Books are fantastic presents

I am a bookworm. I was brought up surrounded by books, and I have always be keen on reading, touching and smelling books. Although my tastes have changed over the years, I still try to read as much as possible.

I´m usually given a book or two for Christmas. And, one disastrous year, under the family Christmas tree, there was a book on trout fishing for me.  I thought, Santa, are you’re pulling my leg, did you not get my letter?

Dear Santa,
This year I have been a very good girl, and I would be over the moon and very grateful if you could give me a 1967 Aston Martin Volante. My brother, on the other hand, has been a very bad boy this year, and he deserves some maths homework or a pair of rubber gloves.

Lots of kisses to the little elf helpers.
Janette O’Carroll

P.S. I can´t stand red, so would you mind giving me a green or blue Volante?

To be keen on doing something

Keen on Cake
I’m keen on cake. Don’t touch my cake. IT’S MINE!!!

To be keen on doing something is a common expression that means you like something or someone, or you like doing something. For example:’ I’m keen on Brad Pitt.  I’m keen on carrot cake.  I’m keen on watching football.  You can also use this expression in the negative:  I’m not keen on chocolate ice cream.  I’m not keen on rollerblading.
