51445 And to repeat my boring old sound bite... No teenager gets its porn from ebooks. They know exactly where to go for that sort of thing

51445 Hmm. I do like the idea of a dirty reader app though. Oh hang on, I already have one... It's called predictive text

51445 It is the slippery slope. Quite apart from having an app changing what the author intended, why do we have to protect everyone from offence?

51445 Just a normal morning for me.
TPBM still has spots in their eyes after watching the eclipse.

51445 So I am stealing this straight out of the radio 4 TODAY programme. They are looking for a happy song to represent International Day of happiness on 20th March!

Can you suggest a happy book to read while listening to your song?

My suggestion is 'Pay it forward' by Catherine Ryan Hyde.

51445 I call myself the worlds greatest lover. As long as I don't give out customer satisfaction forms there are no statistics to suggest it isn't true.

But seriously, I think you are entitled to call yourself a writer as soon as you believe you are one. Do you think it gives you more confidence or sets a standard for you to attain?

It was so peaceful around here. Who fixed the iPad? I told you all to pretend you didn't know anything about iPads didn't I?

I think you would be surprised Julie. I very much doubt if the average age on this group is much below *ahem* 40!

51445 Something Nicer - Andrew K Lawston

What happens when ET doesn't phone home, but stays for 30 years? When the evil clown under a child's bed carries on lurking in the shadows through sixth form? When a cat decides catching mice is over-rated, and fixes her ambitions on becoming an art critic? Or when the Internet becomes sentient, and googles the best way to overthrow humanity?

With a cast of ghost zombies, senile witches and cloned Santas, this second volume of short stories from Andrew K Lawston develops the author's unique way of looking at the world, and ensures you'll never look at a stepladder in the same way.

51445 The Lost Empress - Steve Robinson

On a foggy night in 1914, the ocean liner Empress of Ireland sank en route between Canada and England. The disaster saw a loss of life comparable to the Titanic and the Lusitania, and yet her tragedy has been forgotten.

When genealogist Jefferson Tayte is shown a locket belonging to one of the Empress’s victims, a British admiral’s daughter named Alice Stilwell, he must travel to England to understand the course of events that led to her death.

Tayte is expert in tracking killers across centuries. In The Lost Empress, his unique talents draw him to one of the greatest tragedies in maritime history as he unravels the truth behind Alice’s death amidst a backdrop of pre-WWI espionage.
