That's a coincidence, just brought this last night but on CD... something to listen in the car on the way to work or perhaps this is my cover for the fact that I'm illiterate.  :p

Where'd Ash's comment go? :D

Readings on hold at the moment as it's uni exam time but looking at getting in to Possum Bournes biography starting Thursday. Read Hamster's crash book a few months back, pretty cool.

The Possum Bourne book is superb... it actually made me cry. Pathetic I know.  :waah:

Barry was also good, in many ways similar to Possum book actually... but it wasn't edited that well IMO.... it seemed a bit disjointed, and had present and past tenses mixed up in places. Still a good read though.   :thumbsup:

Currently reading "Parky" ... UK journo/TV chat show host Michael parkinson....

Wife just started reading 365 Nights....... I was 39 a few months ago.... google it  :thumbsup: :eek: :scratchchin: :tilt: :thumbsup:

Forgot to post...

Also just read "My Steve" by Terri Irwin...

Really enjoyed it, and it did nothing to quash my hunch that his body has been fed to the crocs  :scratchchin:

Parky was good. Made as much of being a yorkshireman into cricket as he could.... Most of the interesting stuff was about his chat show guests though...

Glad I read it though.

Now reading "A Lion called Christian".... about the "youtube reunion" phenomenon Lion story.....

Book originally written in 70's, since youtube has been re written and updated.

Amazing, that the Lion was bought from Harrods dept store in London.... they used to sell wild animals, until legistlation in early 70's stopped the legal trade.

Lion was kept in furniture shop in Chelsea!
