I got “American Psycho” by Bret Easton Ellis from the public bookcase on Poppelsdorfer Allee today – without bookcrossing.com label. (More people need to use bookcrossing.com! Hey, have a look at bookcrossing.com!) Supposedly, it’s much better than the movie, so I’m looking forward to reading it.

British English is a wonderful language, with loads of brilliantly lurid and descriptive words. A compendium can be found at The Best of British. Being a fan of Douglas Adams and Stephen Fry, the joy of reading this dictionary is akin to the german dialect tests I discovered recently. Local dialects provide a richness and texture for our language that is otherwise in danger of being lost in the wake of global media and communications.
