I bought these two at the same time. They are both written by the fairly famous Danny Wallace

He is a TV presenter in the UK. The above is a promo shot for his TV series (Now a dvd) in which; just for the hell of it, created his own country! Big Smile

Anyway...the books.....One is called Join Me

Explains itself really. Lol

The other is called Yes Man

Yes Man is about Danny deciding to say yes more. A lot more. All because a man on a bus told him to. It was a revelation to him and he realized he had been saying no a hell of a lot and was staying in far more than is normal. The only thing is that at first, he decides to say yes to everything. It gets him into a few scrapes so he decides to tone it down a little and only says yes when it isn't a lie and he challenges himself to go 6 months (the rest of the year) without saying no.

Danny's Youtube Commercial (in which he stars) for Yes Man

Believe it or not, it is being turned into a movie with Jim Carrey! How awesome is that? Big Smile

My talent's for lying. For sticking the knife in when people least expect it. Then walking away with a smile and a wave before they even realise they're bleeding.

I prefer humorous books to any other genre tbh. And Stardust is an awesome book. I actually read it after seeing the movie (which is also brilliant). Lol

Aaah, Atwater-Rhodes is good.

Anyways, the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin. It's currently up to it's 5th book, with the 6th promised by September. Epic Fantasy series based off of the War of the Roses.

And anything by R.A. Salvatore. That man is a Fantasy Genius.

Rolls Eyes You creep me out

I started reading stuff by a really good Author recently.

David Webber wrote the Honor Harrington Series and it's had me roped in. It's a very good Sci-Fi read.

Recently I've been reading
Alan Carr's autobiography.
Gears of War - Aspho Fields.
1001 Ridiculous Ways to Die.
So far I'm liking the first two, but the third one seems more morbid than ridiculous. For example a guy being crushed by a 15 tonne lorry falling on him.

You know cloud.... prolly every way to die in that book has already happened....

And Has anyone else read The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher yet?
If you haven't already seen the season of television episodes that where released for it, it's about a guy called Harry Dresden who is a Modern Day Wizard. Pretty cool stuff.

Apparently they all happened because they're true stories so... Interesting. Although more unfortunate than ridiculous in my opinion.
Annoyingly enough, I'm still reading them (i've lost interest and going about a word a month >_<Wink.
