Book Club
« on: February 11, 2015, 22:21:11 »
I think we used to have one on the old site. As I'm old and boring thought I'd start another.

Not long finished Guy Martin's autobiography. Not much point reading it unless you're into bikes and the Manx TT / roadracing. Good read if you are!

Think I'm done with football books for a while, need a break.

Currently reading Unbroken which is pretty damned good. Got a couple of Martin Amis books lined up for after.

Anyone else reading anything other than the Internet / Daily Mail / books on coal mining?

Have you seen the Guy Martin programs where he's trying to break various speed and/or endurance records? The over the edge TT documentary he did a few years ago was class as well. He's a proper dude!

Yeah the TT Closer to the Edge documentary is class.  Martin is a bit of a mentalist, but in a good, entertaining way.  Not a stabby way.

Reading about people who actually worked for a living might be to tiring for you , best stick to your lentil farming , and creaming your keks over fair trade coffee

Hahaha. You don't know anything about me Andy. I know you like coal mining and the daily mail and that seems to upset you, which is obviously amusing.

Why would you find upsetting someone amusing?

Sounds like a personality disorder to me.

I couldn't find it in the bookstores so I will have to buy it online.

One of the adverts I saw for the Aguero's book says this:

"Read about surviving Mario's madness, getting caught in the crossfire between Mancini and Tevez or how he grew up playing as Liverpool on the Playstation."

As if that wasn't enough it has a foreword by Lionel Messi.
