I was surprised to get this right. Shouldn't this mean "I have a few books" (or "I have some books"). The English given emphasises the meagreness of the book collection, which is not what I thought "alcuni" meant.

Agree totally with you - anyone else got any views?

If "un po' " is right, then is "un pochino" really wrong?
