I've read every book, and halfway through The Da-Da De- Da- Da Code, and as I don't usually read books more than once (well, I know what's going to happen next Confused ), I'm probably going to have to dig out my old ones once I've finished this one.

I'm hoping that, as I'm pre menopausal the memory problems involved will mean I can enjoy some of them all over again Laughing Something to be said for getting older.

Which would you suggest I re-read? I have them all, somewhere, (if I can remember where they are. Very Happy)

The 2 I find myself re-reading most often are The Antipope and Armageddon The Musical..... if that helps!

I've reread most of them so am no use at all, my memory is clearly the worlds worst so don't worry Wink

I've been trying to remember which one i first read, I think my son gave me a copy of Raiders of the Lost carpark, I started reading and thought, "what the....." I soon realised it wasn't the first of the set, and when I finished it, read the first one, then the rest. By then I was hooked.

I now buy them as they come out in hardback, I've never bought hardbacks before, but I can't wait for them to come out in paperback. I'm a slow reader, I don't skim, I read every word, and if I'm distracted (which can be frequently when I'm working my night shift, and keep getting disturbed from reading my book, it's just not on, LOL) end up going back a paragraph or so, so it takes me time, which is good, or I'd have run out years ago.

The Brentford Triangle would be my suggestion. The funniest book I've read full stop. The darts tournament alone is worth the re-read. Utter madness Laughing As somebody who adored the sadly late Spike Milligan discovering Robert Rankin was a blessing Very Happy

Good suggestions, it's a while since I read any of those. I'll dig through the dust and fluff that builds up due to my internet addiction, Wink And see which turns up first.

Thanks.

Nice to read that someone likes Snuff Fiction, it's one of my favourite books, but I don't think it sold many copies. The one that really bombed out was Garden of Unearthly Delights and i really liked that one too.

I also hate being a suck up but Garden Of Unearthly Delights is in fact one of my favourites. Its usually the one I lend to people who have never read anything of youre but find the titles interesting. It usually works and I have created a few addicts Smile
