That's cute that you adore him.
Chelle what books do you like reading?
I read almost everything ...

If I have to name a few I'd say Alice in Wonderland because at some point in life, it gave sense to a lot of things when I lost track just like Alice, an other life changer/saver was Tregian's Ground: The Life and Sometimes Secret Adventures of Francis Tregian, Gentleman and Musician; and I liked the series of books on science biographies with a red cover, don't know if they have 'm also in english, I'ver read almost all of them, they are well balanced, cool pictures, informative science, the history, some intrigues, ... they paint a broader picture, and some background from where the great ideas come. Here's one example:

Why your preference for thrillers?

Think next I am going to start A Clockwork Orange :geek:
Sounds good.

Passed by the library yesterday, and picked up that one; where I live it is full of posters of missing cats :mrgreen:

I've read last evening about 60 pages and it is quite boring, the funny thing is that they talk about Lord of the Flies, I had that one laying around for a long time; and as mentioned in the book it says if you don't like it after 20 pages just put it aside, and that's exactly what I did with that one :mrgreen:

Anyway I hope it starts to pick up cause 100 pages is my limit, if he hasn't convinced me by then ... adios.

This one?

"there's a big difference between COULD and WILL."

There is no such thing as 'could power' vs. 'Will Power' :idea:

No offence taken.

So what's the opposite of a Fearmonger, someone like the captain of the Titanic, who says that everything will be fine?
