I started reading Mao's Last Dancer but had a chance conversation with a co-worker about TP and have decided to re-read some Discworld books, starting with Small Gods.

I'm most of the way through it now and it's still really good! I've skipped a couple of the poems, only because I'm not a huge fan of poems. I read a story last night that I think is my favorite so far, Twenty Five Facts About Santa Claus. Loved it!

I recently read The Secret Scriptures by Sebastian Barry. What a lovely, lovely, lovely writer!! Generally speaking I'm not that fond of Irish authors, I suppose it's the over-familiar thing, but this guy blew me away.

I'm between books right now but I've heard some good things about this Pratchett feller so I might try one of his books

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Once I get the motivation to start reading again, a priority are two stories by Nev Fountain in the Mervyn Stone series. One is a normal novel, DVD Extras Include: Murder. The other, believe it or not, is Twitterature: a novella published over Twitter in character as Mervyn Stone and republished on Nev Fountain's Wordpress account.

I've been reading the book of dead days by Marcus Sedgwick
and I've just been googling it to get the author name right and it has a sequel
called the long flight down so that has jumped almost to the top of my shopping list

The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl by Belle de Jour

I probably wouldn't have picked it up but it was £1 in the charity shop and it's surprisingly good :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

There was a article in one of the papers a couple of years ago with her.

I'm almost finished with The Wicked by Douglas Nicholas and it's really good! I'm going to try some of his other books.
