Time for a new thread as the old one was getting to be too big. :)

Okay, um, I'll be first to contribute. I read the graphic novel version of Alan Moore's story The Courtyard. Grotesque, far too short, but is still pretty good.

Finally started LOTR...60 pages in...

It's a shame books like this probably wouldn't get published nowadays...

I'm rereading A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin and hope to finish the next two books too before number 5 comes out on the 12th of July. About 2000 pages to go :)

Who knows, I have never reread a book in my (short) life, apart from bits for exams at school. But who knows. I'm not a fast reader so it's a big commitment rereading when there are always more books around the corner.

I'm already about a third of the way through my life and have read so little.... :oops:

So how many wimmin have you slept with in the third of your life? :D

Do you always have to find a new wimmin, or do you keep coming back to the wimmin you love because she makes you laugh? :P

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
