  1. What's the weather like?

    I say, it is a shade warm outside...
  2. Raven's Reads

    I haven't read these since I was a teenager. I don't really have a problem with counting them, but I still think I should have read more novels than the four I have so far this year. I have started another that I am reading in parallel with these, however!
  3. Raven's Reads

    Found my old Asterix books this weekend. Feels a bit of a cheat to list them, but they are books that I have read, so...
  4. What's the weather like?

    Really feels like the first day of Sprummer* today. *It's too late for the first day of Spring, too early for the first day of Summer.
  5. Your Age?

    ^ And again.
  6. Your Age?

    ^ And again.
  7. Your Age?

    I'm older than I was the last time I posted in this thread.
  8. Raven's Reads

    Read 7 books so far this year (a point I didn't reach until October last year!). For anyone who is interested, Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World is probably one of the best Haruki Murakami I've read! I might get around to doing a review at some point but, you know, life etc.
  9. The Chronicles Of Narnia.

    *Bump* xkcd
  10. Re-reading books

    I re-read books quite regularly. Some, like The Day of the Triffids and The War of the Worlds, I have read over over ten times each over the last thirty years and I'm still finding things I missed the first time around.
  11. Star Trek Discovery

    If you think of the entire series as one story, then the opening two-parter is effectively the cold opening before the title credits roll. The second half of the series is undeniably better than the first, and the series as a whole definitely isn't perfect, but I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes next.
  12. Kindle and ebooks deals

    A Brief History of Time is £1.99 in the UK at the mo (Kindle deal of the day). You have 85 minutes to get a copy!
  13. What is the best e-book reader ?

    Amazon have a Windows Kindle program you can read to read their e-books on a PC.
  14. Book Titles A to Z

    Lords and Ladies, by Terry Pratchett
  15. Raven's Reads

    I finished re-reading Terry Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters last night. I'm definitely of the opinion that early Pratchett is more enjoyable than his later works (good though they are). There's just something about their lack of polish that makes them more enjoyable.
