I'm getting my computer back, I'm getting my computer back,
I'm getting my computer back, I'm getting my computer back!
Just in time for the highest holy day for list junkies too!
So stayed tuned for my own personal big-assed pretentious desert island list (with pictures).

YES! I love Hey Nostradamus. And whoa, I just bought Oh Play That Thing at Frankfurt airport when we had a six-hour layover and I was running out of stuff to read. It excited me because it was about jazz, and I was sold. I have only read about 30 pages though.

I'm just comment whoring on your blog today, haha.

And it's a long book too! The prequel is called Henry Star - not so much on the jazz front, but good nonetheless.
Eva says that The Committments was brilliant (and I concur).

I totally just realised I commented on the wrong entry. Durr. Sorry about that.

I haven't read the prequel!! I will have to get on that, thanks for the heads-up.

Any old place at all you want to comment, Ruhee, it's all good.
I should have mentioned that the Committments is also written by Roddy Doyle and it's the story of an Irish band who does motown. You may have seen the film.

I have yet to read the book, sadly. Well. I haven't seen the film either, but our showcase/stage band did Mustang Sally in Grade 9. The guy who sang it danced around wearing an Outback hat and had three girls singing backup, it was a riot.

I, on the other hand, channelled James Brown and did I Feel Good. WAY COOLER.

Oh Ruhee, you would have been totally cool doing I Feel Good! You have way too much fun at school.

Back to books, I gave you the wrong name for the prequel to Oh Play That Thing - it's actually called A Star Named Henry (don't know where my head was at). And I'm almost done reading your Invisible Monsters book - hope you don't mind if I hang onto it for a couple more days. Thanks - I'm enjoying it, as Chuck seems to be channelling Doug Coupland (one of my favs) in his writing style.
