Just reading stuff I see on the teevee I guess.


God, why did I think I would enjoy It? I'm a King fan but generally think the quality of his stories is inversely proportional to their length. Now I'm 400 pages (only 25%!!) into this rambling, coke-fueled mess and feel like it's too late to bail.

My memory is that all the adult stuff is just as you're saying, but all the kid stuff is awesome.

My memory is largely the opposite. *shrugs*

I didn’t know this :)

My favourite James Joyce story is ‘the dead’ in Dubliners. Just found out the house it’s set in is just down the street from my house :)
Knew it had a connection to Joyce, there’s a plaque outside I never read and the bridge right outside is called James Joyce bridge, it’s right on the Liffey, but the house is the setting to that’s story?
Cool :)

Finished up the Preacher comics. Pretty good. I can see why folks love it. Not exactly my jam but I still appreciate what it has to offer. Glad I read it.

Picked up these two today:

Nearly finished with the Franken book, I absolutely love it. 2/5 education on the finer mechanics of the recent senate; 2/5 very funny political satire; 1/5 autobiography. A breeze to read, with a lot of convenient 8-page chapters.

Bought this like a year ago and finally started it the other day. About a quarter into it and I'm really enjoying it.

Fools and Mortals - Bernard Cornwell
Heard a long interview with Bernard Cornwell and was really charmed. He has a million great stories and tells them well so got his latest one. It’s great stuff so far. Set in Shakespeare’s theatre company and from the POV of his younger brother.

Will be looking into more of his work after.
