I would be reading the ninth one, but I had forgotten I hadn't read the eight book. So I started the ninth book a few weeks after Christmas and suddenly realized I missed some really important details and had to stop. So now I've finally got my hands on the eight book. :laughing: Ah, story of my life. My memory is horrid. *shakes head ruefully*

Huh? I live in the United States and I got like five of the series from the library (I'm missing the latest one and the third book, sadly, but that's because of the library not having them).

Well, they may not have the latest ones out here and it's entirely possible that those were given to the library by someone who lived in the UK or elsewhere originally but moved over here, or they ordered them from the UK (or elsewhere) or something. I don't know. I need to hurry up and finish the second one, I mostly finished the first one because there was a thunderstorm that night and I really shouldn't be on the computer during a thunderstorm.

For school : Micromegas by Voltaire, Le Mariage de Figaro (I guess it translates 'Figaro's Wedding') by Beaumarchais.
For myself : The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. I loved the movie with Josiane Balasko, and the book is quite nice too :)

Ooo, I got to listen to part of Mozart's opera Le Nozze di Figaro (the Italian title, I think). I enjoyed listening to it. :)

I'm reading Sense and Sensibility and a collection of Edgar Allen Poe's poems and short stories. Both are pretty good so far. :) Still haven't finished the Iliad. :P

Currently nose deep in The Opal Deception at the moment. I'm having an intensive read-through of the entire series again - moving onto reading both WARP books, as I'll most likely be getting a pre-launch copy of WARP 3 to read and review prior to the official book going on sale! Busy busy, though I ploughed through Arty 1-3 in less than two weeks in my spare time!

Mockingbird is quite good ^_^

I just searched it on the Net and couldn't really find it though, too many "To Kill a Mockingbird" results .-.
