Must have known you were in for a wild ride when he opens the book with a recount of commandeering his helicopter in a cocaine induced haze and landing it in his backyard at 3am.

Les (NSX on here) was telling me about that a few weeks ago - he's not much of a reader but yeah couldn't stop going on about the stories in that book.

Sounds like a fun life... :eek:

I just read Girl with dragon tattoo

I've not seen the film yet but will have to soon.

Also read the earths children series.. all 5 books, new one coming out this year apparently.

just read Joe sackey "Miura Bible"... not bad but typical US style of writing. I'm sure they think they made the bloody cars over there sometimes.

Isn't it cool? I got lots of books for Xmas/birthday but I'd rather read them on the kindle.

I've got a stack of new books next to my bed gathering dust because I have TV in there.

I'm reading Keith Richards' book, but also Parky's autobiography which is excellent. With Kindle app on the iPad and iPhone synching with the real Kindle, I'm never far from a book.

I seem to read more in January than all the other months put together though. It's the one time I forget what I do for a living. :)
