    I sure hope that lady is still turning out books... or you're soon going to run out of stories to read.;)

    Oh, she wrote more than 70 novels (and is still alive, although quite old) so I'm good for a while :p I also read other stuff, you know!

    Yeah, but all the books you read are by authors with weird last names that have way too many vowels in them.;)

    You've probably even read 'The Name of the Rose' by Umberto Eco... if not, you ought to. It's a dark mystery but also very intellectual.

    Of course I did! A couple of times. One of my favourite books ever <3
    Vowels? Maybe the Hispanic ones, the Polish names usually have too many consonants :p

    Eph, I don't suppose you've read Paul Kelly's the Lost Brigade? As a totally impartial, disinterested observer, I personally felt that Kelly's work was on a par with Tolstoy, Hugo and (at this rate) Kafka... ;)

    I haven't read it, Eust, but I gather from your description that you thoroughly recommend it. What's it about? :)

    This damnable trigonometry book. Use the law of cosines for the thirtieth time sure sure sure. Fun at first but it is an old story now.

    Between studies and the games I need to beat I wish I had more downtime to read. I still have to finish the book on Techno music history, the second discworld book, I was going to start A Game of Thrones, and then I wanted to read some of those short stories by Lovecraft.

    *sigh*

    Having read Kelly's book about MINOTAURS, one of which is called EUSTACE, in which figures a LOST BRIGADE. (do you get my point Eph? Eustace is Phil Kelly), which I loved (although it needs a good read-through with a pad of paper or computer as well, because there are lots of typos, quite a few spelling mistakes and a few points that I thought contradicted each other [that might just be my memory failing me in my old age of 512]), but on the whole I really liked it.

    I have now moved onto Lorna Doone, which is really, really good.
