I realized after I left that last message that the character you posted there was a French one. Other people must have this issue (unless your particular keyboard is defective in that it won't let you select between the characters) You should start a thread on the subject and see if anyone has a suggestion.

I've neglected my Cather reading over the years. I know she is highly regarded, and I believe I read My Antonia in high school, but I need to catch up with her. I also recently acquired Death Comes for the Archbishop. Thanks for the recommendation!
Sounds to me like you got a non-standard keyboard. Do any of the other characters behave oddly?
I appreciated your review of A Few Green Leaves and am glad to find I'm not the only one who found it boring! Thanks for posting your thoughts :-)
I have not. Should I?

I noticed you rated Margot Peters's Unquiet Soul with one star, whereas i thought it nearly a perfect biography. But I see you rate five of the six books shown above with one star. Do you rate any book with five stars? Just curious.
And here I am too!
My friend Cate mentioned me, and so I felt I had to pay you a visit.
I will go through your library with pleasure, as soon as I have a bit of time. I am so pleased you joined the Virago group. When I started it (I don't even remember when) I would have never imagined it would become so popular!
Just like you (I know because I happened to read your comment in Cate's page), I joined LT because I wanted to catalogue my Viragos. Since then, I have come to love this site, and the people in it. It is a wonderful community, as you will very soon come to realize.
I like "lapassionata", and I am sure it fully becomes you!
Happy reading and best of luck in finding many Viragos you don't already have.

Paola :-))
Hello! I saw your post on the Virago thread and it was just like your name...passionate!
I have many Viragos but so many are still unread. You've sparked my interest, once again,
in Marcella!

We share similar interests in women's writing and I see we share 75 books. Aluvalibri is
has a fabulous library as well also specializing in women's literature.

Looking forward to seeing around the Virago group more often!

Kind regards,
Cate
