    That is a lovely offer...I still remember some basic german from high school 25yrs ago...I guess its possible I could learn another language. :look
    bahaha I read that in my head and it sounds like a frog choking...your version sounds much better, even after reading the translation :lol

    Yes. I agree. I think. :p
    Ive always wanted to learn another language but I think getting an e-book (I really dont want to ) may be easier :lol

    it supposed to say I'm not good at learning other people languages. Especially since I'm having quite a hard time myself learning languages.
    I even forget words when I'm typing..

    Kerwin, I think we all miss words when typing and writing. Proof that the mind is faster than the hand. I actually understood the above post to mean you were not good at helping other people learn new languages. :)
    Since your little profile pic lists Sweden I'm guessing you speak Swedish...is it your first language?

    I dont think I've ever listened to someone speak Swedish in real life. I know I've never tried to read it before. Perhaps if I was more familiar with the language in any way reading the above quote (? Phrase, comment? ) would not have been so difficult. Or probably made me over confident and just mangled the words and pronunciation even more.

    My boss's husband is Swedish. They visit there every summer. The only Swedish I know is Ikea... ;)

    One of my all time favorites is "Watership Down" by Richard Adams. I also love "Rebecca".

    Heather Brewer's new books Legacy of Tril books are all about girl power. Heather Brewer is well-known for her Eighth grade bites books so she is not really new but she is a local author!

    I can read print books much faster than I can read an ebook on the tablet. I thought that it would be the other way around because the tablet's print is bigger.

    Tablets are awful for reading on in my opinion. Swap it for an E-ink reader and its better than print for me.

    WoT has so many references to old myths that it makes me want to go back and read!

    Glare on the screen might be part of the problem.
