Sandy, so funny!  

Vicki, glad you are enjoying Jane Eyre. Frustrating when audio book fails.  Paper copies always work. That's why I made my students turn in hard copies of their essays.  My granddaughter has had so many  problems with electronic submissions.  I'm always surprised when the prof doesn't believe that something when wrong with technology.

Has anyone read The Eyre Affair?  Just finished The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis. It's a science fiction story about a woman who time travels by to time of Black Death accidentally. It's very slow moving because of setting the details but a good story to listen to.

Dead Poet's Society is one of my favorites.  Williams was oh so funny in Mrs. Doubtfire!  Kept me laughing all the way through!  He surely will be missed.  Did anyone see him in One Hour Photo?  Man was that an intense flick!  He also played a guest spot on Law and Order SVU some years back and was really in top form then.

Cute, Sandy!

I saw that movie a few years ago. It was very good. I think it was the most serious movie I'd ever seen Robin Williams in. Very moving.

Comment by Vilma/AR yesterday

Sandy, too funny.

I just saw Robin Williams movie, Dead Poets Society.  This is the first I  saw it and it is very good.

Amanda, I am finishing up the second (and last for me, as I have to read them out of order, depending on what is available at the library) book in that series by Karen White...The Girl on Legare Street. I love that series!

My daughter checked out Jane Eyre in audio for me to listen to. I am loving it, but the 3rd disc (out of 16!) was damaged and wouldn't play the last chapter. She gave me her hard copy last night so I could read the chapter I missed.

I will have to check that out thanks, Sandy!

Ellen, I love the #1 Ladies Detective Series, by Alexander McCall Smith. I listened to the audio books and the voice of the narrator was so lovely, that it made it an even better experience. I haven't read anything else by him, yet though. I will have to look and see what my library has.

I've only reading the new book and Heaven Can Wait.  I liked Heaven because it was a story over many years.  It was poignant because of the changes but that's how life it.  Life changes over time.  

Have you read the Alexander McCall Smith books?  I reading his latest.  If you want something happy, choose his.  There are several different series.  One takes place is Botswana and is so calming to read or listen to.  The Bertie series is about an apartment building in Edinburgh.  The third main series is the Philosophy club.  My daughter doesn't care of this one but I like it.

Thanks for reminding me.  I read the second in the series first.  It was easier to read the first after reading the second.  She faces a lot of struggles but it is very interesting how they could homestead such a difficult land.
