Hello there all. I myself am currently reading a Discworld novel, Interesting Times. This is one where that thickwit Rincewind the Wizzard takes centre stage.

See if you can spot a theme -

In the bedroom I'm reading "Lisey's Story" by Stephen King, it's a supernatural drama about the widow of a famous writer.

In the loungeroom I have "Just after sunset" by Stephen King on the go, it's a short story collection.

In the car, I'm rereading "Cell" by Stephen King, about a mobile phone virus that turns people into a zombie like state.

In the bathroom, I have "From a Buick 8" by Stephen King.

But I don't only read Stephen King, I like Anne Rice and I really love Matthew Reilly novels.

Don't worry though, I've read all the classics too, mostly in my teens and younger. I remember reading Moby **** on a visit to my aunt's when I was about 7.

I used to be a huge King fan, but I haven't enjoyed a novel of his since From a Buick 8. I just read a book about the rise and fall of heavy metal.

Whilst I enjoy all Discworld books, those involving Rincewind are my least favorite. I'm really enjoying the more recent ones (The Truth, Going Postal and Making Money) and love those involving the City Watch. Mort is still my all time favorite though.

Oh dear me, I own that one, too. Rincewind is such a hopeless sook, isn't he? If you were in a tight corner on the Discworld, then he would be the last person whom you would EVER want to turn to, much less share it with. He would long to rack off quicksmart -- which of course makes the novels all the more appealing! To me, anyway! [Big Grin]

It's great to see so many Discworld fans. When did you first hear about them, and what is your favourite?

I have my Brother to thank for getting me into Discworld. I borrowed a copy of "The Colour of Magic" and never looked back. That was about 15 years ago, and I still enjoy re-reading through the whole series. I'd have to say that my favourite is probably "Guards! Guards!" -- the very first City watch book, and major influence on the 1st computer game.

Anybody reading this who's thinking: "What the hell is Discworld!!??!!" -- Do yourself a favour and check them out.

What actually caused me to start purchasing the Discworld novels is a fictional characters book that I own: Imaginary People (Second Edition) by David Pringle. This lists famous fictional characters from television, films, novels and so forth with over 1,400 invented identities featured. Just for the record, the first Discworld novel that I ever read was The Colour of Magic.

I am presently reading Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis. I bought this at the Bendigo Library for just 50 cents.

I just started L.A. Confidential by James Ellroy. I've never read any of his books. Anyone read this or any other Ellroy novels?
I like the show Murder by the Book on Trutv (formerly CourtTv) and he hosted one episode. The story was about the true life murder of his mother when he was a young child, and as far as I know, it is still unsolved.

More interesting "technical" papers. This time, HA (High Availability) clustering with fail-over...

Wait, I did manage to read several off-road magazines over the weekend. Four Wheeler, JP Magazine, Fourwheel and Offroad. This weekend maybe some Blackbelt magazine and Inside Kung Fu magazine.

I have a stack of stuff to get through!!!

I saw the Harry Potter movie the other day. I think it was totally unrealistic. I mean, a ginger kid at school - with two friends?

I'm at the moment reading yet another Discworld novel, Witches Abroad. Here Granny Weatherwax leads the trio -- herself, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick -- to put a stop to a servant girl's efforts to marry a prince.

Finally finished Slash. Good book. Right now I'm reading Black Hills by Nora Roberts. I'm trying to decide if I wanna break down and buy Fieldy's (from Korn) book.

I may have to pick up Slash, pettyfan. I have read the Motley Crue bio, a GnR bio, and Anthony Kiedis' bio, which was really hard to take at times because of the huge amount of drug abuse. I haven't had much time for reading lately, maybe I oughtta take time and relax and sit out on the patio tonight with the James Elroy novel I started.

I think you should, Pitt. I don't remember if you said whether you'd read the Heroin Diaries or not, but it's really good too.
