This is completely off the topic of books and readind but I don't care. I absolutely had to post the link to Susan Boyle singing I Dreamed a Dream on Britain's Got Talent, in case there any of you have missed it. I wouldn't want you to be deprived of the pleasure of watching this video.
Susan stunned the judges and audience with her song - it's so incredible to see a regular person do so well and realise her dream. I am absolutely thrilled for her.
While you're at it, watch this video as well - it's of Paul Potts singing opera on this same show, just in a previous season. Absolutely amazing.
Seriously - both their performances are thrilling. And it's an extra treat to see the change the attitudes of both the stuck-up beautiful judges and of most of the audience.
These brought tears to me eyes and somehow made me feel hopeful about the world.
