I've been into biographies lately, so I'm reading The Band That Time Forgot: The Complete Unauthorised Biography Of Guns N' Roses. I just finished one about Nirvana about a week ago. Very interesting. :)

Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami.

It's a good book but I'm not a 'book-person' so it's really taking me a while to read it... I'm more into Biographies and music related books but I bought it because I like all things Japanese and it sounded interesting.Which it actually is.

I haven't read anything in a little while, but I am usually reading Dean Koontz.. Or John Grisholm novels.... I am also trying to write a couple books myself.. a while back I wrote this really good book about Star Trek.. it included some Queen references such as the capt. was Bradley H. May, a direct decendant of Brian.. he had Brians Red Special in a glass case in his ready room.. along with a holo program of every Queen concert in which he could go in and play along.. sadly I didnt have a printer at the time and never gave it any thought until I had a virus that wiped EVERYTHING.. I was crushed..

I gave up on books when 'To Kill A Mockingbird' gave me no useful advice on how to kill a mockingbird.

I've just finished Chris Palachniuk's (the guy who wrote "Fight Club") "Diary"- f**king great!!! Thriller, but with a lot of important messages! And the style is really great- very unusual.
AWESOME read!

I just finished reading a truly wonderful book called 'Shut Yer Pus!' and I would urge all self respecting Queen fans to rush out and buy a copy today. Not only is it a wonderful read, it will make you more attractive to the opposite sex and win the lottery.
Don't delay, buy one today.

fatty.

Why would you bother? It's bound to be worse than the original, and I wouldn't give THAT more than 2/5.


It's the same text as the original..only it has little boxes going off to the side with different explanations and such.

I'm sure the thought of that will keep her awake at night.

Miss James will never get so low to be at your level, even if she would post only stupid comments for the next 10 years.
