Lost and Found

Today I took on an orphan. Whilst heading to work I found a discarded copy of Tom Cox's Educating Peter, a 'part coming-of-age story and part urban travelogue' about the musical education of a surly teenager by the author, a music critic and friend of said teen's parents.

It is my intent to read this disenfranchised tome and then release it into the wild to fend for itself. Now, I know there are innumerate book sharing schemes out there, many of which log the travels of the books as they go. I quite like this idea and thought I would petition you good people for any advice you may have on experiences you've had with these services? Anyone used one before, or have any idea which is likely to be more active in the UK?

I'll let you know how it goes (both the reading and the releasing) in later posts. May even break my lull, eh?

I read that - the title was so full of promise, but in the end only really made me happy by showing me that there were more boring people of my age in the world than me :)

"Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas with Crisps" it is not.
Indeed not, but I'm enjoying it thus far. Certainly his portrayal of Music & Video Exchange was spot on to the point of out loud laughter on the train. We shall see how it goes.
