    Book description stolen from amazon:
    Is it possible to share your life with someone whose record collection is incompatible with your own? Can people have terrible taste and still be worth knowing? Do songs about broken hearts and misery and loneliness mess up your life if consumed in excess?

    For Rob Fleming, thirty-five years old, a pop addict and owner of a failing record shop, these are the sort of questions that need an answer, and soon. His girlfriend has just left him. Can he really go on living in a poky flat surrounded by vinyl and CDs or should he get a real home, a real family and a real job? Perhaps most difficult of all, will he ever be able to stop thinking about life in terms of the All Time Top Five bands, books, films, songs – even now that he’s been dumped again, the top five break-ups?
    Memorable, sad and very, very funny, this is the truest book you will ever read about the things that really matter.

    So, Gauny, How is that High Fidelity? It sounds like it could be good.

    @ 97reb: don't know what to say. It is said to be a "classic" and I heard a lot of good things about it before I started reading it. So far I have no idea why ppl like it so much. It isn't boring me to death, it's easy to read.....fine. But it's not thrilling in any way. *shrugs*

    Being idle is scary... I thought I'd never start to read this... but since I don't have anything else to do...

    NR:
    Battletech - Mine is the vengeance

    PS: It's poorly written, tho... and I think the topic it's about could be easily defined as geeky by alot of people ;)

    I'm about halfway through "The Alienist" by Caleb Carr, my ex-girlfriend bought it for me last year but I got distracted with the Paul Dianno biography and re-reading The Two Towers for awhile. Great book about a serial killer in New York City back in the late 1890's.

    Recently bought yet another travel guide for Sweden, another biography of Astrid Lindgren and a novel by Kerstin Ekman.
    Just started reading the bio.
