I've read shed loads of books twice. I often find that I've missed loads when I'm going through it the second time.

Have you thought of reading them properly the first time around?

Nope.

What I actually meant was there's sometimes clues etc to twists and whatnot that you miss the first time round

I hardly read anymore, I cant really pick up a random book and read. When I was younger I read the common fictions; lord of the rings, harry potter, them popular ones by phillip pullman. I find it hard to find books I think i'll be into. It's not like music where I can give an artist a try to see if I'm into them or not...which is the annoying thing. Only books I've really read that aren't mainstream was a series on king arthur called the winter king, excalibur and something else, they were good reads, and bad omens (or good omens cant remember the title) by neil gaimon and somebody else. I'll take some of your recommendations and see if I can get back into reading Smile

I'm the same. I pretty much stopped reading anything once I became addicted to the internet, which requires much less motivation to get into. Wink

And does anyone else put two spaces after the end of a sentence when typing? I seem to have got into this habit but I'm not sure how or why.

Think that's one of the symptoms of swine flu Wink

Well in that case, I've had swine flu for about six years. Smile

I don't read 'proper' books. But i've just finished reading 'The psychic adventures of Derek Acorah'. Pretty fascinating read if you are into that kind of stuff , i didn't know he's an ex professional footballer. Was at Liverpool many years ago.

Looks like no-one's been reading for a while.


Just finished The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. It's basically a pro-Atheist book that tries its best to disprove all mainstream religion. I didn't read it with the intention of setting my own current beliefs in stone, I just wanted to hear what a true Atheist had to say. I'm not really into all the Atheism stuff because I find it a little irritating when that word is thrown around and branded on people who simply don't have 'faith'. I'm no Atheist, but Dawkins makes a lot of sense to me and he touches on some really important issues in this book.

I'm always interested to hear both sides and give different opinion a chance, so I plan to read something by someone on a totally different side, maybe someone really pro-Christian or Catholic. Thing is, I'll probably end up getting really annoyed, throw the book on a fire and go back to reading something that actually makes sense. bounce

Ive read quite a bit recently particularly when I was on holiday.

Ive been reading a lot of the Discworld books and got through Thief of Time, Last Continent and Night Watch while I was on holiday.

I have read a few books since then which I dont think are going to get the best response. I borrowed Angels and Demons from my girlfriend when I was on holiday and Ive now read that and Da Vinci Code and Digital Fortress and am now half way through Deception Point. When I finish that Im finally going to get round to reading the Derren Brown book that Ive got (Tricks of the Mind) as I want to read that before I go and see his show in February (Front Row Tickets!!!!)

Enjoy Derren Brown Samba - he's meant to be excellent live.

I've just finished the Hitchiker's Guide whole trilogy of five books.

I do quite like them though the ending is rather abrupt. Douglas Adams was a funny, though random author.

Just started Bobby Robson's autobiography. Noticed it beside my Dads bed and having nothing to read on the train I stole it. Should be a good read though

Just ordered Sav's book off Amazon. I'm not usually into autobiographies, I've only read two that I've actually enjoyed, but I just had to give this one a do. bounce

How fast do you generally read? I assume you'll have it in a few days at the most, so d'ya reckon you'll have it read within the next fortnight? Because I wanna know if it's worth a read before I buy it.

I'll get through it in a few days when I finally pick it up off the nightstand. Might go get it now, actually.

Giggsy's foreword is crap, and Sav is desperate for people to believe he was better than Beckham when they were at the academy.
