    Me, too. I've usually got a fiction, non-fiction and a classic going at the same time.

    I've just finished Enid Blyton's "Five Snort Coke In The Holidays". It's a great read. The five of them were completely off their face most of the time and it was very fortunate that Mr Goon was around to bring law and order to bear. Big, burly Julian had his first sexual experience with another boy while he was off his trolley and, and, to be frank, he didn't enjoy it.

    And the movies, too...

    Going all Dumas, are we? The Musketeer sequels are on my to-read list. I read the original as a kid but have somehow never gotten around to the follow-ups.

    And some television versions, like the BBC adaptation in the 1960s. And ITC’s ...ahem... loose follow-up series starring George Dolenz and Nick Cravat, which had 12 episodes shot in Hollywood, before a further 27 episodes were shot at the National Studios, Elstree in the UK. In one episode when the Count (George Dolenz) has a flashback to his escape from Chateau D’If, it uses footage from the Robert Donat movie on the subject, including footage of Robert Donat as the Count!

    I’ve got The Musketeer sequels but haven’t got around to reading them yet.

    I've just finished reading Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman after watching and liking the film of the same name. The book tells the same story as the film but differs in several ways including continuing the story long past the point at which the cinema version ends. It's a very good book and easy to see why it was adapted into a successful film.

    Just finished The Bible. I won't give the ending away in case anyone hasn't read it yet but it's a little far fetched for me.

    I've just finished The Twins At Mallory Towers. Absolutely fantastic. Darrell organises a midnight feast in the dorm but Sister Agnes finds out and gives them all a jolly good spanking.

    I've just finished "Lesbian Zombies In Chains On Bloodthirsty Sex Romp". I won't say anything in case anyone is still reading it.

    I finished "Man from Atlantis" by Patrick Duffy earlier this week. It was better than I thought it would be. I am not that big on the whole sci-fi/fantasy genre but the book was enjoyable to read and I liked the backstory he created for Mark Harris or Ja-Lil. If you wondered why I used the other name read the book and it will all make sense. ;)

    The book also included lots of details and vivid descriptions of settings and characters. It was well written. :)

    I have the original novelisations that came out when the show was on. This sounds like an interesting addition.
