That's no way to judge a book...
Yeah, yeah, yeah. (First impressions seem favourable though!)
The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Moshin Hamid
'Is it just me or is everything shit?' , Steve Lowe & Alan McArthur
Quite amusing! Pity though that it's 15 years old. A 2020 update would be welcome.
Joe Biden's election manifesto?
Literally the only thing I knew he campaigned on was "I won't stop fracking." Didn't hear any other policy except not being Trump.
The AP Christmas Special which Mr Geren bought me for Christmas but only gave me last night.
Just started reading Hungry by Grace Dent, a Christmas present.
Not reading, but listening to the Harry Bosch series of books.
Up to City of Bones now.
Different from the TV series obviously, but still good. The narration on the previous.one.(A.Darkness.More.Than.Night) was.dire. Not only does the narrator need to know where punctionation needs to go, he was also a bit Sham Shpade as well.
I have never seen the TV series, but I have read probably all of the Harry Bosch books. I really enjoy them.
Politically Correct Bedtime Stories by James Finn Garner. A Christmas present.
A Slip of the Keyboard by Terry Pratchett
Just finished listening to this - a sort of autobiography of the great man. Funny and sad, as well as informative - who knew that the candles in 'Feet of Clay' were based on fact?
"The Art of Unix Programming" by Eric Steven Raymond. It's one of the most readable books on a technical subject that I've come across.
Francis Wheen: How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World.
Just finished rereading Sjöwall and Wahlöö's "The Terrorists": the last and, I think, the most entertaining of the Martin Beck stories.
Wanderers - A History of Women Walking, Kerri Andrews.
