I've read Monstrous Regiment several times and never grown a third nipple :shock:

I've read RM twice, and can't for the life of me remember much about it (especially nipples), except for low-flying coffee beans.

I have a third nipple, I keep it in the bedside drawer. I bring it out for parties and special days.

Reading The Virgin Suicides by Jeffery Eugenides. Quite good.

I've been working through Jeffery Deaver's bibliography, he's now become my favourite thriller writer. I am now on about book number 15 (I do read other stuff in between them to mix things up), and every one has been completely different and unique.
My favourite so far I think has to be "The Empty Chair".

I love Harlan Coben for being basically the only thriller writer I've found who actually uses humour, but his books tend to be much more similar to each other.

Just started Mark Steel's In Town, a series of essays about various towns and cities in Britain based on his Radio 4 programme. It's very funny :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I like that one! It brought together all the "odd" bits of the previous books. :D

Read volumes 5 and 6 of Fullmetal Alchemist. Not a bad series, considering.

I've also read The Doctor: His Lives and Times. Pretty good.

I'm about a quarter of the way through Doctor Sleep, after getting it earlier today. It's not bad so far. But is it me, or does King take a very long time to get to the horror in all his books? Okay, he has a few tidbits here and there, like the prologue for this book, but he takes a while to get to the actual main horror. For example, he's already introduced the main villains of Doctor Sleep, the True Knot (a sort of vampire commune that feeds off the Shining rather than blood), but he's yet to show them doing anything really villainous yet.
