/ Two books in one week.. I'm on a roll
There isn't much of a plot and the book is mostly pictures, diagrams and maps but I'm excited. :-)
Any Bookworms found or received any gems this year to fill the gaps between their ears?
I just went through Neil Gaimans "Fragile Things". Love it. Found my favourite short story from it on line a little while ago to send to a mate.
Sadly I am not allowed sharp things to play with or felt tip pens for similar obvious reasons.
If you don't mind 1930s stuff:
Damon Runyan - On Broadway. Scurrilous short stories about booze, dough and dolls, most amusing.
Ayn Rand - We the Living. Individualistic novel set against the crushing regime in post-revolution Russia. Educational as well as rollercoasting.
