    Just something I picked up randomly in the library the other day: Traitor's Sword by... someone I don't know. I've yet to start it, actually - I think I might go and have a read of it now. :top:

    :rolleyes: Of Mice and Men! Didn't really enjoy that book - found it a little dull and depressing haha. Not quite my cup of tea, I think - too full of hidden symbology and whatnot.

    Since for the next 15 months I'm on a waster gap "year", I intend to read at least five books a week in order to prevent lapsing into "average" intelligence. I'm about to start on Kafka.
