I don`t read them like Nero Wolf does. The books are just in different places. One is in the computer. One I go and sit and read in the library. And the compulsory one I don`t want to read so much.
I quess that the compulsory one is going to be the last one I finish. :lol:

Well, it's from Harry, it might be gassy holes.

If it's a book set in Ankh-Morpork, it might be nasty gnolls. :D

I just finished reading The Black House by Peter May. Kind of slow going, but a good mystery. Set on one of the Hebrides islands. Huge bonus points to the author for putting the Gaelic pronunciations in the front of the book! :D

I've started reading The Time of My Life by Cecelia Ahern. I love her books! This one is good so far too.

I haven't read too many of his books, but really didn't think a lot about The Antipope. Had I read that one first, I probably wouldn't have bothered with any others.

Polley and O'Malley make me laugh, but there again I somtimes used to drink in the Flying Swan AKA as the Bricklayers Arms where they were modeled on some of the pubs regulars, it was only over the town's borders from where I used to live and the rock club was just a few minutes walk away.

The sketchbooks of Vincent Van Gogh. A replica of his surviving sketchbooks and a book giving a description and history of each page. :D

Narbonic Book One, the Perfect Collection, by Shaenon K. Garrity. Cartoon story of a mad scientist, well, several, really. Robots, monsters, romance...and obscure allusions! Available free online (in the Director's Cut!), but I was loaned the book and I do like an actual book. Of course it's out of print (as are the other five volumes).
