I've just been given a gift voucher for a book shop.
I'm not sure what to buy, Recommend me some thing good please.
YOU KNOW THAT DON'T YOU???
let them, I just want a recommendation, I dont read enough
do you normally read (and like)?
but I'm open to most things except si-fi/fantasy
E from Eels biography sounds pretty good, and I'm not even an Eels fan. Can't remember what it is called now though (add this to my list of things I don't know)
is going to be..............?
one of the best books I have read recently is called Written On the Body by Jeanette Winterson, it's only a couple of hundred pages and she is just so good with words. Have a look at it if they've got it, it's very serious business though. If you want something more light hearted there's one called King Dork by Frank Portman and it's very very funny, basically about the biggest geek in high school. It's the anti-Catcher In the Rye.
I just read it, it's great
go for any of the following:
margrave of the marshes by john peel
moab is my washpot by steven fry
the life and times of the thunderbolt kid by bill bryson
or cash by johnny cash.
all great reads imho.
Redemption Song, that Joe Strummer bio? A friend gave it to me but I haven't got around to reading it yet.
is worthwhile checking out.
If you like the autobiography thing, i've only read one: Marilyn Manson's. Alarmingly really well written and oftentimes exceptionally funny
