  1. Well I have to say. Bridget Jones’s diary is really funny. Honest. It’s not ‘chick lit’ at all.

    On the other hand, nobody should read ‘Far from the madding crowd’ ever. We were meant to read it at school, and it is unreadable.

  2. I might read Lord of The Flies again soon.

    Hope youre doing okay, I know times are hard for you right now. I hope you can find some peace and quiet.
