    The Third Secret by Steve Berry started that this morning. Not bad.

    You little swine, you. It was you, wasn't it, that got the copy off eBay last night. :p

    I was waiting until the last minute but got distracted by that nonce wanting us to do his coursework for him and missed on doing a bit of literary gazumping. :(

    Not a memo, but a thread where most people moaned about people posting images in non-image threads...like this one. ;)

    Let's not forget, also, that aside from it being annoying you are posting images that directly affect the bandwidth of other sites without their knowledge.

    I've read both Achebe novels now (No Longer at Ease 7/10, A Man of the People 8/10) and took notes whilst doing so. When I get time I'll review them.

    Anyway, a trip to London included getting the following:

    South of No North by Charles Bukowski
    The File on H by Ismail Kadare
    Envy by Yury Olesha

    Are you certain we aren't related? This one is on my wish list. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of Soul Mountain.

    I'd be interested in what you think of that. I have "Confessions of Zeno" by Svevo on my TBR list...
