I love reading about all the books you're reading, but is there anywhere that says what you think of them? I guess on bookcrossing. I'll explore that link.

Cheers,

well this used to be a proper blog with my thoughts on books, music, films and the odd computer game, but my reviews were all a bit crap (there's only so many ways to rephrase "I thoroughly enjoyed it") so I trashed them all - now I use it as a place to list stuff.

sad, I know.
