March's book????

March's book????

No poll?

I'm disappointed. No-one to tell me what to read.

I'm currently reading Empire by Gore Vidal, which gets interesting if you can make it past the first 60 or so pages without giving up. Iain Banks - Steep Approach to Garbadale is good, and you can get the hardback for 3 quid from Fopp, at least you can in the Glasgow branch.

I just thought about buying that, its half price on Waterstones.com

I am currently reading Random Acts of Heroic Love by Danny Schienmann. I only started reading it this morning but got so hooked I read it while I was walking to the station!

The Banks is well worth the £9.

I do that too - readwalking. It can be mighty dangerous when crossing the road:

I think the whole point of Micki's post on the Boo thread was that people just came onto here just to poke fun at something else! It was supposed to be something fun and a little bit different but it turned into every other part of the forum!

It's quite sad that there is not an area on the forum that is free from all the bollocks of the rest of the forum but unfortunately some people just exist to ruffle feathers and antagonize!

how would one go about getting a copy to peruse? Obviously I know I'd have to buy one, but where has them in stock?

I've got an autographed copy - it only cost me one beer.

Tim is an excellent writer, as evidenced in small doses on this forum. I'm sure he'd give you one for just a smile :wink: :D

and come to think of it - Tim's book is the last book I have read. I feel very satisfied if I can finish a magazine article these days.
