I admit that i have done this. One reason is that I get asked this a lot (for English majors it seems like the first thing we get asked) and I am attempting to look a lot smarter than i really am. I love fantasy, 2/3 of my books are fantasy. But if i say my favorite author is Gail Carriger, Jim Butcher, Neil Gaimen or Ilona Andrews, I don't sound as high-brow if I start rambling(usually mumbling) about Faulkner or Hemingway. And since I mostly get asked this my other english majors, i tend to want to empress them. horrible of me, i know.
I didn't feel like making a big discussion about this but I need some help. I have a book report presentation due in about 2 weeks and we need to have 10 major places or events in the book. My book was 1Q84, has anyone here read it? It is by Murakami and is relatively new. The places/event I have so far are
1) The playground slide
2) The interstate highway with the emergency ladder and such
3) The changing of the police uniforms
4) the hand holding in the classroom ?
5) Sakigawe ?
6) The home for battered women
And that is all I have got heh heh any ideas?
SOOOO, "ReadIt1st" failed me. Or I failed by doing something wrong, because I was not informed that The Woman in Black is a book and I am going to go see it tomorrow!! Now I won't have the chance or reading before watching :(
After I read 'Looking For Alaska' last year, I wrote a song.
It has taken me until TODAY to make to finish recording it, make a nice video for it and put it up on my YouTube channel. So, without further delay, here it is for all who wish to hear/see it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lK8uVt4J-g8&feature=g-all-lik&am...
I hope you like it person reading this! I'm currently reading TFiOS, song to come soon maybe... :)
I can't even convince my parents to let me get it!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey! I'm Canadian too. Sad about not being able to go to the Tour de Nerdfighting as well? Or are you one of them lucky Vancouverian ducks? I just finished TFiOS and my God it was AMAZING. I'm still reeling.
