    I enjoyed that book. I realised that the title of his book comes from a mention of them in Reaper Man. :)


    I'm currently reading Airframe, by Michael Crichton (author of Jurasic Park, Lost World, etc). Very interesting so far.

    Next? Hmmm, not sure. Tempted by Harry Potter, might read the Rama series by Arthur C Clarke, or try something off the list that people recommended in a couple of threads recently.

    That's a VERY funny book.

    I'm reading A Crack In Forever by Jeannie Brewer, it's really good...

    My fave books have to be the Georgia Nicholson books though, by Louise Rennison, they're amazing :D

    I am supposed to be reading Pride and Prejudice at the moment for English, but I've started reading Jane Eyre instead- which is what I should have read after Pride and Prejudice oops!! Oh well at least I'm reading one of them. One of my friends in my class doesn't have any of the books that they're meant to!!:)

    I'm in the middle ofa couple of things at present, one called Does God Play Dice by Ian Stewart - it's a maths/physics book all about chaos and the likes.

    The other "The Moonstone" by Wilkie Collins, but I'm not really getting into it, so might not finish it.
