just finished reading pTerry's latest, Unseen Academicals.

Which, despite my misgivings concerning the subject matter, ie. football, is really rather good.

Now. What to read next? Had a couple of book parcels through today - one from the lovely folks at Rocky Nook, Photography Unplugged by Harald Mante, which I shall gush forth about later (it's very *very* beautiful)

and one from Borders. Finally. Ordered them a week and a half ago and the entire order has been marked 'ready to ship' since friday 6th.

Anyhoo, that parcel contained David Benioff's City of Thieves, Matt Seaton's Two Wheels, and a graphic novel, The New Brighton Archeological Society

I suggested to EB that he might enjoy the latter, and he's spent bits of today with his nose firmly stuck in the book. I shall point him at my Tintin collection next. :-)

"...Unseen Academicals. Which, despite my misgivings concerning the subject matter, ie. football, is really rather good."

I've long held that Terry always writes about the same subject - people. Football, the Postal Service, international warfare and so on are essentially painstakingly researched, elegantly devised and beautifully crafted MacGuffins.

Oh, and thanks for the tip about "Anywhere I lay my head". It shouldn't work but it does :-)

the album should be a a trainwreck, but it's oddly beautiful. Self-funded, apparently. She decided that that's what she wanted to do, could afford to do it and went off and, erm, did it.

That graphic does seem cool.

EB enjoyed it so much he's re-reading it. Hopefully he'll let me read it next. :-)
