Rosanna tagged me a while ago to do this. It slipped my mind for a couple of weeks, but here it is.

Instructions: Look at the list of books below.

  3. You bugger ('scuse me french and familiarity) you've read all the books I've read.

    And maybe you've avoided quite a few I've also either deliberately missed - or ones what've snuck under the collective Old Farts' radar.

    Did try with good intentions and good grace to read "The English Patient" but fell at the first hurdle/chapter. Turgid stuff!

    Reckon you'd've read Biggles and Tarzan too. (If not I want to know why not!)

    Not familiar at all, at all with "The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants" but does sound decidedly intriguing!

  4. ...an as uncool as it might seem I loved "Watership Down".

    This from a lad what spent most of his youth earning his pocket money from ferreting, trapping and shooting bunnies.

  5. M'lord. How many Biggles books were there? I have read over three quarters of them and a couple of Tarzan ones I think, but Biggles was my favourite. Do you think he was rooting Lord Algernon? While I have read Watership Down, I can't remember it. Was it about rabbits and the Great Wall of China?

    I may have popped off a bunny or two with a .22 or more likely with my aim, a .303 and I expect I could still set a rabbit trap. Not proud of it though. Bring on the myxo.
