    Default 09/27/2010 - First Week eRead of Marked (Elisabeth Naughton)

    Here are the chapters/pages to read and comment on for the Week of 09/27/2010:

    Chapters 1-7 (Page 78)

    By the Sunday that ends this week's eRead, I'd like to ask people provide at least 2 comments with at least one entry that is unique to what had already been said for the week.

    If this is too limiting, really feel free to start any discussions before then or in any order on these chapters.

    1st Commenter: Donna (AKA wdblevin)
    2nd Commenter: KatFromMD
    3rd Commenter: Joykins
    4th Commenter: CeCeSG

    I am so excited to begin this eRead with those that can/want to join in... 'Talk' to y'all during the week!

    Okay, I am through Chapter 4 and I have so many things I want to ask/chat about... The book is very good (to me) so far!

    FYI: I will limit my comments to two. I think some of my 'questions' might get answered by the time I finish Chapter 7.

    I hope no one minds (since Donna is first on the list), but I thought I'd add in a comment WHICH CONTAINS NO SPOILERS, and might be useful to those who are still reading. It was driving me a little nuts, so I had to go to the shelf and pull out my Greek to English dictionary to figure out the Greek words Theron uses. As you probably guessed by the root of the word, "gynaika" means "woman". Likewise, "andras" means "man" and "skata" clearly translates to a slightly stronger version of "crap".

    Casey says that the term of endearment that her grandmother uses, "meli", isn't Greek, but in fact it is. "Meli", or μέλι , means "honey" in Greek. For all I know, it is only used to describe the bee product. I have no idea whether it is used as a term of endearment as it is in English.

    I am again astonished that my knowledge of Greek letters is useful. (See, kids, you DO use what you learn in math class in real life!)

    I'm excited to start discussing it, too! I'm, um, almost done, but I'll try not to spoil it for anybody!

    Great minds and all that 'skata' <giggle>... I went to a translation site for all those, too! I knew from some other Greek character romances that 'meli' is Greek and means what you noted.

    After I started reading it on Sunday, I had to remind myself to stop. I was going to pick it up again last night, but got busy doing moderator stuff here on NB's and crashed after that.

    If tonight isn't too busy, I'll finish the rest of the first week's chapters and get my comments on.

    Oh, and I tried to use the built in dictionary for the first time on my Nook... Obviously, it didn't work for the Greek words.

    *****

    I do have a question Nook related to this book, what do the italicized words mean - I see some while I am reading and I am not sure if it is intentional or just something quirky the font being used is doing to the text?

    Go ahead and post!
