    The only book I read today was a chaper or two of Join Me by Danny Wallace at about two this morning.

    I'd have to say that my Physics textbook beat my Biology textbook. Those books, unfortunately, was all I read today. I read Gary Kirsten's autobiography yesterday though, it was quite good.

    Textbook writers have to be literary geniuses. YYo just can't get away from them.

    Think I'll have a nip into The Rabbi's Cat in bed today. (A comic, no less.)

    I'm reading Whitman's Leaves of Grass for a class.

    I read The Rum Diary on the weekend though, which was voluntary.

    Thinking it's cool not to read is no laughing matter tbh.

    The only time I read novels is when I have to for school purposes, and even then I don't read the novel, I read sparknotes .

    Who's got time tbh, got other things to do with my life. I mean studying, playing cricket, playing basketball, chatting on msn, eating, sleeping, chillin' with friends, and watching TV is already a busy enough schedule. Who's got time to read a book, that too for fun... .

    Good book.

    Really like his stuff, and Tony Hawks as well - not sure if playing the Moldovans at Tennis was better than Round Ireland with a fridge or not.

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    A good book is better than eating, sleeping, chilling, sex, whatever.


    A great book can be a defining experience in one's life.
