i have just finished 'running with scissors' by augusten burroughs and i must say it was a very good read. altho slightly disturbing in places. its not like anything i have ever read before actually. i really would recommend it.

I'm reading The Himmler Brothers by Katrin Himmler.

Its quite boring to be honest, but I'm trying to plod on though it, I hate not finishing books.

sherlock holmes 15-09-2008 08:55 PM

Second Glance was brilliant.

Now onto "No time for goodbye" by Linwood Barclay.

Aidee 17-09-2008 12:59 AM

Casper_Fading 17-09-2008 01:19 AM

Aidee 17-09-2008 01:25 AM

Sure, if you send me about $5000 first. One of the same copies sold for $12,000, so you're not getting it for free.

Casper_Fading 17-09-2008 01:27 AM

Aidee 17-09-2008 01:29 AM
