    Actually, it's legal for under 14's to drink alcohol in a beer garden. So if you can find a pub that has one, technically, it would be legal for you to drink :beerglass:....

    ...Not that I would know anything about underage drinking :angelblush:

    I think that's changed to 16 now, but I may, as ever, be wrong.

    Also it's way too darn cold to drink outside.

    I find the idea of us all sitting alone in licensed premises across the nation, in a corner on our laptops with a book by our side and a pint to hand, using the free wifi for student room book discussion quite appealing.
    I'm sadly a minor too.. but I'm thinking james has the right idea :mob:

    Fair enough. The minors will have to stick to non-alcoholic beverages, but we all know that's no fun

    Merry Christmas everyone! I see that Heart of Darkness is still in the lead. Hopefully it'll stay that way.

      Oh my God, can you believe it's boxing day already

      So did we all have a lovely Christmas, Book Clubbers? The only thing I desperately wanted for Christmas - and tried not to hint too much about - was Stephen King's Full Dark, No Stars. So looks like I will be bargain book shopping in the new year! Not that I haven't already got about 14 books yet to read on my shelf but hey.

      Letters to a Law Student is something I wish I'd read before I applied. I recommend it.

      I got The Now Show's Book of World Records, Milton Jones' book, lots of textbooks, The Lost Diaries by Craig Brown, a Rumpole book and some others too. Not a lot of fiction this year.

      It's a fantastic book, although I can only really use the latter two parts of it since I've already applied and had offers.

      Definitely have a long list of books to buy this January, so sale shopping it is. Lovely :rolleyes:.

      Also got The Time Traveller's Wife, which will be left unread on my bookshelf until Heart of Darkness has been finished

      I'm bored. What sort of game?

      I'm meant to read that over Christmas, I don't really want to. Is there a film?

      Sigh. Pretending you've read the books after watching the film :ahee: Unfortunately no. Considering most of it is SOC/interior monologue...


      But you should totally read it. It's hypnotic.



      Rock Paper Scissors?
      Guess the First Line?
      20 Questions?
      Monopoly?

      Haha, tell me about it.

      I voted for A Thousand Splendid Suns simply because it's one of the 'unreads' on my shelf atm.
      But I've just read a short intro on Hearts of Darkness, sounds awesome!

      I suppose, I didn't think there would be one. With every passing day I am more convinced that English really isn't the degree for me. *sigh*

      How do you play monopoly over the internet? Or for that matter, Rock Paper Scissors? Am I missing something?

      I've always wondered what a degree in english is like? Where are you studying it, and what's it like.

      Simples. We both post in our spoiler and ........ oh i dunno. :emo:

      ROCK.
