sigh.....goodreads cannot pull up a Rose for Virtue by Norah Lofts even tho its in my reading list and on Fans of Norah Lofts. I give up. Maybe someone else can get it to work. If you can thanks.


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Canary, what usually works in these cases is copying the ISBN number from Amazon's "Product Details" section on the relevant product page and inserting that in the search window. I was able to add "Rose for Virtue" that way, too.


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Canary, we haven't had that many exchanges yet, but for what it's worth, you strike me as ANYTHING BUT a person incapable of independent thought.

I noticed someone put "The Remains of the Day" on the "Evil Inside" list -- was that you? It made me think, gee, I need to reread that ...


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Yes, though not necessarily (just) from my uncle's side of the family.

Wow, but your college lit class sounds like quite a experience! What a great teacher he must have been.

We had little, if any of that kind of thing in school -- certainly not in university, where most of the core material was just "read" (i.e., presented) by professors and there were only a few types of classes that were even geared towards any kind of discussion at all. Moving to the U.S. and experiencing the Socratic method even in large graduate school classes was a truly eye-opening experience for me ... ;)


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) He sounds like Mr. Keating in "Dead Poets Society"!

I have never read or seen Dead Poets Society as I heard its too sad. This was about 1972 or so. Maybe 1971. Its the fav of a friend of my mine but she says its very sad.

Yecenia Barrera Does anyone know what the name of the book is, its got a rose and a gate on the cover. I can't remember really good but something to do with a girl and maybe a ghost and roses. Any help is appreciated.


message 8: by Pippa (new)

Pippa Sorry Yecenia, I don't know what that book was, but has anyone read For Love of a Rose? It's my mother's favourite book, but I haven't actually read it. (Must do that!)
