  1. Beautiful Children - Charles Bock. Very good so far!
  2. I just finished "Wicked" by Gregory Maguire. It was not what I expected at all. I'm not even sure I enjoyed it whilst I read, but I couldn't put it down. It was just so... bizzare! Anyway i've now moved onto "In God We Doubt" by John Humphries.
  3. The Resurrectionist by James Bradley
  4. My favourite character used to be Death, but now I would have to say it's anything with the guards. I love Detritus!!
  5. I'm looking for some help finding out the name of this childrens book. It would have been released in 1950's or 60's. The book opens on Boxing day with a brother and sister writing their Christmas thank you notes. The siblings live in a rectory. They also have an adventure somewhere like Austria which involves a skiing scene. I believe they had been invited to visit someone in a Chateau/Castle. Help would be greatly appreciated!
  6. I can't imagine he'd sign all our books, I reckon we own all but 5 titles!! I think we're going to take the map of discworld and one book. It's only fair, I suppose, save Mr Pratchett from hand cramp
  7. I'm going to see Terry Pratchett at the Edinburgh Book Fest this August, can't wait!!! Now if I could only figure out which book to get signed....
  8. I actually forgot about that. Only Amazon purchases from now on, promise
  9. Yeah, you get the same selection I'd say. The book price is roughly the same, Play's probably a pound or two cheaper but it also offers free delivery and does so a heck of a lot faster than amazon.
  10. I'm enjoying it so far. It's very easy to read (making it perfect for the morning commute), as you really want to find out what happens next! Well, I do anyway
  11. I've started planning our meals for the month ahead. We save quite alot going to the supermarket (or as someone else pointed out buying online) once a month and buying all the food we need and then freezing it. Also, by having a monthly meal plan, we cut down on waste as the next day's meal can be using up last night's leftovers.
  12. I've never heard of this company but looking at their pricings, seems play.com are still a bit cheaper. Having said that I don't think Play offer worldwide delivery for free. Good to have an alternative incase Play don't have what I'm looking for though!
  13. Day of the Triffids - John Wyndham
  14. "Pet Semetary" is one of the earlier novels, and pretty creepy. It's a very good read!
  15. I'd have to agree with the recommendations above. "Cujo" is probably a good place to start. I'm a huge King fan, and I'd say "IT" and probably "The Stand" are his two best (IT is my all time favourite book). They're a bit long if you've given up on previous titles. Start with Cujo! Not too long, but a very good story.
