    Why should it be named after the alethiometer anyway? Seems like they are only doing it to make all the titles matching in that they are about key objects. Subtle Knife, Amber Spyglass (though will this be subject to change?). Frankly I won't be that fussed as long as it has 'His Dark Materials Trilogy:' somewhere in the title, though I did like the Northern Lights name.

    I wasn't saying it should be named after that; I'm just saying that I think they should've kept the original title, tis all.

    Northern Lights > The other two as a title. Don't care much for it though.

    i read apparently the reason it was changed from northern lights was because too many americans didnt actually know what the northern lights were!! if thats true then its just pathetic....

    anyway, I just finished reading the eye of the world by Robert Jordan, pretty decent fare so far tbh, got through 800+ pages in about 2 weeks so must have enjoyed it.

    I tried to read A Tale of Two Cities this afternoon. Got eight pages in then fell asleep for a good four hours. No joke. I won't give up on it though.

    Don't give up mate. It will be a far, far better thing that you do, than you have ever done.

    And it was a far, far better rest that you went to, than you have ever known. ...

    Got half-way through before my exams struck last summer and I lost track. Plan to restart in new year.

    180 pages of The Brothers Karamazov left... feel like such a marathon.
