    Oh, I almost forgot, while looking around at used books today I saw something kinda interesting. I'm skimming the shelves and I see a set of gold books with no titles or anything, so being curious I pulled them out for a look and they were hardbacks someone had spray painted gold :eek:

    This is one I bought and have been meaning to read for a while. Have you read anything by Penman before?

    Nope. I guess whoever reads it first will have to post some thoughts.

    AquaBlue, can you not just type the name of the book like everyone else? All these graphics affect the loading time of the page. :mad:


    Anyway, my latest purchases, because I can't stop myself buying:
    • Selected Short Stories, Rabindranath Tagore
    • We, Yevgeny Zamyatin

    We all have the option turning off the images (as well as the mad 'smilies') right down at the bottom of this page, Stewart.

    I kinda enjoy an illustration now and again. :p

    I'm well aware of that. But why would I want to turn off all images? Every one else types the name of a book; we don't really need to see a cover in this thread. If you want to see the occasional illustrate then may I suggest you go and drink in Amazon to your heart's content.

    Bought "Lolita" today. See you in the Nabokov threads, I guess.
