    Yes, there’s going to be books in other languages but I’m afraid not many 🙁 There will also be books (sometimes with cassettes) to learn other languages, but again only a few.
    Worth having a look anyway.

    LAST MINUTE UPDATE ON EUROPE DAY[/size:87a2d98e55]

    There has been a couple of changes regarding what will happen tomorrow (o rather in a few hours) at Central Library to celebrate Europe Day.

    ~ The food sampling has been cancelled. [b:87a2d98e55]:([/b:87a2d98e55]
    ~ There will be a small prize for those answering the quiz correctly (only 6 questions!)
    ~ We’ve received more freebies to give away, so to add to what I mentioned before we have free pens, fridge magnets, Europe Direct Post-Its, booklets on European issues/info, mobile phone cords (to hang around your neck) and books with basic words/sentences in all EU languages.

    Hope to see you there. 🙂

    The Polish courses at Leeds Met uni started last October 2007 and they’ll finish next May 2008.

    There’s a Beginner’s course on Wednesdays at 6:30pm (2 hours)
    an Elementary course on Thursdays at 6:15pm (1.5 hours)
    and an Advanced course on Thursdays at 8pm (1 hour).

    The teacher is the same for all 3 courses; she’s called Ewa Pyrah.
    Each course costs £130.
    You’ll have to wait till next September to enrol in the 08/09 year because you can’t joined the ongoing ones.

    Here’s a link to Joseph Priestley College[/color:9cda5e8262] in Woodlesford (LS268EX).

    And another link to Bradford College[/color:9cda5e8262]. Go to page 31 for Polish.

    These courses have also started, so I much doubt you’ll be able to join them up. Best thing to do is to phone the colleges and enquire.

    On [b:44a5a1c8a8]Friday 12th October[/b:44a5a1c8a8] it takes place in Leeds the 3rd edition of the annual Light Night.

    During the evening and most of the night there will be activities, events, workshops, exhibitions, games, trails all around the city centre and nearby areas, and for free. All very artsy and crazy but a real fun at the same time.

    Here’s a [u:44a5a1c8a8]link[/u:44a5a1c8a8] to the website where you’ll find more information, photos, previous years’ Light Nights, what’s going to be on and where, and a suggested route to follow or hop on and off.

    We have leaflets in the library (Central Library – ground floor) and maps with the trails. And I’ll paste here a link with a .pdf of the map, in case you can’t pick a copy up.

    The ideal way is to form a group of people and go and visit the different locations together; it’s more fun. 😀

    Last year I couldn’t go to the Illuminati[/color:44a5a1c8a8] performance but I’m not going to miss it this year, since I think it’s gonna be amazing. Performed by the Red Crow team and taking place in the Royal Armouries at 8pm (you’ll need to book tickets – £5).

    If anyone wants to join me, get in contact with me. 😉

    RHYTHM is the word with the highest ratio of consonants per vowel. And even so, Y can also be considered as a consonant.

    INDIVISIBILITY is the word with the biggest amount of Is (if you count Y as I, it’d be even bigger)

    in reply to: Don’t you know what to read? #68205

    I guess people are still traditional when it comes to choose books to read (nobody seems to have used the abovementioned website).

    Well, not a problem. I welcome you to post here your personal book recommendations.
    Please write title and author, perhaps a little summary of the plot, and why you liked the book.

    Here’s my first contribution:

    [b:730751b5f6][i:730751b5f6]Intimacy[/color:730751b5f6][/i:730751b5f6][/b:730751b5f6] by [b:730751b5f6]Hanif Kureishi[/color:730751b5f6][/b:730751b5f6]

    A married man father to 2 sons plans to leave his wife after 7 years of marriage without saying anything to her. They’ve got a good life but he doesn’t love his wife – and she doesn’t love him. He isn’t 100% sure about what he’s about to do and wishes deep inside that a last minute "action" from his wife will bring back the intimacy he lost.[/color:730751b5f6]

    When reading this book you’re most likely to take parts in the story either with him or against. I was in favour. How moral and ethical, how cruel and careless, how selfish or brave is him? There for you to decide.

    I found this book quite uplifting and motivating; not because I’m planning to leave anybody (well, I don’t any family to leave), but because it encourages people to take the decision (hard decision indeed) to choose your own truthful happiness instead of a fake self-imposed facade covering the real unhappy family life.
