Order of the Phoenix is making me very... not sure if its angry or frustrated.

Order of the Phoenix is the worst book in my opinion. It's too long, and i get angry when I read it cuz Harry keeps getting held down by the Man. (or Umbridge, in this case)

Ten little Soldier boys went out to dine;

One choked his little self and then there were nine.

Nine little Soldier boys sat up very late;

One overslept himself and then there were eight.

Eight little Soldier boys traveling in Devon;

One said he'd stay there and then there were seven.

Seven little Soldier boys chopping up sticks;

One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.

Six little Soldier boys playing with a hive;

A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.

Five little Soldier boys going in for law;

One got in Chancery and then there were four.

Four little Soldier boys going out to sea;

A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.

Three little Soldier boys walking in the zoo;

A big bear hugged one and then there were two.

Two Little Soldier boys sitting in the sun;

One got frizzled up and then there was one.

One little Soldier boy left all alone;

He went out and hanged himself and then there were none.

Well that sounds like a happy little book. Smiler

Agatha Christie?

How have you been doing pretty little Finnish girl? Smiler

P.S. - I Read your list using Emile Simone titles. Don't know her. But I always trust the musical taste of my fellow Regina brothers and sisters. Smiler I think I will look her up.

I'm presenting a paper on Friday at a conference on the Albert Camus novel 'The Fall', and I think the folk here who haven't read it would enjoy it. And it's short, too Big Grin

i had to read Chaucer's Canterbury Tales for a class..

i actually thought of regina during the prologue because of the way he describes characters. i dont know its just all very sincere and it all rhymes which is hard to get used to then pretty fun

i'd recommend the prologue for sure, miller's tale, and wife of bath's tale. they're not too long and you can pick away at them til all of the sudden you've read them all!

but i love that agatha christie book Smiler

also requiem for a dream absolutely annihilated me as a person for a while. one i'll never forget.

I've been doing just fine. You?

And yeah, it's a Christie. I just started reading it in school. Papa Poirot is awesome.

You really should listen to Émilie, she is absolutely brilliant.

Ottakaa onnellinen päivä

Big Grin "Do take a happy day" I'm sorry, it's not really that bad. The correct phrase would be "hyvää päivänjatkoa". The both words are in partitive (hyvää päivänjatkoa) and you're just basically wishing a good rest of the day.
