I love the bit about the f*** controller - I used to think the same about him... And I too had to read this to my son - God I hated it. I much prefer listening to Ringo Stah doing the voiceovers on the TV programs, although the chuggy theme tune always drilled my head.

Your other books are very interesting too. I must read Tess one of these days. We had to do Far From the Madding Crowd this year and I really liked Hardy's style of writing.

Please excuse me. I vowed after my last me me it would be the last because I am writing about me all the time. Hope you understand.

I'm glad you're pleased. I didn't want to impose. I'll check out your list later. I'm glad 7 made you laugh, sore tooth and all.
