Re: What are you reading now?

just finished re-reading my Lucifer series of graphic novels and now re-visiting the sandman books, also enjoying the first Felix Castor novel by Mike Carey of Lucifer - Better the Devil, damn good read Smiling

How I find time for all this reading is a moot point in our house, I am painting / decorating to spruce up the place as we try to sell it, house hunting and job hunting whilst also trying to do a million and one other things, not least of which is running the club and getting the next magazine out to print:jawdrop:

Oh well, as they say, the devil finds work for idle hands (or something like that) so I'm off his radar for now}:)

Hooray! I paid tribute to Pooley's bench earlier this year on the way to Robert's birthday do. Did you notice a load of pirates outside the library?

Re: What are you reading now?

Finished:
Aldous Huxley - Brave new World (very good & readable for 1932)
& Retromancer by some odd bloke. (great as ever, but not the best)
About 100 pages left on Iain Banks - Transision. (enjoying this)
Not far to go on Kurt Vonnegut - Cats Cradle (not bad so far)

Finished:
Moby Dick on Audio book (ok but a but hard going)
& about half way through David Mitchell - Black Swan Green on audio book (not bad, but could have been darker)

We had one there a few years back when we donated the bench(hope you have worn it out with sitting on it) and before that when the Robster did a signing and talk,so another would be just great.
