Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

Anyone read it? I am just reading it, and enjoy it very much.

I guess it's not read very widely Smile Anyway, I will recommend it to the group, it is a lovely, and very short, read. I wouldn't buy it, though. Just get it from the library.

Dictionary Definition : Tourterelle--a unique specimen of the female gender of Homo Sapiens that exhibits behaviors such as excessive procrastination, chocolate creation (in direct contradiction to the Law of Conservation of Matter), and overall insanity. Common names include Nicholle, CQ (Chocolate Queen), Crackhead, and Miss Martini Maniac. Lately, this individual has reportedly been seen dancing in a banana costume and drinking an excessive amount of martinis.

The title sounds very familiar, but I haven't read it. What's it about?

It's about the Queen of England. One day, she visits a travelling library, and picks up a book... and from then on, she keeps reading, everywhere, all the time, until her reputation starts to suffer and her staff wonder whether she might be sick. It is very funny, very British, but also very short.
