Having been involved with and enjoying this thread on our favourite books, I find it really interesting the variety of books we all seem to enjoy, but one thing I noticed has got me thinking, and I hope we can have some sensible responses to this:
I am absolutely rubbish with numbers, didn't do well at Maths at all at school and still struggle now, but I did pretty well in English throughout my academic career. And I always thought/assumed that people who were good with numbers weren't so keen on words and vice versa. By the looks of some of the reading that's been going on, and by the way some of your articulate youselves, my theory seems to have been shot out the window!
Can anyone shed any light on this? Want to share your views? Am I totally wrong, and therefore it's just (unlucky) co-incidence that I can't do basic math?
Keen to hear what you number types have to say about this :)
