anyway, stocked up the tablet with books for the *snowed in xmas*. in retrospect, I may need to find a few more lighter page turners as this collection doesn't look too cheery:
- No Regrets: writings on Scott Walker [but at least it gives me yet another reason to play more of his genius]
- John Dies in the End
- The Golem [yeah the central/eastern european classic, felt I should read it at some point...]
- Danubia [the lighter read, really enjoyed Simon's other book, Germania]
- Creation: the origin of Life/The future of life [oohhh Science!]
I think i've still got a couple of unread Robert Rankin's lying around which will rock the lighter read stuff.
The downside to those heavy books is that them, and booze, mix poorly. Xmas and booze mix well, and there-in lies a problem...
