    Patrick Ness:Monsters of Men:Chaos Walking

    I did a search on Patrick Ness, but nothing came up, which surprises me. I've just finished Monsters of Men and I'm feeling sad and there's no thread on it this just adds to the general upset. He may have ruined all other books for me, plus I keep thinking about puppies and getting teary...

    Interesting yet bored

    Simon Schama's A History of Britain. There's just too much of it. We did interesting things, but far too many of them and involving too many people with similar names. Or the same name but different number.

    Novels About Social/Ethical Issues

    If you need something more topical, there's 334 by Thomas Disch. It deals with overpopulation and how the government prevents the 'wrong' sort of people breeding. Not an easy read though.

    JK Rowling being sued for plagiarism

    That's because the other crazy dude is crazy. This one totally wrote Harry Potter and anyone who says otherwise is a hater.

    Moving in with someone: who's doing the moving?
