.... Along the River Kenneth there is the Oracle .

:)... best thing to do... go to that link >>> www.reading-buses.co.uk/ ............ explore the surrounding areas of Berkshire (make a detour of Slough though! ahem)

For those who haven't by now got my wicked sense of humor.... Reading is a cool place to work and people here are very young as there are lots of university campus here... and a river runs right through it that holds the ORACLE (all wise, all knowing one hihi) for those with credit cards and materialistic goals ;).... it's a shopping centre heaven.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:hmmmmmmmmmmmm......
  • Cons:ahhhhmmmmmmmmmmm ............

    Great and interesting place, and I hope one day I get to walk along those river paths. We have a few like that along our rivers here.

    Good old Wagamama: very healthy. I lived briefly in Reading. It's claim to fame, apart from biscuits, is that it is the most average town in Britain and not many people want to know that!

    I loved the Reading gourmet and Reading sights table mats. How do I get to "But is it art?"'s web site?

    Love the otter - I'm still not sure about Reading (I used to live down the M4 a bit, so know it well)Leyle

    Lucky you!! That's a wonderful picture of the otter. My whole idea of Reading has changed after reading your page.

    Ok Nutella's not so bad. It's still brown and sticky.. mm sorry. You can still do comedy teeth missing with it too! High altitude training eh? I might spend 1 month in snowdon cafe living on guiness and pies - is that similar? :)

    This reading page of yours is very easy to read. Except the meaning of "fatally sober"?
