I have just finished Choke by Chuck Palahniuk - the author of Fight Club. it wasn't quite as good as Fight Club but it was still a very good read.

Now i am reading The Sicilian - the sequel to The Godfather by Mario Puzo.

I'm normally far to lazy to read books and am very picky about what I read but I just finished "1984" by George Orwell which was great.

I tend mainly, to read when I'm on the bog,.. I can't shit unless I take my mind off the actual act,..
When I have to have a dump in a friends house, I have to read the bleach/shampoo/anusol, bottles and tubes,.. it's amazing what they put in them isn't it,.. :high:

I tend not to read a great deal now, unless it grips me I'm too drunk by the time I'm in the mood. I did read 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' recently, and found it very good. It seemed to be some educated person's version, and had bits at the back mentioning other stuff you should read or whatnot related to it, and Withnail was mentioned as, I think 'the film closest to the book albeit in a completely different way'.
They found him wandering round Regent's Park with a cheap bottle of sherry...

And like a fool I mixed them and it strangled up my mind, and now people just get uglier and I have no sense of time...

I just finished reading "Sharpe's Challenge" by Bernard Cornwell and I was not impressed this time around. ;(

Next is "Breaking the Line" about Nelson and Emma. Yay!

He's called Johnny Rotten, John Lydon is just some middle-aged vaguely chubby guy.

yes i know but i dont think it would be suitable for a 54 year old to be called johnny rotten , mr john lydon seems a lot more of rest home / post office based life form

The mentions of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and 1984 made me smile.

I just finished Satori in Paris & Pic by Jack Kerouac and am moving on to some book given to me by a friend.
I feel like a pig shat in my head.
