Do you remember any of the gamebooks you read in particular broonage? Ah, LOTR - I tried reading those but I gave up before The Two Towers FAIL. Mind you I did complete The Hobbit which was great.
Nope sorry, i just remember being killed off a lot and the covers being really cool (well for an 8 year old they were "the most awesome" thing).

I love the puffin cover! Reminds me of my childhood in the 80s.

Tell me about it Broonage - I keep dying ALL THE TIME! Luckily I'm writing it all down so I can just go back on myself Shh.

That's a great list there - I'll have to get some of them - only have the first 9.

Here's a great gamebook I need to check out too -



It's a modern zombie gamebook and you play the character of a chainsaw weilding pink plush bunny rabbit.






Hows that book, Inspector Tanzi?

As sad as it sounds, I find it hard to put aside the time for reading these days. The last time I went on a small reading binge was a good couple of years ago with a bunch of Phillip Dick, some Robert Heinlein and a little bit of J.G Ballard. I managed about ten books in a couple of months, helped by a lot of travelling and then couldn't get more than a third of the way through Stranger In A Strange Land and haven't got back into a book since.

Presently reading "Cunning Folk and Familiar Spirits:Shamanic Visionary Traditions in Early Modern British Witchcraft and Magic" by Emma Wilby and just about to start "The Devil is a Gentleman:The Life and Times of Dennis Wheatley" by Phil Barker.

Got 2 books on the go at the moment, first started reading Alex Cox's X Films, which is interesting, if a little humourless. This has been put on hold for Warwick Davis' Size Matters Not since the latter is from the library so I need to read it before it goes back! the Warwick Davis book is more light-hearted and an entertaining read, although I'm looking forward to the chapter on the Leprechaun books the most!

Likewise, I tend to read more in the summer actually, sitting out in the sun with a book.
