I gave up on Classic Rock when they started recycling articles from 5 years back. The emphasis they put on punk bands for a while didn't exactly help their cause either.

Me : an anthology of Robert W. Chambers' weird stories.
Next in the queue : Roger Moore - My Word Is My Bond

I have read every book the guy has written. My all time favorite author. I am currently reading his Black Staff series which is a prequel to the book you are reading.

Nice....I will have to check that out.....but I have the feeling it will be a while before I can get through the Shannara series. There
are a lot of books to go through.

I've read "The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo": it was Ok but I'm still looking for the connection between the murders and the Bible.
Reading now Sammy Hagar Bio "The Red Rocker".

Lonely Planet Ireland and Scotland books. Starting to plan my summer trip there.

Also planning on starting A Clash Of Kings by George R. R. Martin, which is the second chapter in A Song of Ice and Fire (which the show Game Of Thrones is based on)

Been wanting to start Neil Gaiman & Terry Prachetts' Good Omens for a while now, as well as Paradise Lost. Hopefully that'll happen soon.

This is the springtime of my loving-
The second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing-
So little warmth I've felt before.
It Isn't hard to feel me glowing-
I watched the fire that grew so low.

Good Omens is extremely funny - well worth reading.

Just about to read the Foundation prequel and sequel books by Asimov - didn't know they existed when I read the trilogy way back when, so filling in the gaps.

Finished My Word Is My Bond. A bit superficial.

Now, do I start Ace's bio or Mustaine's?

 Just started reading Game Of Thrones on my wife's IPad.
The book is really good so far, but reading on the IPad is weird.

Wendy reads books on her iPhone. I've tried, but I can't read large blocks of text off a screen. An iPad is slightly better, but still...
When I have a big .pdf file to read at work I usually print it out.
