21757 Also, for A, is a locker door OK or does it have to be the door of a house?
21757 Would Arabian Nights: A Selection work for D (short stories) and also for 2, an author I have never read before? The author(s) is/are anonymous, but I am sure I have not read anything else that the author(s) wrote, if indeed there are any other works in existence written by the same author(s), which there probably aren't. I have not read any other books by the translator, Sir Richard Burton.

In my hurry to get the readerboard up to date for the midpoint, I missed the fact that you posted only part 1 of a book for task 25.6B. I am sorry that it took me a couple days..."


Oh OK! I have already started volume 2 so I will repost that task when I have finished it. I guess then I can claim it as a big book counting the pages in both volumes added together, would that be right?
