Just finished Equal Rites as a rereading. Strange. I have enjoyed rereading alot of the DW books and found things in them I didn't the first time around.... but wasn't that impressed this time around.... still a good book mind.... but as a rereading... I was disappointed. Maybe its where my head is right now.

But as always.... laughed out loud at some wonderful lines.

Oh and Tina? I heard you all through the book when Granny was talking to the housekeeper at the uni. :lol: (your posts on occassion)

Order of the Pheonix. Thought I'd bone up on the story so far pending my visit to the film 'part deux'!

The film is the Deathly Hallows though - you know that, right?

Doesn't take me long to go through a book. I read Bill Bryson's latest in two evenings.

I cant read a book slowly, I've tried.

Hm... I got a problem... I usually cannot stick to one book at a time. Usually it's some 2-3 books + a bunch I get stuck in >.<
For some odd reason TP's books usually gets finished within reasonable time... XD

Atm. I'm on reread of Guards! Guards!
The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb (no, not the movie, this one is about statistics - extremely entertaining and fun writing)
Kabuki (comic), still short of a voume 5 >.<

Just finished A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin, which was awesome.

I got some new books from my sister yesterday, late birthday presents:
Dave Gorman vs the rest of the world by Dave Gorman, the two Stephen Fry biographies, and the latest Thursday Next book by Jasper Fforde.

Black Swan - the movie was about statistics too. The ballet was just a metafor.
