Books

I've only just recently started to read books at leisure. I'm 24 and only read 2 books cover to cover in my life!! (how sad is that!). Anyway, they were books by Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond.

I've also just bought ian flemings diamonds are forever book of ebay. Brand new at £2.99 with free p&p. I love bond films and have been wondering what the books are like.

Are there any recommendations of what to get? What sort of stuff is everyone else into?

It's weird how i have found myself losing a couple of hours easy when i get into a book. Guessing thats how you tell if your enjoying it!!

Ah, now I know: without remorse.

Ultimate hitchhikers guide to the galaxy if you are into word/grammar jokes and the british kind of dry humour.

I have probably 2000+ paper books and a couple of hundred MBs of Ebooks. I've read all the paper one's and lots of the Ebooks.

It's hard to recommend a good book to you as there are many great ones and it depends on your personal taste.

I would suggest going to your library and asking a librarian for some recommendations. Most are very helpful.

I hope you enjoy your Fleming, the bond books are pretty good.

Ditto on the discworld series and ender's game.

If you want E-copies of either I can set you up. I can read Ebooks quite easily, for hours on end, but a lot of people can't seem to do it. I haven't used any Ebook readers, but I wouldn't mind a decent one. My phone has a few .PDFs on it, but that's more trouble than it's worth.

Ahaha made me laugh... Only because I can relate so much.

I don't use a laptop often but I was at my girlfriends on the weekend and was catching up with the days postings on here when she was asleep and as I got closer and closer to finishing I got more and more uncomfortable. I was cooking and getting hotter by each post I read. It's like when ya bursting for the toilet and the closer you get to home and knowing you can finally go, the more and more you need to go until it seems you timed it just perfectly. If you stayed out a minute longer you would have had an accident.

Aaaaaaaaanyway yeah.... I think I left a bit of myself melted to her bed!!
