    Book Ideas

    I am not a big reader, actually I hardly read unless it is for my course.
    But my fiancee bought me Fry, Stephen (2000), Moab Is My Washpot: an autobiography and have bought
    Fry, Stephen (1994), The Hippopotamus
    Carwardine, Mark; Fry, Stephen (2009), Last Chance to See
    But looking for other books, really enjoyed the autobiography (so far) and was wondering what others have found interesting (especially if you have read this as well)

    Cheers I'd only read autobiography I think as I'd want it from their memory and point of view. And out of those ones I think the only one I'd consider is Ramsey, but not sure if that would really be that good.
    I've been going through Amazon books as well, but not a lot has caught my eye.
    Maybe I should just get the fiancee to go out and buy me a couple, that is how I started reading this book!

    That requires renewing and crazy stuff like that! I don't even take books out for my course from the Uni library as I prefer working at home and having my own books (cost me a fortune over the last few years though). Also our local one here in London is being refurbed atm. But yeah might be a good idea at least that way if I don't like a book I can return it and try another. Would also save me a fortune with the fiancee...she gets through books weekly sometimes!

    A good read then? I do think he is quite interesting, although know nothing about him as a person...could work out just as good though that way.

    The Andre Agassi Autobiography was great - read it at christmas

    Its next on my list to read. I think he's funny as and I've heard it is a right funny book

    TBH I read it as well and its ok not really an autobiography as such there is the odd story and then about two pages of guff - funny guff a lot of the time but guff non the less. Not your typical autobiography is what im basically saying
