in reply to Reading material

Reading? Yep, I do that. In fact I do a lot of that. Reading is like a kind of mental masturbation, great fun and best done on your own somewhere quiet!

I find myself a nice quiet place, a jug of OJ or similar, something like Portishead on the hi-fi and curl up for a few hours with just about anything.

Here's my list...

  • Asimov's Foundation and Robot Series
  • Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit
  • Neuromancer and to a lesser extent, Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive
  • The Two Cultures by CP Snow
  • Iain M Banks' "Culture" novels
  • Iain Banks "Real World" novels, especially Complicity, The Wasp Factory, Crow Road, and The Business.
  • David Eddings' "The Beligariad" and "The Malloreon"
  • "The Lorax" by Dr. Seuss (No really, a great book!)
  • "Mindstar Rising", "A Quantum Murder" and "The Nanoflower" by Peter F. Hamilton

And for the more ecclectic reader...

  • The Gun and Its Development, WW Greener
  • Cartridges of the world, Ed. Frank Barnes

Anyway, read and enjoy.
