& Radio Free Albemuth by Philip K Dick

Finally started reading that not long ago and concluded that it was shelved for so long beacuse it was so badly written. Gave up.

Re: What are you reading now?

Just read my first Jasper Fforde novel.
Same sort of stuff as RR but a bit safer and more middle class. Probably a good read for anyone who prefers Pratchett to Rankin. I'll try a couple more.

Which did you read?
I've read The Eyre Affair, thought it was ok, quite a good concept (though I prob missed some of the clever literary references)
I've got some others lined up on the shelf

Yup, that was the one.
 
Every charity shop in Croydon has a copy because they did a special print run for "World Book Night" a couple of years ago.
 
I have no others, but would pick one up if I saw it for a quid or less.
