Re: What is your favourite book?

Can't pin it down to one specific book but I've got a batch of desert island/burning house books. In no order: Albert Camus' The Fall, Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five, Douglas Adams' H2G2, Philip Dick's Valis and Chuck Palahnuik's Survivor collectively represent a loose of approximation of my ow...

Re: What are you readioactive now(and other book related stuff)?

From a pure literature standpoint, I'm currently two lining One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Erica Wagner's Rainbow. That's ignoring all the research papers and textbooks I've been mainlining recently.

Re: Tea Snobbery

My standard gotos tend to be bog standard builder's tea in a mug or Earl Grey, although I'll happily hunt down a good green or something oriental. I usually insist on lemon with EG which is a little snobby, I suppose.
