True, there are some wise, hearty, and of course funny gems in there.

Did you read Last Chance to See? I cannot recommend it highly enough. It's one of my all-time favorite books; funny, sad, and witty throughout. Definitely belongs to the essential Adams, imo.

charlie brooker's 'screen burn' a little outdated, but the funniest thing i've ever come across. i was giggling constantly on the train this morning.

Finished Tom Hodgkinson's How To Be Idle. What struck me most is not handbook side of the book, but the manifesto side. I've not once come across a more reasoned and solid argument for anarchy as a viable political system of thought.

Can't say I'm much changed by the book, but I do feel more in context. I am an idler.

Must read for any punk music scenesters.

That one's on my every-growing wish list.

Neil gaiman: the cemetery book

As in the jungle book but instead of lions and tigers and bears (oh fucking my) there are ghoulies and ghosties. Not as good as neverwhere but a damn sight better than stardust
