Started Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, just cause the movie is coming out next week and I can see myself enjoying it more if I can nit pick and say "It was better in the book!"

Finished reading Pirate Cinema by Cory Doctorow during the weekend. Very good read.

The story is based around a teenager that gets his families internet blocked for a year because he downloaded so much movie footage from the web. As a result he runs away from home to live in a squat in London.

The story is an examination of big business lobbying government to punish people that may be using copyrighted material for non-commerical creative endeavours.

I'd recommend the book if the above looks like something you'd be interested in.

Reading 'The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch' by Philip K. Dick at the minute.

Anyone know when the next Game of Thrones book will be out?

I just finished Good Omens. Amazing. Hilarious. Crowley and Aziraphale are the perfect double act. Loved it.

I'm about to start American Gods by Neil Gaiman. It'll be the first book of his I've read. Looking forward to it.

Not yet. There are at least two books that he has to finish but working on the TV version delayed him somewhat.


Going to get started on The Passage (by Justin Cronin) soon, since it came highly recommended as a different story about vamps and their interaction with the human race.

keep a notepad handy so you remember the things you want to look up. I have read it five times and still find new things I want to check out.

Do you mean Anansi Boys, the Shadow short story in Fragile Things or has he actually started/finished the direct sequel he said he was going to write and nobody told me?


Currently reading Robert A Heinlein's JOB: A comedy of justice. First time I've read one of his books, it's a comedy about travelling through alternative universes. It's been quite entertaining so far.
