      Lol still a month left for it to arrive at the least. Getting it through a friend of a friend who's in the US on work.

  5. I'm back! Hopefully I'll pop in more frequently! Also, I finished my book :)

  8. Finished Gibbon. Humbled by the sheer size! Will read the entire unabridged version some day.

  9. Gibbon's getting harder to read towards the end. There're far too many names swishing past me right now. But I think this part needs more effort from the reader, something I have to spare at a later juncture for the reread.

  10. Gibbon my man, I salute you. I'm through volume one and almost done with volume two. This is a book everyone must read!

  11. Reading again after a long hiatus. Raymond E. Feist!

  12. Since I haven't been able to read anything for quite some time (weeks, possibly) I'm picking up Les Miserables after a long time. It's my favourite book but I'm sorry to say I've only read the abridged Penguin edition until now. Now I'm picking up the Wordsworth Classics edition (in 2 volumes). Jean Valjean lives!

  13. I am a 24 year old grandfather. (My niece gave birth to a girl this morning, hey that counts doesn't it?!)

      Aw lol the words are the same in my language.

       

      Doesn't matter though :)

      Oh, I see. Here, a Grandfather is the father of one of the parents (Dad or Mum) and a Great-uncle/Great-aunt is an uncle/aunt to the parent (if that makes sense!)

      Ah I read the first "chapter" of the first book. Got confused, I'll return to it some other day I think. For some reason, although I admire King, I have never enjoyed a book of his. Something about his writing style doesn't appeal to me. I didn't like Cujo either. I finished the book and went, "Wait, so it was just a rabid dog?"

       

  15. I envy my sister who has just discovered the joy of reading at the "young" age of 18. She hasn't read The Wizard of Oz, Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, Heidi, The Lord of the Rings, Oliver Twist, Dracula or anything else except the Harry Potter books and the Hobbit. I really do envy her. I can't wait to see her the expression on her face when she finally reads Terry Pratchett either. Lucky her. :P Yes I'm being the good elder brother by trying to tell her what to read.

      I know! I sort of wish I was her right now. Just so I could forget LOTR and reread it from the beginning. (She hasn't even watched the movies! She hardly watches good movies either. She watched Braveheart for the first time last night.)

      Thanks a lot you guys. It only hurt in the beginning because this was my first job ever. Now it's just annoying my mom because I'm home all the time. At least I'm getting some reading done for now. It's time I pay attention to my book as well, it demands to be written.

      Sorry to hear about your job. I too got fired from my first job ever. I thought the world had ended at the time but of course things srted themselves out in the end. Hope something better comes along soon. Good luck with the writing.

      Thanks Andrea..

      I'm trying to find anything right now, I was picky before but now I don't care as much.

  17. Rage apparently makes me write dark, yet pretty nice stuff!

  18. Work isn't going as planned. :( I pray for the strength to learn how to work better. Have a presentation to make on friday, kinda scared.

  19. It's a lazy and cloudy day. Feel sad for no real reason, especially when I have cause for joy.

      Let's face it, we're all bookaholics, there's no point in fighting it. I have made a thousand resolutions on the subject and broken them all.

  21. Submitted my manuscript for the first time! To HarperCollins India!

      Thank you very much! :)

  22. Typesetting a Project Gutenberg etext to ready it for printing is hard work!

  23. I'm glad I decided to rewrite my book word for word. It's at 45% now and looking gooooood! I can't wait to be done so I can submit it and start work on another story.

  24. Writing mojo is back!!

  25. It's fun to listen to an audiobook when taking a break from studying and from reading War and Peace. War is one of my favourite subjects! I wish I had discovered this much earlier so I could have taken up war studies!
