Re: What are you reading?

Pygmalion by Shaw. It's quite different from the movie. I love Shaw's sarcastic comments. We have quite the same sense of humour
Which movie did you see? The 1938 production with Wendy Hiller and Leslie Howard is brilliant.
My appologies for answering so late. I completely overlooked your question.
No, I saw the 1964 one with Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn.
Thanks for the tip! I'll try to get the 1938 one as well =)


Current read: das Christkind kommt (the christ child comes) by Marga Müller. She was a popular writer in the 30s but is almost forgotten nowadays. In my opinion she's a bit too religious but that one is pretty good (and quite funny). I read it every Christmas
Over here, we get our presents by the Christchild. It's usually depicted as a curly haired somewhat androgynous child of about 6 -8 years. On the pic you can only see it from behind but you might still get an impression of what children in Germany expect to get a glimpse of on the evening of the 24th
