A week ago, I started reading "Kokoda"..... and then the plane crashed....

and 2 days before a certain GT4 got liberace'd, I was reading up on GT4's....

I'm scared to read much now  :scared:

like steven wright - he played poker with a deck of tarot cards, got a full house and John stamos died.

he also said "you can't have everything...."























"where would you put it?"

Ok, "Kokoda" was like the track... a very slow start, followed by a long hard trudge, but ultimately, the book was very satisfying, educational and informative.

I now have an even stronger respect  and understanding for those that fought there. True heroes.

I then read "Fangio, the story behind the Legend". Was also very good. learned a lot... didn't reealise he was 39 before he even raced F1! There's hope for Schuey yet.

Just finished reading the Lance Armstrong "It's not about the bike".... truly inspiring warts and all account of his life and character.

Got the new Dan Brown to start now...

Dan Brown "Lost symbol" was "un put down able"... I get absorbed in his writing... he has this clever way of making totally ridiculous things sound completely plausible using real locations and history.

Then I just finished some stoopid girlie thing "The french gardener", just had it there and was waiting for wife to finish her book, which was "The slap"

anyway, French Gardener was actually ok... for a sloshy girlie book.

The slap looks good.. starting it now....

Unless I'm Very Much Mistaken - Murray Walker's Autobiography is a good read.

Chuck Palahniuk's my favourite author.

If you have a little time, this is a great read... but beware, apparently hundreds of people have fainted at book tours when this story was read out.  :p

Stupidiest most uneventful ending of a book in all of the history of time.

maybe yeah, but the other 99.9% of the book was hugely engrossing.

It was great to switch your mind off from everyday things....
