"Shaggy Blog Stories" I was tipped off about this book by a friend and boy, was it worth the money - especially as over half of that money has now gone to Comic Relief to help people in need in Africa and the UK. This is a terrific anthology: professional, funny, varied, entertaining. I'd recommend it to anyone - and if any of my relatives are reading this, guess what you're getting for YOUR birthday this year!! Helen
I've just finished it and, yes - it *really* is as brilliant as the blurb makes it sound! Just thank *Christ* this annual upswell of concern for the undernourished and abused allows us to pat ourselves on the back via projects like this about how caring and concern-ed we are, is all I can say. I just hope those cadaverous African bastards realise just *how* much they should feel indebted to us - let alone the good old British banks into whose coffers the bulk of those well-intentioned donations will be going. L.U.V. on ya - and here's to an even more successful Comic Relief 2008!! Bob
"Yay! First!" Ahem. I believe that is the standard bon mot from a blogger being 'first to comment'. Obviously, I haven't actually read this tome yet, but it'll be a corker, on that you can rely. Well done, Mike et al.
