It's all about the little things
Today I finished reading “An Abundance of Katherines“, it’s a book highly recommended by my special friend across the pond (of Doom!). At first I thought it was going to be a chick flick book;boy meets girl (probably called Katherine), girl falls in love with boy, and i dunno, some interesting event happened, probably a third person, and then they break up, but in the end they get back together and BAM, fornication! THE END! But yeah… it really wasn’t haha. The book had loads of winning themes that I’m interested in which makes it a win; a child prodigy, anagrams, foreign languages, maths (mmm indexed and xkcd), witty humour and a shed load of cheeky footnotes! Here’s what the back of the book says (speed typed by moi):
19 Katherines and counting…
When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton’s type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.

I believe I first started reading Harry Potter around the start of August, I only received the book from Alice through the post and I started reading it on the coach to Canterbury where I was having that housewarming party at Stu’s place. At first I only wanted to read it since Alice expressed how much she loved the books and I thought it would be nice to be a part of that. After that I was in a proper readathon.

Today is quite a hectic day. Just started reading The Phantom of the Opera. Quite hard to get in already, probably because the book i bought for it is a tad smaller then you’d expect. Can’t wait for B. to get me theatre tickets .
My manics tickets arrived today too, looking much forward to do that Can imagine lots of fans sleeping outside the Apollo just so they can see them at the front. Madness.

Click and buy
Bought this book after borrowing it from B. and having a good long read. It’s definitely good for all you uni kids too I’ll read the back of the book, see what you think:
When he hears her favourite Beatles song, Toru Watanabe recalls his first love Naoko, the girlfriend of his best friend Kizuki. Immediately he is transported back almost twenty years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and desire – to a time when an impetuous young woman called Midori marches into his life and he has to choose between the future and the past.
