oh brit-brit. too much too soon, my darlin.
but it's the media/bloggers reactions to her that makes me saddest of all. it's all so nauseatingly shallow and mean. total idiocy.

i may be getting a cold.

reading Strangers on a Train and going loony as a result. part of my new(ish) plan: I Read Your Favourite Authors. there are far far too many choices out there so y'all can be my guides. And the good thing is for someone who reads a lot, there's a lot i haven't read. so chances are your recommendation will be novel to me. so send 'em in.

I sort of love the fact that no matter what I do there will always be a lot I haven't read, and I don't think I'd want it any other way.

i recommend:

kureshi - buddha of suburbia
salman rushdie - midnight's children
arundhati roy - a god of small things
that's all i can think of at 4:02 am. also remember i never pleasure read anymore. unless you consider corp finance to be pleasure - which i do not.

thanksyou Clazza. And agreed, Kerry. It is very comforting and exciting to know that there will always be piles of books that I would love to read, whether I know it yet or not. Same for films and so on.

One bonus for being a vampire, I guess. All the time in the world to get books read.
