English teachers in foreign lands teach their pupils strange things. So I expect ATW to know some random weird facts about the UK most of which aren't true.

After around 15 years of living in the UK I've got plenty of weird facts that are true :smile

Brilliant! I have most of Sir J G Frazer's 12 volume magnum opus The Golden Bough (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Golden_Bough) in mega PDF files, and now perhaps someone will scan the remainder. :banana:

The Internet Archive is way ahead of you (http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=The%20golden%20bough%20frazer) :)

In fact they have the twelve volumes scanned multiple times from different university libraries.

I got a fair few free Kindle books the other day including a bunch of Dickens. I find an eReader encourages you to read more widely since so many of the classics are free.

Really? Wow, that's incredible! How come I've been using the Internet for twenty years yet never encountered this concept before?
