    Hi all - this looks like a very cool and interesting site. I teach English Literature and Language to students aged 15-18 at a co-ed state high school (we call them colleges) in a small town in a rural area of the North Island of New Zealand. I am an avid reader off all sorts of things... I couldn't possibly name a favourite book or author.

    looking forward to getting to know some people here

    Talking hello... hello... testing... uh... I'm new here

    Hello all!

    I stumbled onto this website while doing some research for a class I am teaching in the fall. I know, I know... its a bit nerdy doing research for fall already but I enjoy what I do.

    The class is called Religion and Literature and I am researching Dracula right now... any research advice would be greatly appreciated. Here are the other texts I am using (again... any comments or resources are welcomed):

    The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
    Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
    Dracula by Bram Stoker
    In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
    To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

    I'm excited about being a part of the forum... but I'm a technophobe and still learning my way around... so please be patient.

    Thanks!
    LadyKate

    Hello from Old England

    Sorry no fancy avatar just Eccles.

    I have been reading more and more American novels and works of late and being a distance away don't really know what other authors would appeal. More recent reads would be Niffeneger, Franzen, Kerouac. I have been quite taken with Franzen's worried style and I'm open to any ideas of a similar genre.

    Eccles is where I'm from originally, a little town in Greater Manchester.

    hello Eccles

    And the gates of this Chapel were shut,
    And Thou shalt not, writ over the door:
    So I turned to the Garden of Love,
    That so many sweet flowers bore. - "The Garden of Love", William Blake.

    Hello. I came across this site looking for poetry ideas for my 8 year old daughter. I am an avid reader of all sorts and want to pass this enthusiasm on to her. Ability to read is not an issue, she could read before kindergarten, just motivation. Cheers.
