The Day After Tomorrow by Whitley Strieber. Found it on a second hand bookstall when buying some Michael Crichton novels so added it to the pile. Love the film and the book's not bad.

I got my book signed by Nick Cave last night... such a wonderful man. I loved the book, too - I hope you enjoy it! And, I'm going to Warwick too! Whereabouts are you staying?
Thats pretty cool! Did you have much of a chat or anything? I finished it today and really enjoyed it - quite different to what I usually go for!
I'm staying in Rootes - how about you? Are you going on Sat/Sun - I'm half dreading it/can't wait!

Well, I was about the 300th guy in the queue, and there must have been another 200 to go - so there wasn't much room for a chat. Did have a small friendly 'how are you', 'loved your book' etc. Yeah, it's really unusual, but I was kind of expecting that.

I'm staying in Westwood, Rootes was my first choice though! I'm going on Saturday and I can't wait to go, though I suppose I am nervous - just hope I get on with flatmates and that I find some nice friends! When are you going?

I had no choice but to read it as I'm doing it for A2 Literature!:p:
Others started it before me and were like 'We don't understand it!' and I have to agree some bits are confuzzling but most of the actual plot was fineee, and surprisingly I liked it, yes. My librarian at school was puzzled at my liking of it and said she'll read it again :p: But yeah I find it OK tbh .. maybe that'll change!:p:
I was frantically reading it last night like a mad woman - half the whole bloody book as I had English today but didn't even need it to be finished but never mind.

Cool on Emma, is that an Austen? I'm dying to read all that century's novels After a levels I shall be reading all of Austen's I hope:p: I did start on Jane Eyre a few weeks before school in the summer but obviously don't have time to read it now as I have other books to concentrate on !

yep, Jane Austen. I prefer it to pride and prejudice actually though I'm not very far in. I'm slowly gonna work through them all as well. I wish I'd taken English A Level tbh... and done an english degree too, ho hum. I might do one when I retire. :yep:

Finished Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. Watched the film on a recent transalantic flight and was pleasantly suprised. I had thought it was just a Sex and the City clone, but the film was in many ways a reverse of that disappointing brand dropping fest by ultimately questioning that sort of lifestyle. So i decided to get the book out. Boy, it makes
a huge difference being set in Britain. There are some genuine laugh out loud moments.

Next book is Oryx and Crake by Margaret Attwood :love:

Just finished Lolita
I'm planning on reading that soon, did you like it?


Demons is so utterly boring - so far. Dostoyevsky can be so hit and miss. Slightly away from the point, but I'm proud to be turning my friends into my literary protégées - one used to never read much, another used to read stuff like Twilight, and another used to...well, I dunno. I've got them into The Picture of Dorian Gray, War and Peace and The Bell Jar respectively.

I loved it Though the second half was a bit confusing, everything else made up for it. Well worth reading. :yep:
