So, what are you reading at the moment? Volume 6
« on: February 22, 2013, 17:03:15 PM »

I've just started The Discworld series, at the beginning, with The Colour Of Money.....

I got as far a Mort, ( which is book 4 in the series.......of 39.   :o  ) back in the late 80s early 90s and wandered off elsewhere for some reason.

Wish me luck, I may be a while.....

Mein Kampf

(Not really, but when I posted that on another Rush forum, they locked the thread down whilst they debated whether the post should be deleted and whether I should be banned...)

Good luck with the Discworld Polis.
I used to rely on my sister to keep me up to date with it, so I'm a couple of years out of date now.

I'm currently reading Nemesis by Isaac Asimov. Found a load of Asimov books at the back of a cupboard so I've been working my way through those of late.

Really?

Still reading Clapton's auto. It's pretty dull tbh.

Played guitar,
Took drugs,
Shagged beautiful woman.
Another dull day at the coalface.

There was a signed copy of Mein Kampf that went up for sale last week....sold for £42k.


I thought this was quite cheap but apparently it was £35k more than was expected.

Just read the first few pages of Killing Floor, the first Jack Reacher story.
I'd never heard of the series until the Tom Cruise movie came out.

Bring Up The Bodies - Hilary Mantel
His visions lifelike and full of imagination,
it's strange to think they came from such a tiny head.

Just bought an E reader, so am downloading all sorts of stuff to see what it's like.
Currently the Orphans of the Helix, a short follow up to Dan Simmons' Hyperion saga.
After... well there's plenty to discover :-)

Did just finished Dan Brown's Inferno. Quite liked it, then again, I actually have Dante's Divine Comedy so it was a lot of fun thumbing through that while reading Inferno.
