Didn't Bernard want to give the Fort a different title aswell?

Finished the 10th anniversary edition of American Gods and really enjoyed it. I'd forgotten so much of it that it was like reading a brand new book. :oops: :lol: I'm now enjoying a book of short stories called The Bread We Eat in Dreams.

I'd like to read that one again, it's a tremendous book.

I've almost finished Harbour by John Ajvide Lindqvist. I've enjoyed it very much.

Next will be Mao's Last Dancer by Li Cunxin which I'm really looking forward to.

Enjoy your books.

Just finishing Half a Yellow sun. I'll give comment once I've seen the film. Jury is out on the book.

will be re-reading the Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens today. Still worth a giggle.

Just finished a mystery called The Invisible Code. Can't remember who it's by, but it was a fun read.
