    Hi Guys, I have been updating my Goodreads page recently and remembered this thread (I posted in 2009 about lack of recommendations!) and was hoping to add some friends. I have added the people that listed their pages earlier in this thread - hope no one minds. :confused: Here is my page...

    No worries Will. If you are in a bookshop with some time to kill, that excellent "short story" starts on the bottom of page 121 (from paragraph: "He put away the palmtop...") until page 127. (In my copy!) Would love to hear if others have read it (involves a packet of potato crisps) and if...
