I'm reading Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It's set during Nigeria's civil war, so I'm expecting it to be a bit shocking.

To keep my collection in top condition I own a Kindle and working my way through the entire Discworld series. I am currently about to start reading Mort again, however ever as I am on holiday in 3 weeks everything is rather hectic so plan on saving it till then and in 10 days will get through about a dozen book, while I lay in the hot sun besides the pool.

I'm currently partway through It by Stephen King, Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens, Doctor Who: Legacy by Gary Russell, and The Andromeda Breakthrough by Fred Hoyle and John Elliot.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

With an umbrella tip in his groin, hence the expression. :lol: The scream he gives in that sequence has to be heard to be believed.

I have just finished The Kraken Wakes and The Andromeda Breakthrough (the novelisation). Pretty good vintage British science fiction.

Just finished On Stranger Tides. Interesting historical fantasy, much better than the Pirates of the Caribbean film that took elements from it.
