    Lately, I have become disjointed from the usual tripe on TV, regardless of watching so little of it in the first place. On top of that, I have not properly played any 360 in a while as well! With a ton of fantastic games that are waiting to be completed.

    Last night, I got in touch with my girly side, made a hot choc, marshmallows and opened up a book and stretched out on the sofa...

    Anyone into any good books at the moment?

    I'm slowly working my way through the Discworld series and am currently on Wyrd Sisters. Really enjoying Pratchett's stuff so far.

    Reaper Man - Terry Pratchett.
    My favourite of his books though it does get a bit weird(er) at the end!

    I want to read a damn book but I'm trying to muster up some form of motivation.

    Last one I read was A Game of Thrones by George R. Martin, recently made popular by the TV series.

    I'm thinking of going through Phillip K. Dick's books again.

    Iain M Banks - Surface Detail

    Nice to get a proper Space Opera from him after the abomination that was Matter. Still not a patch on The Algebrist however.

    Stay Alive, My Son, a book written by someone that survived the attrocities in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge regime. I went to Cambodia recently so I know that this is going to get grim :(

    Only been introduced to the Game Of Thrones series last night, watched the first two episodes and I'm really enjoying it, best series I've seen in a long time.

    How is the book? I haven't read a book in years but it seems right my street :)

    I enjoyed the story but I didn't shine to George's writing style.

    It's fast and down right gruesome really and it's not there to make you feel good so expect to wince a couple times. :p

    World Without End - Ken Follett. One of the reasons why I bought a Kindle for holiday reading.
