GUEST,Fibula Mattock Books: What have you been caught reading ? (57* d) RE: BS: What have you been caught reading ? 27 Feb 01


Wow - I share the same taste in books as many others here. Not that it surprises me - nothing about Mudcat surprises me anymore - and I'll read anything anyway. But I love Susan Cooper, Ursula LeGuin, Mary Stewart, the "Hounds of the Morrigan", and I've read "Guns, Germs and Steel". I've just finished a couple of crime novels (Sue Grafton and Janet Evanovich) and I've read all the novels I bought on Sunday. I'm off to France for a couple of days (working, not holiday) on Thursday and had intended to take those books with me. Now I'll have to buy more. I'm reading my French dictionary as well.
I'm also re-reading (for the nth time) Eureka Street by Robert McLiam Wilson. It is possibly one of the funniest, cleverest, moving books ever. It's set in Belfast and is about how f*cked up, amazing and wonderful it is. Anyone who knows Belfast should buy it, read it, and fall in love with the place all over again.
I'm also reading a paper entitled "The Visible Difference Predictor: applications to global illumination problems". It's not in any way interesting, so I've been reading it for the past 3 months, and it's only 12 pages long. If anyone has read this paper and would like to give me a synopsis of the main facts, I'll pay big money.
