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?

ok i sneaked the da vinci code from my dad today, but is it worth reading? read the back of the book and it seems very technical!"
As a historical document :rolleyes:...nope, it's not worth reading. As a part of popular culture, yeah it is.

Huzzah!

Whatever happened to 'staylors list of excellent words', I had a mini campaign to bring back the word huzzah on it, I think.
yeah where the heck has that thread disappeared off to?:wtf?:

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.

Indeed, I'm one of those people who only gains any weight around the middle (I barely gain weight anyway tho) leaving me with fat-free stick arms - I thought I may have some record of the thinnest arms unfortunately I have seen pictures of Chiaki Kuriyama who has beaten me *hangs head in shame*

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.
