Rik Mayall's...

...autobiography looks absolutely hilarious... ;) Think I'll wait until it comes out in paperback though...£15.99 is just too much...

On the subject of books, (and diametrically opposed to the above although tenuosly related) I have just started on this little number, missed the TV series, but thus far it's totally unputdownable (wow, that word is actually in the dictionary!) I don't read a lot of non-fiction, but with this subject (Auschwitz) it's actually hard at times to believe it isn't made up...at the same time I also bought "A year in the Merde" for full price and then found it shortly afterwards in the Red Cross charity shop for a quid...double "Doh!"> :(

Note to self - remember in future to *look* in the bookshop and buy from Amazon, it's so much cheaper...curse my impulsive wallet!

Auschwitz looks amazing, must buy it and probably Rick Mayall's too. Have you tried Tad Williams yet? Otherland will blow you away.

Yeah, The auschwitz stuff was interesting, still not as funny as Rik Mayall tho, and check simple *gasp* offline places like Sussex Stationers in Reigate and Redhill, they do most new release hardbacks for about a tenner, its where I get my Pratchetts from!
PS my blog page is dead at themoment, no idea why, but I'll keep trying to get in.

About half way through it now, it's a harrowing but absolutely facinating read...

Tenner is a really good price but it's only very rarely I go book shopping like that (mostly boot sale bargains for me!)... ;)

Not tried Tad Williams yet, is it "City of Golden Shadows" I need to read first?
