'll probably read it next. It's the ARC of From the Four Winds by Haim Sabato. I was so excited to find it in my FOTL used bookstore!

Madeline

Thought you'd get a kick out of this article:
http://ht.ly/20ucu

M.
Ok! I am sure someone will take it off of my hands. Im glad you found a copy for yourself!

Jenn
About Laundry, I thought that's what you meant. There is a third review (other than our two!) on LT where the reviewer also says that the character of Yutzi has the perfect behavior patterns for her psychiatrist diagnosis (whatever it was). It was a good review - other than it gave away the *entire* story!! :( I thought the fun of the book was in not knowing what was going on and who were involved. It was really fun to discover the pieces of this puzzle one by one. It was such an enjoyable read.

I'm sending my copy now to Caroline (cameling here on LT). She said she'd keep it moving as well.

Madeline
Eva,
Your angel mooch is listed and reserved for you: http://bookmooch.com/m/detail/BM1274854065151830642
I sent you a notification through BM, but I am not sure you got it, so adding a note here.
~ Lyn
Eva!!

Yesterday I was so excited to find an obscure Israeli book in Baltimore at The Book Thing (a used book warehouse that gives away free, gently used books). I was also happy to note that there were only 4 others on LT who had it beside me. Then I looked up those people, and *you* were one of them! is there *any* Israeli book that I can find that you don't already have? :D

Madeline

P.S. The book was Laundry by Suzane Adam.
It's yours... :)
~ L.
Hej Eva,

The book Sweet Dates in Basra just arrived. It really looks like something I'll like. Thanks so much!

By the way, last night I went to see the Israeli film "Giraffes". If you ever get a chance, do see it. It's very puzzling but fascinating.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0295281/

Madeline
Excellent! Glad you got it OK and I hope you enjoy!
I'm optimistic about Matt Smith, even though it's always an odd experience to have to adapt to a new Doctor. I'm really looking forward to this season.
Oh, excellent! I heartily approve of your taste in television. :)
P.S.: I just noticed your profile picture. Looks like it couldn't have gone to a more appropriate person!
Hi! Congrats on winning the copy of Every Patient Tells a Story in the Member Giveaway. Just wanted to let you know that I should have it out in the mail to you in the next couple of days.
Eva- I reserved it for you! I'll try to mail it out in the next couple of days! Enjoy and take care!

Mark
ME too, I panicked when I saw them... I just hope I managed to save my books from any further damage.
Ty, ty you are very correct about what they were...
Ja, det räcker utmärkt för mig också! Håriga söta djur är jag alltid ett fan av. :D
Hej Eva,

That CoverGuess (like everything else on LT) is too addicting! It's fun, though. I'm trying not to skip any covers, even if I only put colors or color of text on it.

Please come and join the 75 Books in 2010 Challenge so you can do the TIOLI challenge that I've created for my group. You might find it fun. Here's the information:

http://www.librarything.com/topic/85721#1818303

This challenge is not a group because the "75-ers" wanted to keep it within our own group - so no one else knows about it. That's good, though, because it will keep it from becoming way too large to manage. This is the third month I've managed it, and it's really fun!

I know about the TV series but don't watch it because I'm hard of hearing and my husband gets annoyed when I turn on closed captioning. I have more fun online anyway.

All is good with me. This month I'm taking my home health care medical coding exam to become credentialed. I've already failed it twice, the last time by only one point! I'm gearing up for our next CSA season as I'm the newsletter editor for my CSA group. I'm thinking about Passover as I'll be hosting a large seder here at my house. I'm also thinking about what to plant in my vegetable garden for the next season.

So...I'm keeping busy.

Hope to see you on our TIOLI challenge. :D

Madeline
Hi Eva!

I see you've been playing CoverGuess, and I finally caught up to you. Phew!! :)

Hope all is well,

Madeline
Sist jag var där var det fortfarande skjulet som gällde, men det var 1997 tror jag och de kan ju ha lyckats uppföra något mer imponerande sedan dess. Men vad beträffar vädret tror jag att jag föredrar dina nuvarande hemtrakter! -j
Mitt första besök i Cork var våren 1986, det var kallt, det spöregnade och jag hade en dunderförkylning som utvecklade sig till luftrörskatarr, så efter det var jag avogt inställd till Cork i flera år. Men på 90-talet jobbade jag på Apple, vars Europahuvudkontor låg i Cork, några år och efter ett par trevliga resor dit så hade jag omvärderat stan.
Hej!

Jag tittar igenom lågoddsarna vi har gemensamt och det luktar littvet och engelska... Var? En massa böcker om Irland med betonen på konflikten i norr, men inget på iriska. Inte keltiska språk i Uppsala, alltså...

The Man who Smiled is now posted and reserved for you!
Let me know about the Pyramid, I'd love to have it.

- glenda
I found you forgot to put the 13, so I am now posting the book and reserving it for you.
yes "the Man who smiled is still available. Shall I post it and reserve it for you?
Are you the bookoholic in Portugual? and I have not read "The Pyramid" so that would be great.

-glenda
Nä, capybar är inte samma sak som wombat. Men jag kan tänka mig att de är gnagare?
Hi Eva,

I have another book posted on BookMooch (just posted it today) that you might want. Let me know either way because you seem to be the only person with this book on your wishlist! :)

http://bookmooch.com/m/inventory/squeakychu

Best,

Madeline

Grabbing your hand and doing the happy dance called the hora! :)

Enjoy your ER book!

Madeline
Yay!! N'siya tovah! (A good trip)

Madeline
Oh, yeah, please do a travel blog! That would be perfect.

M.
If you have computer access while you're there, I'd love to vicariously follow your trip. It sounds super!!

M.
Have you been to Israel before? You'll love it. I'm so jealous!!

If you're going in December, bring a raincoat, umbrella and *warm* clothes! Sometimes it even snows in Jerusalem in the winter.

My last trip there was in 2001. I need to go back again.

M.
You *are* in for a treat. The Way to the Cats delves into people's lives in the same way that Returning Lost Loves did but the story takes place in a rehab hospital instead of an apartment complex. I'm glad you have your own copy of The Way to the Cats so we each get to keep a copy. :) I see where you put my Returning Lost Loves into your permanent collection.

I *loved* Edeet Ravel's Ten Thousand Lovers. The ending just blew me away. I have her other two books as well but have not yet read them.

Keep me posted if you have any other good Israeli novels to give away via BookMooch, and I'll do the same for you. It's not all that often I find one, though. I get very excited when I do.

Best,

Madeline
Hej Eva!

I just finished The Way to the Cats (Yehoshua Kenaz) and loved it! I know it's in your library. Have you read it yet?

Madeline
Haha, ja.. visst är det så? Totalt utomjordisk. Aardvarkar, surikater och capybarer är andra favoriter.
Hahahaha!! Ingen fara. Det är en aye-aye, en slags lemur.
Jag har en dragning åt ovanliga djur. Det är fascinerande.
Yea, I have to agree that helping others is a great thing... lol by the way Americans are responding to the national health care plan, we seem like a bunch of selfish jerks.

Well the beach is always nice! You should travel inland, it can be really beautiful. I know that West Virginia is gorgeous on (I think) Smoky Mountain. Worth a look eventually! Pennsylvania has a ton of trees, it is just gorgeous. I'm pretty sure that Maryland has this cave exhibit where you can go into the cave and they give you a guide. There is one portion where they show how the gravity is different. They place a ball on a rail at the bottom of it (rail slopes down) and the ball goes up! Beautiful caves!
Wow lol great job though! As you can tell from the fact that you had to combine many of your novels, most people don't even think to combine authors and etc... I certainly don't because I am afraid that I will screw it up! Especially since I live in America, a majority of the books are already combined either because they come from America or because they are foreign (imported)! LOL

Is it a good health care plan though? And yea, I understand tax but it seems that other countries who pay a higher tax have a better living condition and a more stable economy... (because the govt. can afford things! We complain so much, but we are all so very very young).

Haha, yea it seems that we are less diverse over in the midwest because peopel from other countries tend to go to the east or west coast where the cities are famous and warm! :D Which is fine with me because I don't like to be crowded like in New York and such.

Great! Then I'll fit right in with some Swedish and a good attitude lol.
Wow, I just looked at your helper badges... that is some amazing work! You really are very involved in this website!
Haha, thank you! I'm just trying to get as much of it done now in the summer before school starts again... :( Yea, people do love to talk to others! Was the category that you changed the one that became books of random countries? lol, I don't remember, I looked last night

Yea, I was confused as to why touchstones don't work in comments, but I suppose that it makes it less complicated for a profile page! I would love for him to keep writing the writing the series, he is a great author. :) He has actually announced that he gave the typescript of the third book to HaperCollins, and the title is Absolute Midnight! The tentative release date is 2010. The fourth book is going to be called The Dynasty of Dreamers. There isn't an official title for the fifth book, but there is speculation on the official website. It is comforting to know that although he has been writing adult novels during this hiatus, he has worked on his paintings for the series and he now has over 500!

I love that about Europe, that you can visit so many different things in the same time it takes to drive to the south from Michigan! It's amazing all the varied cultures and you can experience so much. I am truly jealous!

What's it like politically like there? Liberal? What about medical needs and freedoms? And Sweden is neutral isn't it? So they don't get involved in many wars?

Lol, I love that you guys make it easy for people to learn the language! Here, you can get away with not knowing how to speak a thing and it's really very frustrating when people refuse to adapt to someone's culture. I think if you are going to move someplace, you need to respect that culture and attempt to learn their traditions and to at least know many basic phrases etc... And really, it's so very hard to be good at a language when you can't naturally experience it with many other people.

I love eco- friendly things! I think it's a great way to preserve what we have and it can also be very beneficial to one's health and expenses. Do you guys have as much boxed and pre- made foods like we do? I think we are so lazy here and fatten ourselves up cuz we can't take the time to eat healthy. :( I live in Michigan, so I'm used to yucky weather; hot, cold, snowy, freezing, rainy, downpour... everything!

Haha, of course, that's what mothers do! I'm sure you will love being back home! And you have a lifetime to travel to the rest of the world.... China is amazing, I loved their culture and the people were so friendly and curious.
Haha, I keep leaving little comments on the side, but I loved the picture lol! and I've always wanted to get the latke... by lemony snicket cuz he is one of my favorite authors! I even got the last a series of unfortunate events book signed!

I love your 999 challenge, I have my own but it's not as interesting and sophisticated as yours!

I don't think I have anything else to add...

By the way, did you know that Clive Barker is actually intending to make the Abarat series into seven or eight books?
Haha, I think CA is a little hot, but I do have a great cousin or something there and I met her... I'm more of a mild temperature girl. I like rain, and 40- maybe 80s at the highest is my degree range (F)!

Wow, that just sounds amazing! I wish I could travel like that! Which place do you enjoy living in the most? And yea, I totally understand that, we Americans are so ignorant and selfish.

How difficult is it to learn Swedish? Are there many people willing to teach it? I've heard that Sweden is very huge on the "green" program, with thermoheating and cooling, hydrogen fuel, etc... true? What kind of jobs are most available? I want to be a chemical engineer and I'm pretty sure Sweden is a big contributing country in the science field... lol, i have bad memory!

Yea, I really want to travel and maybe live in other countries... I have actually visited China for three weeks and it just opened my world! I cannot believe that people have not experience these kinds of cultures!

Hey, I'm the girl you have been helping concerning the vet book... well I'm commenting you cuz you said you were from Sweden and I have always wanted to visit or maybe even move... so I'm really curious about your country! And you're cool, of course! :)
Want a laugh? Your book, "Scream Queens...", made the LT Home Page "Hot Reviews" list today - even if it *is* only #10 of 10. I think it was the book's title that did it. :)

Madeline

Hi Eva,

I spoke too soon. I see what you mean about “Scream Queens…”. It has gotten *very* bizarre and seems to go off on many difficult-to-read tangents, at least where I am in the book right now. I guess I’ll have to take away at least one star! :)

It is so much fun to have close friends who are Israelis. And, yes, it’s kind of hard to get into their circle, but once you’re in, you’re hooked for life. My whole mother’s family is Israeli, but I never got to know them until I lived in Israel for a year as a volunteer nurse (1972-1973). One of my dearest friends is an Israeli woman I met in the Washington, DC, area when my kids were little. She and I basically raised our kids together until she decided to return to Israel fifteen years ago. That was so sad for me, but our families still stay in touch and sometimes even visit.

I am so excited to find someone who is as interested as I am in modern Israeli literature. Jewish literature is one thing, but Israeli literature is a totally different ball game.

Where does your friend in Israel live? You *must* visit Israel. Do not delay. You’ll feel right at home there.

Best,

Madeline

P.S. Your two books have been mailed! :)
Hi Eva,

I started reading your "Scream Queens..." and think it's hilarious. I noticed from your review that you didn't care for it all that much.

I was just interested in why you like to read israeli fiction so much? Did you ever live in Israel? Do you have friends who are Israeli? Having lived in Israel myself, I find much Israeli fiction has content that is "over the head" of people who have never been involved with Israeli culture per se.

I still need to pack up your two books which are now sitting on my kitchen table... :)

I'm going to keep an eye on your BookMooch inventory. I think you have the best one of all BookMoochers!

Madeline
Dear bookoholic

Thank you for your terrific review of my debut novel WIFE OF THE GODS. I really appreciate your taking the time, and the perceptive comments you made about the book. I don't in the least take it for granted. Thank goodness for book-lovers like you! I see you are in Long Beach, and hope you'll be able to attend one of my book signings in the Los Angeles area in July. The dates and venues are available on my website

DeNiro's Game has arrived and it is in almost perfect condition. I've listed it and send you a recommendation. Mooch at your convenience!
Talk about a speedy mooching experience! My Father's Paradise was sent soon after requesting it and arrived today in excellent condition. I've listed it and sent you a "recommendation" so mooch whenever you want! I'm going to try my best to mail it within a week's time.

Just a little update: The mooch has been accepted although the sender has said it will be sent in about 2 weeks so I hope that's alright!

Hey Eva,

As I posted in the forum, I've requested My Father's Paradise for you!! (I heard it's a great book and I actually have it but have yet to read it.... so many books, so little time :) I'll let you know when it arrives!

Sheri
Sorry for causing that momentary disappointment this afternoon. I was working at a site where I have limited online access and can't log on to BookMooch so I flipped your request to my sister and she logged on and sent the mooch request but, she's not on LT and I had to log on, log off, log on again... so it took a little while to get the message back to me and for me to get back to you! Hopefully the mooch will be accepted and it will all work out in the end! whew!!!
Eva,

Your book(s) went out today; sorry for the delay. I sent you a book "smooch." I also thought you might like the second book; a little gift for being so late.

Life is not a bowl of cherries!

Eva-I would love a copy of Never Let Me go. My Bookmooch username is also msf59.

Hejsan!!

I'm here through the 999 Challenge forums, I noticed your opinion of Gilad Atzmon's Guide to the Perplexed was very similar to mine, *and* I also noticed you haven't read any books from Kyrgyzstan yet... so I'd like to recommend Chingiz Aitmatov.

I frankly don't know if you'll be able to get ahold of his works in English or Swedish, though. :( Here in Hungary most of his output has been published and many of them are even currently in print, which is how I managed to read them (well, to be precise, *most* of them - I have 1.5 to go).

Shavua tov!
I'm so glad you like the SantaThing gift! (And, hey, I opened my own Amazon box when it got here this morning, so I could hardly blame you if you *did* open it early. :))

Happy holidays!
Hi there! This is your SecretSanta-ee! I got your books today, much to my surprise. I wasn't expecting them today at all (last year, my books came well after Christmas)--so I was completely mystified at this box from Amazon waiting at my front door when I got home. Otherwise, I would have put it under the tree and waited till Christmas to actually open it. But anyway, I am very happy with the books you picked for me--I have been wanting to read both of them. It was quite brilliant of you to "cheat" and peek at my BookMooch wish list. Thank you! I'm looking forward to reading them. Merry Christmas. :-)
Hej!

Aldrig fucka upp är skriven på samma vis som Snabba cash, personkildringar, språk och miljöer är liknande. Den känns lite rörigare och snabbt skriven, inte lika trovärdig. Trots det är det spännande och gripande, jag läser hellre den än nångon annan deckarförfattare. Den är dock värd att läsas- så beställ den! /Cecilia
we are all different, I dont like it when its to hot,
over here for the moment we have 25 ° celcius and that's ok for me, I dont like it when we have 30° celcius or more,
I would like to go to Sweden once but have to convince my husband since he is afraid of having cold, but I think in summer the weather in the south of Sweden is much the same as here in Belgium
My sister is going on holiday to Sweden this summer
I am still translating poems of Dan Andersson, for the moment, Till min sister, Aan mijn zuster in Dutch, you see, it's very alike,
when I dont find a word, because Dan Andersson often used words that are not Swedish but Fins -Swedish, a friend of my daughter who already knows soms Swedish is helping me out .
I ordered another cd from Sofia Karlsson, Folk songs, I already have ' Visor from vinden, and ' Svarta Ballader ', do you know her?
I like her singing very much,
Hjärtliga hälsningar

trustme
hej,

maybe we talk a little different but flemish and dutch are the same language !
many words in swedish are much like our words but you speak really different, but I like it and hope I can learn it.
how long are you living in the states ?
I like to read this ' old ' books but also love modern writers , I very much like Coelho , and also Frederiksson , I just read ' Simon' and enjoyed it .
love

trustme
hej eva,

I am glad you answered my mail

I am living in Belgium and speaking Dutch, most belgiums are speaking Dutch, the others are speaking French en a small part of us is speaking german

I find Swedish a very melodic language and it is related to Dutch, so I am surprised that you learned it not a bit by living in Amsterdam, the words often are very much the same but I think the most difficult thing is the prononciation.

I like very much the poems of Dan Andersson and the music of Sofia Karlsson , also I admire Anne Sofie von Otter and Benny Andersson, his musical Kristina , a real juwel,
I am reading Vilhem Möberg ' The Emigrants ' for the second time, I like that very much

trustme
hej,

I was looking for books from Dan Andersson. I very much like the songs of Sofia Karlsson, and buyed the cd ' Svarta Ballader ' since I could not find an English translation of the Swedish Songs I started to translate them myself,
very hard to do because I dont speak Swedish but Dutch. By doing this translations I am beginning to take an intrest in Swedish en now I am planning to learn the language, starting in september.
Over here in Belgium, I cant find books of Dan Andersson, neither in Englisch or in Swedish.
trustme.
Too bad I don't know Swedish... På drift sounds good to me though.
Bork, bork, bork.
Det behövs inget ytterligare för Rutiga kokboken. Nu är vi 6 som äger den: du, jag och fyra andra.
Om du anger "Olsson, Brita" som författare till "Rutiga kokboken", så kan du kombinera ihop din utgåva (1980) med oss andra.
