About my libraryI like many types of books, but I have a slight tendency to read more fiction books either historic, science-fiction or general fiction. My mother tongue is Spanish so my "classic literature" is slightly different than most people here and if you ever have questions on any book from my library you are more than welcome to leave me a comment here on my profile and I'll be happy to tell you what I thought of it.

When I got to Christmas on Pottermore, it said you were there, too. I hope you enjoyed the Bernie's Bots Jellybeans I sent you. Happy Christmas!

Ron, just wanted to again thank you for my HE Secret Santa gift!! That book has been on my wishlist for some time now, as our local library doesn't have a copy and budgets are such that collection suggestions aren't always fulfilled. It was so much fun to participate in the gift exchange and yesterday's party! I'm sorry I had to duck out so soon after I opened my gift, but so life goes. :) Although I'm sure I'll see you around HE before, I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas!!! Hugs & Cheers, grkmwk/Molly

Which characters did you think were badly cast in the movie of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? I read a lot of comments about the movie and some said they had not pictured Blomkvist like the actor who portrayed him, but I got to like him as the movie went on. I thought Lisbeth was perfect but the woman I went to the film with said she thought the actress was too pretty. One I wasn't quite sold on was Erica Berger--I thought she should have been a bit more polished--not a hair out of place. On the other hand, she didn't have much of a role in the film.

I am really eager to see the other two films but they are not supposed to be out here until fall.


Well, of course, you are always welcome! My plan is to be living in a much more interesting place in a year or two, also--depends on when my house sells. This time of year it's nice enough here, but there's still not a lot to do. I want to move to a city--maybe Portland, Oregon, or Seattle, Washington, but possibly somewhere else. Depends to some extent on finances, naturally--what doesn't?

If I win the lottery, I'll send you a plane ticket ;-)


I finished the third Larsson book and reviewed it both in my 75-book challenge thread and my library (so it appears on the book's page). In some ways I think the first two books were a bit better, partly because of the situation Salander ends up in for most of this book--she's stuck in that hospital bed and doesn't interact much with people. Still, it was good and I'm so sorry Larsson won't be writing any more books.

Doing a re-read of Asimov's Foundation trilogy now for something quite different.

I'm really sorry that you don't think you'll make the Florida meet-up. But it's still a while yet, so maybe you'll have some unexpected windfall that will make it possible? I hope so, anyway.

Thanks for the recommendations! I notice you've got some Neil Gaiman books, if you like his style, I'd recommend checking out Neverwhere. It's urban fantasy set in London - one of his first novels I read and still one of my favorites. Also, did you like Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons? I was never a big fan of Dan Brown's writing, but I do tend to like action/mystery books like that so another one I really enjoyed is The Last Cato by Matilda Asensi. It was actually written in first Spanish (El Ultimo Caton) so you could probably read the original text rather than a translation. I'm sure I can think up some better suggestions, but those are just off the top of my head!

G'day mate :) Glad you liked it! My contribution was related to the ribbon... i held my finger on it while MsD tied the bow. So i'm especially pleased that you liked that the best ;)

MsD loves getting feedback on her candles, so if you have any suggestions (more/less scent, favourite fragrance, colours, etc) be sure to drop her a message. All the best for you too in 2010, hope you have a good year.

Just popping in to say hi. Since Gentlemen and Players was one of my favorite reads of 2009, I thought I'd ask if you had anything awesome to recommend for 2010! Hope your year is off to a great start!
Cheers! el :)
