Only for political reasons

I can't make it out the writing is too small, does it say The Holy Duran ? if it has anything to do with Simon Le Bon then it's a no from me

He dies at the end.

James Patterson's The mid wife murders.

Reading a lot helps me keep my mind off the horrors that are going on right now.

Yeah, Im finding that audio books are really helping me escape lately.

Im still working my way through a super long book on the Grateful Dead. And Star Wars audio books are fun because they have all the sound effects, music and alien voices.

my god, is "the name of the rose" ever a slog to get through.

I'm an experienced reader, but this book kicks my ass.

And with experienced reader you surely mean the entire Suske en Wiske catalogue?

I read both, but I prefer Urbanus... I think I still have several of his comics lying around somewhere at home, I loved them as a kid.

Totally, it was quite unconventional but in a good way. I don't think the character ''het negerke'' would have much of a chance nowadays.

I got a book stand and I am loving it!! It mainly stays in my breakfast nook, and I might even get another one or two. Definitely one more for cookbooks in the kitchen.

Just finished Birds of America by Lorrie Moore. It's a collection of short fiction focusing on the mysteries of life. It's a very easy read, engaging and if you like dark humour, this is for you.

The God Delusion

Worst book I have ever read in my entire life. I barely got through it (skim read the last few pages). Pretentious, arrogant, biased drivel. 

Biased? Oh the irony. :lol:

Killing for Company: The Case of Dennis Nilsen (1985) by Brian Masters.

What the new three-part ITV drama, Des starring David Tennant, is based on * - Brian Masters is indeed a prominent character in the drama. 1983-5, Masters wrote this biography through multiple interviews, even receiving manuscripts from the serial killer. It is biographic, psycho-analytical, poetic-romantic and horrendously disturbing in equal measure. 

* Indeed, recently reissued in accordance.
