    How do you like your coffee?

    Mmm coffee, if I'm drinking at home I keep it simple, strong, black and sugary. If I'm venturing out I like to try and shake things up and try something new, but I guess I'll often go for a Mocha, which I get mocked for mercilessly by my boyfriend: "What? That's not coffee, it's hot chocolate!"

    Do you read in the toilet, and what reading material usually goes in there?

    It pleases me to know I am not the only one who occasionally reaches for the nearest deodorant can/bubble bath/ shampoo to read the labels, I thought it was just me!

    Peter Ackroyd: Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem

    I see I am resurrecting an old post here, but has anyone else read this? I'm reading it currently and finding it quite bizzare. I'm just over halfway through. Can anyone tell me whether the 'Analytical Engine' is massively important to the plot line? I've tried reading it a few times and it...

    Today these two arrived in the post: Birdman - Mo Hayder Wormwood - Poppy Z. Brite I haven't heard good things about them, Birdman particularly, but they're for a course, but it will be nice to give something I don't usually read a try.

    Alternating Genres?

    Because a lot of my reading at the moment is for uni, I am constantly alternating my attention between different genres. This coming semester it will be modern Gothic fiction, Bronte and Dickens, and a course called 'gender and contemporary fiction' (fay weldon, joan riley, alice munro etc.). I...
