I'm sure it would be upsetting because it's the story of a footballer who killed himself. Not sure if I want to read it.

I picked up Gary Abbletts autobiography a few months ago to buy but the picture was really sad. These lads, especially Gary Abblett, were people I looked upto and to read such sad stories about them, to read about a world not usually associated with football would be hard for me I reckon.

So I'm reading The Last Policeman. Recommended by SFX, a few chapters in reading in the middle of the night and it's pretty decent. Should have it finished by the weekend.

Anyone fancy a book club?

Going Bovine is an entertaining read...but the ending is..weird.

Pretty sure there are a few WoT fans here -- the prologue to aMoL is available for purchase (ebook obvs) on Amazon and some other places -- you can get a DRM-free copy on Dragonmount as well. Just FYI.

Picked up a 'stack' of books from manybooks:

Robert J. Martin - Beyond Pandora
PKD - The Variable Man
Drew Wagar - Ascension
Edgar Rice Burroughs - At the Earth's Core

and more. Best of all, they're free.

I couldn't bring myself to buy it for about a tenner, so I ended up getting it off the Points2Shop website using the iPad app downloads points.

Going to sit down and read it soon, really timid.

Picked up Dodger, The new Terry Pratchett, from Costco today. Anybody reading it??

Bret Easton Ellis is by far my favorite writer right now.

Finished 'A Dance with Dragons' today. Very Good book, easily better than Crows. Although most of the book feels like a build up, it was still constantly interesting to read. the only problem i had with it was the ending which was a bit underwhelming, and the lack of any real closure for any storyline was a tad disappointing.

Started reading a couple of Poirot Investigations today. Good stuff.

I'm still a little pissed at the ending of Dance with Dragons. Not with the stuff that happened, just what didn't.

I am reading The Shining by Stephen King, Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton and Phantoms by Dean Koontz. All three of them are great.

Yesterday I saw a woman in public reading Fifty Shades of Grey. Can anyone tell me what is so great about the latter book? It's all I see on The New York Times Best Seller list and Amazon Best Sellers.

It's filthy apparently. I have read a few paragraphs posted about on the internet and it's crude as anything. Apparently there's barely a story but lots and lots of sex.

It's basically what a woman would consider porn if a man was reading it.

The Shining and Jurassic Park are good books man, I've never read any Koontz though.
