Who of us is reading what…

August 24, 2006

Vampiregirl– online materials on vampires and walk-ins and it all sucks.
Hehe, where did I get this word? Seems to be a common word in here.

Leto– Re-reading Dune2, trying to sort memories out.
That book is basically allright, but few things seem missing to me and I can’t put my finger on what exactly this is. Maybe Shee or even Sio know. Reading through this is also a form of Tedah Riagrimi.

Nat-Leia– planning to re-read some Zahn’s book about the SW universe, and looking for Battle Royale, not successfuly.
Going to go with manga, perhaps, because W7 can’t tell
me  the same kind of information book contains. Also, plan to read Dark Tower series, finally.

Sephora– crystal material, don’t think about it.
Us off-worlders can have that luxory, or is it banned now?

Roland– Multiple’s Pages, trying to sort out something.

Aimee– not reading, but would like to.

Jinxi– I ve had ayedrops and my vis is quit eblu
erred, so guess i’m very readin! now.

Jinxi left unedited, note by Kazegimi.

Desperately seeking

August 24, 2006

an e-book. You wouldn’t know how hard sometimes finding some brilliant literature is. I wanted to read the book of Battle Royale, novel, not the comics/manga, by Takami Koushun. (or actually, reversed word order in English). I’ve looked almost everywhere- on forums about e-books if noone wanted it before (only one person I found did. Said person didn’t meet with success, though.), on Torrents, on yahoogroups and livejournal… Nada.  I have to look through eMule and DC++
yet, but I am doubtful I will meet with any sifnificant success. BookCrossing community doesn’t have an idea about this as e-book, my usual sources neither.

I tried googling with name of book, name of author, name of book and author together, ISBN number, in formats of .pdf, .doc, .html, .txt, in multiple languages. (English, Spanish, Polish, Czech, Russian, French, Japanese… those I am quite familiar with.) Nothing. I feel like giving up.

I don’t think I’m dishonest when looking for books like this. It simply means I can’t get said books- in my country, there virtually aren’t such books and international library cross doesn’t seem to work when I ask, and it would be too hard to obtain them through Amazon, shipping and stuff. Being an avid reader sucks at times, it really does.
