South Bank Show interview with PP was repeated last night. What a man!

Has made me hurl Middlemarch to one side in favour of Dark Materials re-reading marathon

Oh those books are so SAD, though, Spacedonkey. I found myself sobbing over the fate of little Tony and his daemon so much I had to stop my most recent re-read.
Middlemarch = hardly a pamphlet, though!

middlemarch = tome only worthy of proppping open door, imo

pmsl @ "hardly a pamphlet"

you're on top form today marina!

I think I may have to have a crush on him, he's so awesomely articulate

I was thinking of standing on my copy to hang decorations up. Boosted by dh's copy of Ezra Pound's Cantos and the unwanted deluge of Wendy holdens from well-meaning friend.

dp was quite puzzled by the look of utter enchantment on my face throughout

spacedonkey Tue 21-Dec-04 14:05:30

I think your FIL's guides to children's books are just the tops bundle, I check both volumes on a regular basis. at such interesting and cultured rellies.

aw shucks, thanks you guys! fil would love to be anyone's surrogate dad..he's lovely. marina, they're all dedicated to the grandchildren, so dd1 gets a mention in one of the first two, and dd2 in the teens one
