    i will leave this up until after easter, as i have to go away.

    due to the small amount of nominations, not sure if its worth a vote or if you want to just go for the winner here?

    Can I please ask for a favor? It might also help solving the present dilemma without voting. Please, please, make it any other author than Carroll till I finally get back from my planned travels - which is going to happen at the end of March. Bears love Carroll and would so hate to miss the discussion!

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh. Uh, I thought that Jean was very much into discussing that one, as well.

    I had to choose, you see. I am really horribly busy at the moment. I will, hopefully, have a lot of time in summer, and I will try to catch up with the Fahrenheit discussion - but I so dearly want to be here all the time during Carroll talks!

    As far as Farenheit 451 is concerned, I even have a couple of questions I would like everyone to answer, if possible, and replies to which I'll be looking forward to reading; maybe I'll even have the time to post them before I go. If I don't, however, it's just as well, because they, basically, can be reduced to this one (or rather two, because they are slightly different): why is this book considered good, and why do you personally love it. I know they sound very trivial, only this time I really truly do not understand and really truly would like to know the answers; thank you in advance. (note, also in case I won't be able to make it in time: I think it would be ok as a very short story, but for a novel it lacks - well, it lacks everything.)
