Oops, sorry i didnt see this page.
I already posted for help in another part of these forums a couple of weeks ago.


Anyway, here goes.

Reg (Adrian on a sunday~~~ask me mother)
44
UK
2 daughters, 1 wife, 1 absolutely stunning granddaughter.
Never was into reading when i was younger, then i got married and started to work out what tv the wife likes to watch. So i started reading. No favourite genre, although i am a big fan of S.T.P and the discworld series. All my TP books are hard copy, just trying to find the first 8 releases, its like trying to find hens teeth.
Then i discovered Jeffrey Deaver, that man is a talent among talents.
Then Tom Holt, humour, the bloke ids as mad as a box of frogs.
Robert Rankin is who i'm reading at the moment, having just completed my first e-book...The da da de da ad code.
Bill Bryson, a very very funny travel writer. He's had me crying sat in the hospital waiting room. People were staring at me thinking i was a "special case"

I always said i would never get an e-reader, as i prefer the look and feel and smell of a book. Then one day i was waiting for the doctors to open, looked in the window of my local cash generator (other blood sucking money lending stores are available) and saw the kobo original. Had a mess about with it and thought i'd give it a go. It pains me to say that i'm hooked.
All i have on my reader at the moment is 15 Robert Rankin books.
Well, that just about covers me at the moment, sorry about the wall of text.

Happy reading folks.
