Cool send a link if you have one ^^.

Actually speaking of novels has anyone read like a novel where main character is in the interdimensional detective in distant future where due to the massive amount of technological advances everyone, for some odd reason, lost their ability to be creative. So instead people have started this illegal process of using dimensional travel to steal people from books and then bring them to the real world and forced to be actors and stage plays.

However, the problem is when they take them from the book the story changes and infact the essentially dies becuase it has no longer an ending, so its up to the main character to find and capture the person stealing books and restore balance the multiverse.

In one particular story, the main character has to chase a thief into an book on the Ethics of Engineering, where the entire cast is on this like mystery cruise ship that every engineering and ethical problem starts occuring on and the main character has to make ethical judgements and fix things. Of course its one ethic problem after another, so he is essentially trapped in a world of bad ethics

Eventually, that book ends by the main character realising he has to sacrifice himself an row away from the ship, becuase all the ethical problems occur because he is there.

Does anyone heard of a book or series that is like this?

If so do you remember the name?

I would never do that to you. Ever. In fact, I'm trying to gouge my eyes out as we speak.

Yeah, in hindsight, after reading the summary of the novels, I might understand why. Orginally I saw the as a smilie orginally. XD

So have you read any good books lately?

Full of cold

Was sent home from work early on Tuesday with aching joints etc.

Having had the flu twice in 34 years I felt I was going to get it for a third time

Fortunately turned out to be a devilish cold but still at home, physically recovered it seems but maybe still full of lethargy, no zest.


Good news is that I am using the time to explore writer's resources

I like it

Lady Cibelle,

I'm a newbie and am thrilled that there is a space where people can get to now each other.

LadyCibelle, I'm terribly sorry to hear about your daughter. I have kids too and it's vital that you always inform yourself independently of the doctors. They're only human and may not even think of things if it wasn't given much weight in their training.


How I am: I've just fed my kids and am looking out the window, wishing the sun would shine.

If you don't get an answer, I'd suggest you ask here.

Gerber had a problem selling lil jars of baby food in Africa. it seems the people there didn't want to buy jars of baby
That's actually a fairly old urban legend.

Just a very quick, stupid question I hope one of you could answer. This is the sentence me and my friend are debating:

"“You gotta tell me when this show is on again, it’s fun.”

He's saying it should 'its' instead of 'it's' and the Word grammar check agrees with him. While I think it should be 'it's' because it can easily be "it is fun" or "it was fun." Sorry for the dumb question.

The "it's" is correct here. The punctuation isn't, which may be what is making the grammar check report incorrectly. There should be either a semicolon or a period after "again," not a comma.

Also, it's not "me and my friend" debating. It's "my friend and I." Others go first in this construction, and you wouldn't say "me am debating," would you? You'd say "I am debating." Both issues here are common problems with colloquial "American speak."

Talking Kicking the fire back to life!

Love this idea! I'm having a pretty good day, but then I almost always do. You see I have bipolar disorder and was diagnosed 6 years ago but have lived with it since I was a young child. I thank god every day for the meds that keep me stable so I can work and care for my family. The side effects are a bit of a bummer but when your spouse comes up to you and says "I like you better now" you know there's a big personality change.

So yeah, I'm having a great day, and I'm glad the people I'm editing for are getting such a good response on their stories.

My little girl has a thyroid disorder that she was born with, shes been seen and treated by the same specialist for 2 years. I can't stand him and he acts like I'm not even in the room and won't answer my questions. But when my brother goes with me for moral support he'll talk to him about any questions or concerns he has . I wish there were another specialist in our area but theres not. So right now I am angry and frustrated and at a loss as to what I can do to make things better for her.
