creeping death

my room is now 5% tidy. analysts are expecting simon's room tidying to be one of the growth industries of the next few days.
i read a bryce courtenay book today 'solomon's song'. sort of bad, gratuitously protagonisty protagonists, decrying the sort of heroic boys own stuff that lured men off to war, but at the same time indulging in some of the same narrative ploys- unreasonably skilled hero despatching the enemy, colourful and exotic characters. i had fun reading it in spite of the general pot-boileryness.
the reason i waqs reading it in the first place was that i have read nearly all the books that i own and this one turned up under some heap that i was excavating in my room.

If you choose to read every crappy novel that you unearth in your heap of a room, no wonder it is taking so long. Ayesha says, have you found "Germs, Guns and Steel" cos she'd like it back pls. And where is my tenor recorder?
