Postby Summer » Sun Oct 26, 2003 12:37 pm

Mine are:

1.Portrait of a killer - jack the ripper case closed by Patrica Cornwell
2.Frank Skinners Autobiography by Frank Skinner
3.Lord of the rings trilogy by JRR Tolkien
4.Porno by Irvine Welsh
5.Kurt Cobain Journals
If I don't care about myself,who else will?

I love books by Patricia Cornwell and James Herbert, particularly 'Postmortem' and 'The Dark' respectively. 'Rules Of Attraction' by Bret Easton Ellis is brilliant also.

Besides the obvious book that I read every day...
I love
Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
The Entire Shakespear Collection (trust me...it's long)
Pretense - Lori Wick
Calvin and Hobbes comic books (right on Misatok!)
Quiet on the Western Front
Not sure who the last one is by, but it's what I've based a lot of my poetry on
HE has all the answers

The wait for that perfect someone may be long and painful, but the payoff lasts even longer, and is the most painless thing in the world.
