    Finished in the last two months:
    The Why Cafe by John Strelecky
    Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett
    Dead Man's Trousers by Irvine Welsh (f'in awesome)

    and currently I am reading Chuck Palahniuk's Adjustment Day, which is a book that starts out as a nightmare inspired by 3rd wave feminist SJWs that goes much further down a weird rabbit hole only Palahniuk can dig.

    I didn't know that karate looked like a piercing being ripped from a nostril...

    Ripping out your piercings could be one karate technique.... I suppose.

    I have a number of different translations of Divine Comedy. This is the Henry Wordsworth Longfellow translation.

    Recently finished the 2nd Game of Thrones book and Terry Pratchetts' Feet of Clay. That leaves me two Discworld novels I have not read yet(and like 5 I havn't read in english). Sad :( .

    I am halfway through American Psycho, and I had started White also by Brett Easton Ellis. Though I put White down after a particularly gay chapter about Richard Gere.

    I just finished a book on Taoist Chi Kung. It was highly technical Chinese medicine... very dry reading.

    Now reading this:

    Finished Anzac Girls.

    Despite being a well written, a very well written, history the material is comforting and harrowing. What those men and women lived through defies description.... words can't even begin to describe the horror and I can't imagine it.

    Now reading this:

    After this I have something on the burner to read which is definitely not related to Australia's war involvements.

    I got over waiting. After the end of the TV series I just don't care any more.
