I've come to the conclusive I'm really rubbish at picking a good book. I'll browse through them in shops, or on Amazon, and buy something that I think sounds good, but end up never finishing them as I get bored. I have much better luck when I just go with what's popular. Started reading The Hunger Games and flew through them (did the same with Twlight a couple of years ago
It's made me want to get into reading more often, but going on recommendations rather than trying to find stuff myself. I'm really thinking of picking up a Kindle over the weekend, as one thing that often puts me off getting books is the amount of space they take up.
No idea where to start with the books though. I've always wanted to read Battle Royale, but Amazon don't have a kindle version at the moment. I'm possibly leaning towards Neil Gaiman
stuff (loved the Coraline film adaptation), but can't say any of his other books appeal after reading the synopsis of them.
Only read American Gods by him, but it was awesome.
