    Link for anyone interested: http://www.peterbunzl.com/cogheart/
    I'm loving it so much that I also own the sequel it's really captured me!
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    Was reading Room but didn't like where the story was heading, I've ordered a copy of Cogheart it may suit me better.

    In what way, Mike?
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    Is it ok to ask a book question here? Well I am doing it anyway haha......

    When I am going to hospital I am going to take a book or two with me. I want to get into biographies and books of those sorts. Do you all have some suggestions? I know some of you read books like I play videogames

    What interests you?

    Harry Greggs autobiography is very good. My friend wrote a book about growing up in Manchester in the 50s. His memories of the Busby Babes are like it happened yesterday. It's called Forever a Babe. That is a brilliant read and I'm not saying that just because he's my friend. Headscarf Revolutionaries by Brian Lavery is brilliant too. It tells the story of a group of fishermans wives who led a campaign for tighter safety laws on deep sea fishing trawlers.

    Well those all seem great. It combines history and sports. Those are two things that interest me. And science etc. I did see I can get those books on amazon. But then they wont be here in time. But I will add them to my list. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Do you have a library? Could you borrow the books from there to start with?

    First Light by Geoffrey Wellum is amazing - and he stayed in the guest house Marc's nan ran whilst he wrote it.
