Currently reading Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman. I didn't really think I would enjoy it but I must agree with one of the reviews: "Bizarre, bonkers, rather brilliant." The story is colourful, funny, and above all, has kept me eager to keep reading. And gives me a fond reminder of the stories I read as a kid, of Brear Rabbit and the tar baby. Smiles all round.

Well bugger me. A blast from the past, if ever there was one.

Chuch Palahniuk's new book is out next week and early reviews indicate it's perhaps the best thing he's ever written, and a return to form after the pooptastic Haunted. Already pre-ordered my copy.

Have just given up on The Interpretation of Murder. I'd renewed it about five times. It's not that it was a bad book. It just wasn't good enough that I felt compelled to finish it.

I have a stack of books to choose from now. Lolita, The Big Sur, Hell's Angels to name but a few. Not sure where to start.

Thought this might interest some of you- The Complete Calvin and Hobbes for 40.

I love Lolita.


Hmmm... that didn't sound right.

Picked up a paperback edition of the Watchmen collection, because it's high time I quit procrastinating and get down to reading it.

I warn you- it weighs a ton. No idea how much it would cost to ship to the US, but I'm guessing a lot. Although it isn't as heavy as this beast which also graces our bookshelves.

Me too - squee! Actually, that'd make an ace present for one of my friends. If she doesn't already have it.

I was just looking at that, and wondering if I needed to eat again this month . . .

What Happens Now by Jeremy Dyson

It was okay although I was a bit disappointed. I really love Jeremy's screenplays, but his prose always leaves me a bit flat. Nothing really happens until the very end except lots of teen angst which was bad enough to live through, I don't really need to read about it. It does pick up in the end in everyway, but it's just a little too late for me.

When I was younger, about 10 years ago, my grandparents got me two books for my birthday. They were books 4 and 5 of the "Star Wars: Young Jedi Knights" series, by Kevin J. Anderson. I remember really enjoying them, and I still have them though they've been untouched for years.

On a whim one evening when they popped into my head, I looked on Amazon and lo: all 6 books in 2 volumes, for a mere 7 together! So they'll be with me in a week or so, and I'll finally get to read the events leading to and after them. I'm really excited.

There have been a fair number of instances lately in which something that hasn't been seen or heard in a while is mentioned (Volvo estates, for example) and then is suddenly all around me.

During SONY, some of us were talking about Jasper Fforde and I mentioned that I knew he had a new book coming soon, but that I hadn't seen an advance copy, which was unusual. Well, one was sent to me today and I can't wait to start reading it. Review to come.

Anyone? Anyone at all seen this book anywhere that I can buy it. THIS edition, so don't say Amazon because they just share a common ISBN number and have different covers.
