Jude Law is probably the most beautiful man i've ever seen.

Thought we were talking about books! I haven't seen Cold Mountain but I read the book and really liked it.

Just finished The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. Without a doubt the best book ive ever read. If you havent read it, go find it.

I read "By The River Piedra, I sat down and wept" by Paolo Coelho just recently and loved it as well. I find he's a tad too religious for my taste but the story is compelling enough to overlook it. I've been told to read "The Alchemist" a lot of times, I think I should finally look into it!

Is it written like that or would a novice be able to comprehend it?

What would you reccommend for whetting the appetite before travels in India?

weejoe.... what can i say about india...it has to be seen to be believed..
first of all, what r u looking into when u think india... its not the cliched elephants walking the streets..bullockcarts on roads..as i understand is percieved by lot of people..
let me start ... mumbai the commercial capital has the most amazing nightlife..work culture is mindblowing..the worlds multinationals heading offices here..callcentres u name it ..malls ..the blending of history and post modern era.... basically all u need,u get here ..india is this and much more.. there is history in india..jaipur udaipur agra..where the taj mahal is located..

Quoting Lil Liz

I agree about Jude Law being yummy. I like him too.

But don't bother seeing Cold Mountain. It's poor. There was no chemistry between Law & Kidman.

And I echo those who recommend "The Alchemist". It's excellent!

Just a little bedtime reading ....

QUOTATIONS FROM CHAIRMAN MAO TSE-TUNG:

" A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing an embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, and courteous, restrained and magnaminous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another. "

-"Report on an Investigation of the Peasant Movementin Hunan" (March 1927), Selected Works, Vol I, p.28
