Flat Earth News, by Nick Davies

An award-winning reporter exposes falsehood, distortion and propaganda in the global media.

Only on Chapter 1 but already stunned by the extent of the crisis in journalism - at least "crisis" if you happen to be of the view that journalism should give a shit about, y'know, truth.

currently reading: The Lord of The Rings - The Fellowship Of The Ring

been a long time since I read this. I'm a big fan of the movies so the version of LOTR that was in my head for a long time was the movie version. Interesting to go back and see how the movies and the books differ, which is quite a bit

Spell it out, boy. What have you to lose?

On a side note, I've wondered about Ronnie-O. of the Sacrament everyday.

Just finally read Douglas Adams - Salmon Of Doubt - which was excellent and well worth it, not for the 11 chapters of the 3rd Dirk Gently novel but mostly for the other articles, interviews and speeches that he did which are either funny or very wise indeed.

Now reading: Lonesome Traveller by Jack Kerouac, a bunch of short stories with him travelling all over the world in 1950s america.

"Then We Came to the End" by Joshua Ferris.
Awesome first person plural account of a downturn in a Chicao advertising agency, and the gossip, disfunctional coworker dynamics and half-truths that go along with any work "Family".
