This is a question This book changed my life

The Goat writes, "Some books have made a huge impact on my life." It's true. It wasn't until the b3ta mods read the Flashman novels that we changed from mild-mannered computer operators into heavily-whiskered copulators, poltroons and all round bastards in a well-known cavalry regiment.

What books have changed the way you think, the way you live, or just gave you a rollicking good time?

Friendly hint: A bit of background rather than just a bunch of book titles would make your stories more readable

Shocking thrillers
I've always had a soft spot for thrillers, particularly cheap nasty ones - the ones where the paperback covers are printed in lurid shades of scandal.

The type of book where you drink double espressos all night just so you can keep turning the pages.

The type of book that you keep hidden from your friends and family because it's just so trashy.

My favourite author is a guy called Tricity - his work is really quite something.

His best work?

It's a Shocker! by Alec Tricity.

I read that and I was knocked out.

Eyethannnque!

Shouldn't you be making some jam or...
Embroidering an antimacasser : )

I planted the last of my potatoes last night
And I'm off later to sow peppers, aubergines, more lettuces, sweetcorn, more dwarf french beans and mangetout.

The antimacassars can wait until next week when I'll be knitting my own orgasm.

I'm really not with it
I read the book title and thought "what a crap name for a book, why did she pick that up" and only got it when I read the replies.

*feels bad*

Al
did you have a heavy night? You just don't seem quite with it this morning.

Knitting an orgasm?
I wish that had happened in Noah and Nelly. Kids' television would have been much more fun.

"All aboard the SkylaaaAAAAAAArk! Yes! Yes!!"

*worries about how many people are old enough to remember this prgramme*

@K2k6
did you have to wait for the telly to warm up before you could watch that one!

Hmph
*squares up to Al*

*slaps*

*has to sit down*

*Feels old*
Mind you, I couldn't have told you where 'All aboard the Skylark' came from.

And yes, you had to wait for the black and white telly to warm up.

*fetches K2k6 his slippers and cane*
*apologises for being so rude*
(, Thu 22 May 2008, 10:36, closed)
Ahh, that's better.
*accepts apology, slippers and cane from Al*

*reminisces about the war*

(The Falklands war - I'm not that bloody old!)

i like that
you've suggested a current author, instead of all the old classics
(, Thu 22 May 2008, 10:54, closed)
A current author
Aha hahaa!

I see what you did there!
