    Heh, books... I dunno, they're a murky area in my life. I read loads of random ones...

    Current (most recent): Hybrids, ... forgot the author

    Best psychological thriller: Kerosene, by Chris Wooding

    ... I don't read much.

    Best Shakespeare? Heh: Twelfth Night, or The Merchant of Venice (onleh 'cause I went and saw the play)

    I haven't read Hamlet. I should though, but yeah, only time for Shakespeare is like class, no way is that leisure reading, and like, I think I've finished all Shakespeare, seeing as I'm *definitely* not taking English to the next level... and we've finished it for this course, so yeah. Heh, I guess I miss out, or maybe I should rejoice...

    The Client by John Grisham was also verreh good.

    Well, that's my list for now.

    Suicide: what really happens in the afterlife? channeled conversations with the dead.

    Its a good read for those who believe its possible to communicate with those who have "passed to the otherside." All the conversations are with people who have committed suicide.
