Didn't exactly buy it, my friend bought it a couple of days ago because she liked the cover and wanted to use it in a project she's doing... she couldn't remember the name of the book when she was telling me about it but she knew I liked Hoffman and described the book as looking like something which was made into a shitty z movie... I was pleasantly surprised to find it was Straw Dogs, she apparantly had never heard of it ... I snatched it right off her silly girl.

I spend most of my spare cash on DVDs, so usually don't have anything to spare on books.
Fortunately my local library is particularly good, and I generally check out 2 - 3 books per week from there.

bought All the pretty horses and Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy, same writer as No Country for Old Men but both are far, far superior books to No Country. his use language is quite astounding and Blood Meridian manages to be even more violent than No Country

Books are useless! I only ever read one book, "To Kill A Mockingbird" and it gave me absolutely no insight on how to kill mockingbirds! Sure it taught me not to judge a man by the colour of his skin... but what good does *that* do me?

'Cause I'm a bit of a stingy so-and-so, I rarely buy books new - Instead I grab 'em out of the Second-Hand / Charity shops, and I tend to pick up a fair few, most of which don't get read for at least 6 months, but I did bite the bullit yesterday, and shelled out the mighty sum of 3.87 for the following, from Asda:
 

 
Oh, and speaking of Charity Shops, I also picked up the following for .50, so I'm one step closer to completing my Coupland collection:

The Wire is surely the best TV show ever broadcast in America. This claim isn't based on my having seen all the possible rivals for the title, but on the premise that no other program has ever done anything remotely like what this one does, namely to portray the social, political, and economic life of an American city with the scope, observational precision, and moral vision of great literature.

The Wire has never won an emmy? [It] deserves the Nobel Prize for Literature!

They were on 3 for 2 in Waterstones today so I couldn't help myself....

(The Tunnels of Cu Chi; A remarkable story of war in Vietnam.)





I couldn't find a pic of the version I picked up; it has a helmet on the cover instead.

After buying those three I ran smack bang into another two books I desperately want, so I'm asking my father if he'll very kindly donate them to me on my birthday.


Edit: Just noticed my 3rd book hadn't shown up in my post.
