    You say that like you wouldn't enjoy it.
    I'm sure I wouldn't.

    Sounds like a hard life.
    *sigh* It really is.

    This is the sort of perserverance this generation is sadly lacking. Even though he doesn't have his favourite booze, Mike, is staying with the cause and drinking port. Dedication!
    EDIT: Okay, I think that means I need to sleep :facepalm:

    Morning, gays.

    (Original post by MDEH8176)
    I've done nothing but eat and read James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room in one sitting today. Along with A Home at the End of the World it's actually made me enjoy reading gay fiction. I don't think I've read a more evocative prose in any other book and although it was sad and tragic it was never depressing. Has anybody else read a book that really stays with them after you've finished it?

    I'm off to town tomorrow to stock up on more books for holiday. I plan on buying some or all of the following:

    The Front Runner
    Boy Meets Boy
    Maurice
    The Swimming Pool Library


    Gay fiction aside, I don't really know what else to try. I've recently read The Shining and Misery so I'm not really in the mood for a psychological thriller/horror. Maybe something more light-hearted and funny. Any recommendations?
    I don't have any recommendations, but I've read Boy Meets Boy, and I really enjoyed it. Keep us updated on your list, I might start copying you some time.

    EDIT: Having said that, if you want something completely unsophisticated but mildly amusing, My Side of the Story by Will Davis is alright.

    I'm sure I wouldn't.
    Just keep telling yourself that, dearie.

    So, in order to get a computer program that draws graphs for me, I've installed three versions of Python, and a selection of up to five different modules for each. And it works! At last!

    I had my tonsils taken out when I was younger. I was given LOTS of ice cream after :awesome:

    It doesn't hurt that much

    No harm in asking I did, but they wouldn't but this was when I was like 7 so things could've changed.....

    Ah yes being put to sleep was a nightmare for me.. I struggled alot, but they eventually got that mask on me XD It was bubblegum flavoured :P

    Hey gays. I went to London today; it was good fun. I wandered around Victoria and Soho and the British Museum, among other places. :cool:

    I've also read Boy Meets Boy, I wouldn't recommend it unless you're probably age 15. I found it rubbish tbh, same with David Levithan's other novel, Wide Awake (albeit slightly better)... pretty childish writing, too. Haha, although, I think the novels are aimed at young teenagers, anyway.
