hi Dalibor, it's good to hear from you. I hope you had a happy birthday. 
Did you know there's a Vorkosigan story that was printed in Croatian even before English? It's called Winterfair Gifts and is in a collection of stories called _Irresistible Forces_, edited by Catherine Asaro. If you've seen it, I bet you got to read it before most of us on the list. 
  The summer I learned to type, I ended up with a horrible rash from poison oak. Since I didn't recognize the plant while pulling weeds in the yard, I didn't wash the sap off right away and I got a rash ALL over my hands. This was such a distraction during typing class that I barely passed. I still try to reread what I type to fix mistakes. 
My name's Kevin, I'm 51, and I live in Indianapolis, a town famous for car racing. Despite my nane, I'm female. My parents liked the name enough to gie it to me, but it's usually a man's name.

>> Dalibor asked:
>>> Can I know which is your favorite Bujold book?
>>> My is ACC. By
>> Welcome, Dalibor!  We are glad you can join us.
>> Do you read Lois Bujold's books in English or in translation (in what

>> My favorite book depends a lot on my mood and which ones I have NOT read

>> But I like all of them.
>> When I first read "Mirror Dance" I disliked it.  It was too stressful and

>> much - I had read the book before.  So I could then enjoy all the good 
>> parts
>> of Mark overcoming his difficulties.
>> Cetaganda was too shallow for me the first time I read it.  It just wasn't
>> as good as the other books.  But when I read it a second time, then a 
>> third
>> time, I like it much better.
>> Lois packs so much into her books that they are good on many re-readings.
>> Please tell us more about yourself and what you like about Lois's books.
