Seen as the watching and listening threads have returned I figured that reading should complete the trinity.

I'll start off with the Joe Haldeman omnibus Peace and War. 2 Parts down - Forever War is very good, Forever Free is very strange and Forever Peace is still to be read.

Just re-reading 'From Aberystwyth with Love' by Malcolm Pryce, very few books have me literally laughing out loud like an idiot but this manages it rather well, also some pretty emotional moments to tug at the heart strings.

Always reminds me a lot of Dirk Gently but not so much as to make any of it seem a Douglas Adams ripoff, it's very different.

As well as this I'd also highly recommend: 'Last Tango in Aberystwyth' also by Malcolm Pryce, 'The Day Aberystwyth Stood Still' also looks very promising and should be out soon :)

I've been so frustrated of late - I get very little time to read, and when I am at the mo I'm working through a backlog of comics and fanzines. I've a stack of interesting books waiting for me, mainly making me feel guilty.

Very nearly through the last years worth of Judge Dredd Megazine at the moment.

I am currently reading the Walking Dead Graphic Novels... as well as all of the Uni books that I have to read which consist of Music Business and Teaching Music in Secondary Schools... FUN!! I read ALL of the Harry Potter books at least once a year, I once read the Twilight books and thought I was a homosexual for a while because I loved it, but then I met my current girlfriend and thankfully, everything is back to normal.
