but I have to finish it quickly as there's no wifi where I'm staying next week :shock:


What does Wi-Fi have to do with it?

I love Azumanga Daioh, though. I bought the omnibus version years ago... :D

Okay.

And it is funny, innit? While my personal favourite character is Sakaki, I find Ayumu 'Osaka' Kasuga to be the funniest. Especially that incident involving trying to wake Yukari with a frying pan...only Osaka picked up the wrong kitchen utensil...

I'm currently in the midst of reading two books on my Kindle just now. One is Hardcore Truth: The Bob Holly Story autobiography of pro wrestler Hardcore Holly and the other is Total Recall Arnold Schwarzenegger's autobiography, I'm taking a break from reading Discworld for a bit. I think I'll be sticking with the former for the time being as I've seen Arnie's book is very long indeed. :)

Reading Ben Aarranovitch Broken Homes. Very good but darker than the earlier Peter Grant books. :D

Just been looking at the Amazon reviews, and quite a few are saying it isn't as good as the first 3 - filler.

I'll still read it though. Us Londoners learn a lot about their home town in his books!!

Its good but a tad different. The first chapter just didn't sound like Peter to me but it does get into its flow. Its well worth reading though .

I've just read a bit on the Amazon website. I think when the time comes, I'll need to re-read the previous one to bring myself up to speed!!

Wilt in Nowhere was boring me so I stopped reading it.

I am now reading Ringworld by Larry Niven. I'm an egghead cause it's one book, or the first in the Ringworld series that I was looking forward to & I forgot I bought it :roll: . We'll see what I think of Strata after I read it.
