My wife and I visited England (up by York and Manchester) and much fun was had by all.
Too bad I came back with an addiction. It’s taken hold of me and is constantly with me. I can’t stop thinking about it and I wonder when I can get my next fix. I feel the constant need to spend lots of money to feed my habit (and with the exchange rate right now, that’s not a good thing), and I just can’t get the stuff I need over here.
That’s right, I’m an addict.
I’m addicted to Tom Holt books (not quite what you were expecting, eh?)
Yes, I casually picked up one of his books (“Falling Sideways“) in a shop while we were over there and finished it in about two days. I have to say, I haven’t read anything so delightfully light-hearted and funny in a long time (we’ll, that wasn’t something I’d read a million times over).
Alas, my probem still remains – the Amazon.com US store doesn’t carry them all (only like 10 or so) and ordering them from overseas is a bit expensive right now for us U.S-ers. I’ve ordered “Omnibus 5: Tall Stories” and “The Portable Door” from Amazon, and I’m counting the days.
It’s always fun to discover a writer you really enjoy, especially when you find out that that writer has loads of books for you to catch up on :)
