Thank you! I see you are a prolific reviewer yourself... I like your review of Rachel Ray very much, I've been intending to seek that one out and try it some time.
Thanks for stopping by my 50 Books in 2011 thread. By the way, I completely agree with your review of Stephen Fry's America. I hoped for a wittier idiosyncratic take on different regions, but it felt as though much of the book was liftd from the tourism pamplets at highway rest areas. Ah well, he was great as Oscar Wilde.
Thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked it :)
I was just perusing your reviews and your comment on "The Trial" almost made macaroni and cheese come out my nose.
Thank you.
To undertake reading Trollope would be a worthy project, but I have not done it. How many of his volumes have you read?
You probably know this - but the electronic version of the Pocket Oxford Dictionary is very useful too. You can get a grammatical analysis of any word.
