    I know this is a little of topic for a webmaster forum but that's what the general section is for!

    Do you read? just magazines or books? I love reading but I'm not very good at exploring new authors etc. I tend to just re-read books that i have read before and authors i know i like. I'm currently re-reading Purfume by Patrick Suskind and i would recomend it to anything. It's subject matter is so unusal and strange that i would probably put anyoneoff by trying to describe it! but the prose and the way in which the author expreses himself is so poetic it just flows in a brilliantly readable way. I know that Suskind is a German author but i think he must have written this in English because it's too good to be a translation..! If you want to buy a last minute christmas present for yourself i would recomend this..

    so have you read any good books lately?

    I stopped reading for a long time, realising that was one of the reasons that made me change direction in business, and work as a self employed SEO rather than a self employed businessman.

    I am starting to read again now for fun. This last year I have read some classics, Dickens Twain etc. Some Terry Pratchett (who I love), some Dean Koontz, who I also love reading, and one or two books for business, as well as PHP & MYSQL books.

    Reading is fantastic, and I have to admit to doing my best work thought wise, after allowing my mind to wander off into another world via a book.
