I have to ask does anyone know what has happened to John Q? he wasn't a prolific poster of comments but I enjoyed reading his interesting and informative reviews on historical books and he doesn't seem to have posted for a very long while?

Hello Apple,

I think he got a little offside with some comments he made once, so perhaps that had something to do with his absence.  I don't know though.

He was unbelievably rude to individual posters, and was asked to refrain from making personal comments and stick to discussing books.  I don't think he's posted since then, but he is still on the membership list, so maybe he lurks and will see that you have missed him, Apple.  I agree, he made some interesting posts about books and literature - but personal insults in response to other posters' interesting comments about books is not called for.

Oh I see, thanks for that Evie actually now I come to think of it I remember him having a few words with Himadri  on a thread once but I don't think that can be the time you mean as I don't recall him ever being "unbelievably rude" to anyone, I always thought he was a straight up guy with interesting comments/posts anyway its a shame, I liked his posts, hope he does lurk and reads this!

Also while I am on the subject, Himadri doesn't seem to have been around for a while either does anyone know whats happened to him?

I'm here occasionally. Actually I haven't had the energy to post, most of the time I'm too tired to think!

Does anyone know what happened to  Bookfreak who lived on Malta?  He was coming on a visit to Chichester a few years ago and was asking my advice on what to see at the theatre.  Then he seemed to stop posting.

I haven't posted much recently as the last book I read, about a Victorian feminist, was very academic and I think I'm suffering from the mental equivalent of muscle strain.  However, today arrived from Amazon  Lynne Truss's "Tennyson's Gift" and C.J. Sansom's "Heartstone." I hope at least one of those will soothe me back into reading.

Like others, I have had some family difficulties recently which have eaten into my spare (therefore reading) time.  I have only just started being able to find the time for reading again, despite taking some leave to coincide with the Easter holidays.

There seem to be a few of us going through difficult times at present.   I do hope things will improve for those who are in difficult situations.
