Indeed!

I see though a small point here. You used the word 'was' instead, I'm sure, where you meant to write 'am'. Such as "when I am writing some FF." yes? Small difference, but also a large difference. Surely you grasp, then, the implied gentle nudge? yes? Excellent! (Whimpering, whining and pleading will follow should you need stronger encouragement.)

Sure, the book wouldn't have made much difference on the size and weight of that package!
Yes. We opted for a large box. And you pack a box very well! Payment back to you using paypal, if I recall correctly, was not hard. And I think I sent a small amount of the Eli candies off to several of the members here. I should ask the kids if they'd like a new sampling - I think they would be upon me in no time.

Yeah, but I need a plot. Which I'm having difficulty finding.

Hey guys, do you know what is this ?

Here: http://www.adlibris.com/se/bok/vampyren ... 9170530821

Vampyren I Blackeberg, it seems very interesting.

Anyone read it ?
I don't know a single word in swedish, but it looks like an analysis of LTROI or writing process by JAL ?


Edit: I just googled it better+translate and is just a shortened "easy to read" version of the novel, aparently.

I'm embarrassed to say how many times I've read it but I know what you mean.It's so well written once you start it's hard to think of anything else.I should have taken notes of the parts I particularly liked as well as dialogue ,places and times and such.I'll do it next re-read. :lol:
Please Oskar.Be me for a little while.

Almost a little embarrassed, I've read LTROI at least 6-7 times in the past year. Same with everything else that is in english. Except LTODD (only read it once, with the exception of TFP) I need some advice. You know what style I like. What are some other good reads? And JAL, hurry with some new stuff, please. The translations can't come fast enough!
I got the book last week and im alredy halfway thru my secound read...pls help
