I just got an unofficial Muse book through the post. Yes, I'm sad, but it's a good read :P

Is it a biography of them?

I read Catch Me If You Can (story of Frank Abegnale Jr) after seeing the film. It's a little different from the film, more to it as you might expect. It wasn't bad, some of the stunts the guy pulled were quite funny.

Just got Battle Royale and read Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami. It has one of my favorite quotes of all time. The main character is wondering if he should have sex with a drunk girl or not...

"It be like placing bets with marked cards. Not fair. But then again, how much jurisdiction does fairness have over sex? If fairness is what you wanted, your sex life would be as exciting as algae growing in a fish tank."

Anyways, it's a damn good book. Everyone should read it.

Just bought "Birdsong"...Read the first few chapters, great war book.

PS: CSAMH, try "Cloud of Sparrows" by Takashi Matsou, you'd probably like it. Good book.
