...and surely not for the last time :wink:


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:


Yeah Dave.... I said that too til I read Terry Pratchett :wink: Then I see you are reading Good Omens and I think... Man I have to read that again.

Oh and Pooh...... gold star for YOUR comment about wimmins hun :D though technically speaking.... its WIMIN! (Singular dear) :D

... Was browsing through The Book Of Lost Tales, Part I & Part II again ... So much interesting stuff by a much younger J.R.R. Tolkien (commented on by one of his sons), but also very, very sad in a way, because the "dwindling" (in many ways) of the Elves is layed out in the stories from the beginning on ...

Reading The Gift by Cecelia Ahern. Love it so far!

Am in a graphic novelly mood, have been reading an old Green Lantern collection, yesterday I finished Catwoman: Catwoman Dies, also reading Batman: False Faces, a collection of DCU stories by Brian K. Vaughn and will start Nemisis by Mark Millar today (the writer of Kick Ass) :D

Only You Can Save Mankind. :D It's years since I read that book and I'd forgotten how good it was. There's some very thoughtful stuff in there as well.

Crikey! Just finished Nemesis, read it all in one go. Imagine a guy richer than Batman becoming bored and deciding to be a super-villain. Brilliant stuff, very violent and lots of bad language but an great read with gorgeous visuals. Seek it out if you like great comics! :) Plus it only takes half an hour as it's very action heavy.

Over a third of the way through Good Omens so far, been on it for a week, been a bit slow. :)
