  1. Raven's Reads

    ^ Thanks! I've read two whole books this month! *smug face*
  2. He was in Chichester this afternoon, doing a signing in Waterstones. I found out about it as it started. Whilst at work. Arse.
  3. Picked up a copy of Ben Aaronovitch's new novella, The Furthest Station this afternoon. I think it is only the second book I've bought this year!
  4. Star Trek Discovery

    Not a lot, evidently!
  5. Star Trek Discovery

    Well, it's out - what do people think?!
  6. Raven's Reads

    Five whole books this year. I'm about ready for a lie down...
  7. *bump* Local booksellers pay 91p tax per £100 turnover. Amazon only pays 8p The hidden cost of buying cheap books - the people you are buying them from aren't contributing fairly to society...
  8. Colouring for Adults

    Have you tried Letraset Promarkers? They colour evenly, but may bleed through - not sure!
  9. Cricket

    Looks like they've all gone off script...
  10. Kindle and ebooks deals

    Cheers Chesil, bought two of them when I saw that!
  11. Cricket

    I don't believe there will be much change. West Indies cricket is in a bit of a state at the moment, due to a number of reasons (and most of them off the pitch). This is a very young team with very little experience to draw on and I don't think they have the ability to step up their game. Whilst it's fun to watch Cook and Root smash balls around the park and Anderson & Broad up their stats, if the resistance is as week as it was last week it's just embarrassing...
  12. Cricket

    That wasn't a good game; the West Indies didn't turn up. Not good preparation for an away Ashes series...
  13. Things in books that annoy you

    Maps in fantasy books. And especially maps in fantasy books by authors who have no idea about geography or town planning. And extra especially the authors who start talking about places that aren't on their flippin' maps
  14. Started reading Small Gods by Terry Pratchett this week. It is the one Discworld book I missed first time around and, for some reason, never got around to until now. 50 or so pages in, and enjoying it so far. A much easier read than his later novels.
