cor, I love book shopping. Waterstone's were doing a 3 for two offer as well, so my 'official' father's day present is Nick Harkaway's The Gone-Away World, with the addded extras of Charlie Higson's Silverfin (young James Bond) and Eoin Colfer's new Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox

yay for books!

I've not read any of Higson's young Bond books, though have heard various good things about them. I've listened to a couple of the Artemis Fowl books on audiobook, enormous fun and brilliantly read by Nathaniel Parker. Well worth checking out.

Went for lunch with K again today. Twice in one week! The staff in Waterstone's will be thinking we're having an illicit affair or something.

K picked up a selection from their 3 for 2 offer, but I worked out that it would be cheaper for me to buy the books on Waterstones.com, get them delivered to the branch, and buy them that way. I'm after, in no particular order

The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighbourhood, by David Simon & Ed Burns
Matter, by Iain M Banks
Bad Things, by Michael Marshall

Though I'm listening to the audiobook of Matter, which is jolly good. Though the narrator, when doing the voice of Ferbin, sounds remarkably like David Mitchell of Peep Show fame, which is mildly distracting.

Also very tempted by the new Artemis Fowl book - I've listened to the audiobooks of the first three, I think. All read by Nathaniel Parker and all fabulous.
