I'm writing because I noticed you have a book by Andrew Dornenburg in your library. I wanted to let you know that he'll be on LibraryThing for a few weeks (until December 5th), participating in an Author Chat. So stop on by and ask Andrew a question:

Andrew Dornenburg Author Chat

Thanks for the Elizabeth David recommendation. To answer your question, I studied at the University College of London for a semester during the time I was in law school. It was an exchange program of sorts, and I studied international law. I enjoyed London very much (including the food, despite the less-than-stellar reputation of UK food).

Hi Jon,

Fortunately for me, I have dear friends in the UK (I studied in London for a bit) that keep me well-stocked with the lastest published in the UK, particularly food writing, one of my passions. Of course, I reciprocate with the latest from the US.

Rather inauspicious number of books in your library at the moment, no?

For some things on LT, majority rules, and the majority of users have "A History of Histories" listed as by the author "John Burrow". However, the correct author is "John W. Burrow", John Burrow on LibraryThing is someone else. Would you mind changing the author of the book to John W. Burrow? Click on the "Your library" tab (upper left corner of screen), find "A Histories of Histories", double-click on the author field, and change to "John W. Burrow". Thanks!
I'm a bit shocked by your comment that the Mabinogion is "full of people with silly Welsh names". Some might say that "Tseng" is a silly name!
