What I Just Finished Reading
Dear Fatty by Dawn French. This is Dawn French's autobiography, which she's written as letters to people in her life. It took me a while to work out that 'Fatty' was Jennifer Saunders. I don't know when it was published - it wasn't at the start of the ebook at all. But it was a bit weird to read about how amazing she thought Lenny Henry was when they've been divorced for a while. Overall, although it was interesting, I just found it quite hard to read. I think it was the snippest of silly letters in there that were a bit hard going.
What I'm Currently Reading
Or rather what I've decided I'm not reading any more. Which is Star Trek: Collateral Damage by David Mack. I got it because it is literally the only Star Trek fiction ebook in the library. I'm 100 pages in and I still couldn't summarise the plot for you because there are lots and I don't care about any of them. The final straw came during Picard's trial for something (I don't know what, presumably it's in a previous book) and there were two pages of lawyers talking about Space Corps Directives. OK, so not literally, but it was as dry as that. I have officially given up on it.
It's Not Me, it's You! By Jon Richardson. I bought this because it was 99p. It's something he wrote a while ago about his search for perfection. So far I'm stuck in the very long introduction and am hoping the book improves.
What I'm Reading Next
The Demon Headmaster by Gillian Cross. I discovered recently that there had been another TV series of this late last year, and I watched it on the iPlayer. It was a while through it before I discovered it wasn't just a remake with different people and a lot more technology, but a sequel (not like the other sequels). After watching it I wanted to re-read the book, since the series referenced some things from it and I don't remember it that well. Of course it's too old for the library to have it, but it was 83p. I would have read it next, but library books got in the way.
