I voluntarily read mythology pages on wikipedia and the Hobbit/LotR trilogy were some of the first "proper" books I read so it's right up my alley.

Just reread LotR recently, although I didn't make it through the appendices a second time. I'm reading Dune at the mo (very slowly... dunno, just have a bit of an anxiety-related attention-deficit thing right now).

Another book I can't seem to through is Stephen King's It. The furthest I've made it is approx 300 pages in.

I liked It at the time but would NEVER go back to it. It's doubly egregious because the Stand is a big thick beast but is actually a masterpiece (in my opinion) so he has the ability. His short form is better though.

I think he was off his face on coke when he wrote It.

When he wrote what?


Hahahahaha.

But yes he had a serious drug problem.

I have a very distinct memory of being offered a chance to either play crash bandicoot on my cousins PS1 or read 2 chapters of LotR, and choosing the latter.

As a parent, looking back, that's an amazing con job. Kids are idiots.

At the Morrisons or the tesco? Because the tesco is a bit further out but the freezer bit of Morrisons is dug deep into the concrete so it would operate like a blast chamber and spare the town the worst of the poultry conflagration.

Think on.

As you sit in an unfamiliar stool in a gents toilet in Marlborough, there is the shuffling of feet and a whirring sound before you see an auger bit drilling onto one side of the cubicle. In disbelief you cannot get the words out before the whirring sound starts up again and another hole is augered out on the other side of the cubile. A rancid smelling cock pokes your left ear and then you realise Douglas Murray is amongst these misusers of this public convenience as he clears his throat and speaks his drivel at you for 30 minutes.

Those first four words alone is probably enough for a lot of people on here though.

I have not, fittingly for the deso thread I keep buying mountains of books despite being perma-dolescum and never read them.

However, I will make it my mission to read a Ligotti short story this weekend.

Nice! Need to dig up my copy of My Work Is Not Yet Done

There's a couplea decent audio book reads in YouTube also (couplea rubs ones too)

Nothing wrong with buying lots of books
