It is Catalan, Dom. But I am reading a Dutch translation.
Having a hard time already learning Spanish, so no time for Catalan. :)


Once you know Spanish I don't think Catalan is such a huge leap, especially if you have a bit of French too.
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

I know a bit of French and Spanish is getting there as well, so I assume I can speak some Catalan then. ;)

Same with English and American, I suppose. :D
I still have the intention of adding both English and American to my CV in the language section. ;)

From watching The Wire, I realised that American was very much a foreign language.  Had to have the subtitles on to watch that  ;D

Halfway through To Kill a MockingBird at the moment.


I had to read that for O level.  Still it is very good.

I am about 1/2 the way through "Le Comte de Monte Cristo" part 1 by Dumas.
500 pages down, only 300 to go. Will we ever get to Paris.....

The title sounds intriguing! Care to offer a brief explanation?

Just finished Stephen King's "Insomnia". Some good ideas but the pacing is haphazard. Now reading part 2 of The Strain Trilogy - "The Fall". Marvellously creepy and absolutely flies along.
