Worth Reading...

I've found a few things online today that I thought were interesting.

A.L. Harper, an editor at Blogcritics, wrote a fantastic article entitled Terry Pratchett Is Not Fantasy. It's really great and if you love Terry Pratchett then it's a must read.

Over at the Daily Mail there is an article about Prince William's new book. He's writing about his mother and the article has a never before seen photo of Diana before she became a princess.

Loving Frank by Nancy Horan hits the number 5 spot on The New York Times best-seller list. Read her reaction here at Seattlepi.

Over at the Grumpy Old Bookman he has a post about M.J. Rose and her newest book The Reincarnationist, something I just happen to be reading at the moment.

What have you all been reading about?

Thanks for the links, Katie, interesting stuff. I've been trying to read the textbook for my Swedish language course - I'm not getting very far!

Glad you joined Angela! :)

Dingobear, Swedish? Wow. Good luck with that. I'm sure you'll figure it out. :)

Did GOB say that The Reincarnationist was all balls? Does that mean it's good? or not? Confused.

I think he was more talking about M.J. Rose saying on her blog that if you read her blog and take all her free advice then you should buy her new book. which I guess means she has a set. Donno.

But the book is good so far... I'm only a few chapters in but so far so good. Well written, it flows well. um... we'll see how it ends because there is a lot of sad stuff.

Nothingman, I haven't read anything of Vonnegut's although I've got a few of his books in my pile to read. Just need the time.

I loved Going Postal. One of his better books in Discworld in my opinion. You will have to tell me what you thought about it.
