About meThe world's richest man? .. .. .. Probably.

Always reading or walking because I don't watch TV.

In England we are working towards a state education system where schools don’t promote religion. The home and church are the places to study religion, not school. The schools are inclusive to enable pupils from all backgrounds to work together.

Religion? Stop teaching children that your guesswork is the truth.

Love thy neighbour and live in peace. (Terms and conditions may apply.)

About my libraryA tapestry, something for every mood. I'm working my way through my bookshelves (and floor) laboriously listing my books. I am about 80% into them but would be more advanced if I would stop reading them (and re-reading them) and collecting more! (January 2019)

NOTE: Only books tagged "Your library" here are owned by me. The rest belong to others sharing the house library.

Most of my ratings are upwards of 3 stars because the majority of my reads are recommended by friends. The odd thumbsdown is usually something I chose for myself, a mistake. Life is too short to waste time reading junk, go with the recommendations; that's my experience but I generously refuse to take all the blame for it.. ..

Wishlist lists books I don't own yet. Been and Gone lists books I don't own any longer.

========================================

Terry Pratchett comes up biggest in my author cloud. Why? Hmm, well, here is what his Granny says about opera:

====

"There's your heavy opera where basically people sing in foreign and it goes like:
Oh, oh, oh, I am dying,
oh, oh, oh, I am dying,
Oh Oh, I am dying,
that's what I am doing
...dying.

Then there is your light opera where they sing in foreign and that goes like:
Beer, beer, beer, beer,
I like to drink lots of beer, beer beer,
Oh how I love beer,
lots of beer.
(Although sometimes they drink champagne instead.)

That's basically all of opera really."


====

Isn't that powerful writing?? I think he penned the following very well too:

"Britain has been shaped for the better by many
pre-Christian, non-Christian, and post-Christian forces. We are a
plural society with citizens with a range of perspectives, and we
are a largely non-religious society."


Terry Pratchett 2014
