I think it's crap and not really worth the effort of reading, but if you're feeling left out of conversations... maybe you should get some different friends.
Thinking about it, it's probably perfect reading in the bath material - doesn't require much effort, doesn't matter if you drop it. Actually, why does fear of dropping the book stop people reading in the bath? I mean, how often do you normally drop a book when you're reading it?
I try but my arms get quite tired of having to hold it above the water so long and my elbows are cold from being on the sides of the bath..just too awkward and I don't want to risk getting my precious books wet - which is a risk for me coz like I said my arms get tired.
I don't read particularly precious books in the bath, but then bathtime reading ought to be fairly non-intellectual anyway.
Maybe we should start a new thread entitled "staylors list of excellent words". I don't remember the 'huzzah' campaign, though. I thought I was the only person to use that word.
Anyone read 'The Haunting Of Alaizabel Cray'???
admittedly, I disliked the message of the book (themes, whatever) but I thoroughly enjoyed the gothic setting. Anyone know of any books like that (ie. set in gloomy, victorian/edwardian/etc london, that kind of thing) which are not the bartemaius trilogy.
ooh. gothic! I'm starting to like it.
We should invent waterproof books! (Yes, I know they already exist for babies but shush :P)
