Hello Simon and friends,
Mercé and Bïa have asked me to write about books. Well besides films, books are another thing that I´m really into. Wherever I go I carry a book with me.
My favourite novels are the ones which explore the anguish and conflicts of human being mind. Therefore, I really enjoying reading Dostoyevsky books. His novels are very thought-provoking with an intense and gripping narrative. Consequently is quite difficult to put his books down . Moreover, Dostoyesky presents us a range of characters with an unique insight into their personalities. Hideous fathers, naive philosophers, desparete gamblers and tormented souls are just an example of some of Dostoeysky´s characters. Anyway I can´t recommend reading Dostoyesky novels enough. If you haven´t read any of his books yet, just have a go. You won´t regret :-). Simon and friends, could you tell me which are your favourite authors or books please?
Well one of my favourite English writers is Jane Austen. I´ve read almost all her books. Her heroines are so reasonable and they are always trying to not reveal their feelings. This gives me the impression that Jane Austin was a bit like that.
Anyway, I guess I fond of her novels because they were the first books that I read in an unbridged English version :-).
Oh friends! I think we´re going to have a rainy weekend in Mogi. I was planning on going to an English workshop with some friends on Sunday. Let´s hope the weather gets better :-).

Dear Marianna! My mum is saying thank you and she´s also sending a kiss to you :-).
Hello Olesya! I´ve just seen a video of Haibane Renmei on the YouTube. Oh the colours are beautiful and I like the song played in the backgroung, so soft. By the way, is this anime about an angels school? Everybody there has wings and an aureola over their heads. Anyway, I also like to watch anime or any other film whithout dubbing. It seems that you miss something when films are dubbed. Thanks for your reccomendations :-).
Hi Liz! Could you please tell me what´s your major at university? Oh I hope we can meet on Facebook too :-).

You´re welcome Paulo! The Flo-Joe has been helping me a lot in my studies. By the way Paulo, do you have problems with key word transformation? This exercise and the open cloze in Use of English are the most difficult for me. I have to work a bit more in this area.
Hi Maurício! I´m glad you found my tip useful. I hope we can meet on the Facebook too :-).
Hi dear Niddo! Oooh my mum has tried to teach me something. However, I was a terrible pupil and after a while she gave up to teach me how to draw :-).
