Apart from the endless yapping, have been catching up on the reading as well – re-reread the Younguncles, reread Unprincess (my favourite is the story starring my sister), another Colfer, and finally finished Cloud Atlas yesterday. Today was supposed to be an Orhan Pamuk/Philip Roth Day, but ended up reading about 900 pages of Jeff Smith’s Bone, the one-volume edition, which I was fairly delighted to find at Landmark. The graphic novel collection there just keeps getting better and better. Also read Neil Gaimans Neverwhere and Stardust over the last few days, both excellent.
And watched The Rising, which I didnt think was particularly bad, though the men on the elephant were very irritating.
