....pervesion class



by any chance did you pass with flying colours?!! ubblol ubbangel

I don't read as much as I used to but looking at Regyt's list makes me feel very shameful for only reading one book so far this year. It was the first Memoir book I've read and was by Micheal J Fox. Truly interesting and far better than I imagined it was gonna be. I'd recommend it to anyone but only if it's a bargain price. I wouldn't pay 20 for it that's for sure.

My fave author.....erm......probably Jay Stevens as he made a truly massive investigation roll like a thrilling story in Storming Heaven and fave books are by probably Hunter S Thompson. I like the way he writes, my fave stories are deffinately "a section of time in the life of" as apposed to a story of attaining goals. It's nice to read about a small section of someones life be it fiction or real.

Oh and my absolute fave thing about books, has to be, going to a second hand book stall and smelling as many as possible.....mmmmmm......slowly rotting paper mixed with dust is gooooooood......mmmmmmmmm.........

I have recently bought the Bhagavad Gita and can't wait to start reading it, but it's not very big so I'm waiting till I have a whole afternoon free so I can read it in one go.

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

you should read some Haruki Murakami then - that's what he does best.

i suggest 'the Eliphant Vanishes' - it's a collection of short storys - utterly outstanding!

the wild sheep chase is good too, if a little odd. But once you've read Robert Rankin and douglas adams nothing is ever odd again!


I had a dream that my friend had a
strong-bad pop up book,
it was the book of my dreams.
