I am currently reading a book called The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, its a book that takes place all over Europe but at the moment the chapter I am on takes place in Oxford and there is a Rochester reference in it. The heroine of the story is having a tour round a college unnamed but presumable Wadham where she is shown a bench that Rochester carved something rude on.It rather suprised me to come across it :lol: the story is about Vampires if anyone wants to know.

It's always fun to run across those things. :-O There's a TL connection in Good Omens also.

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Oh, well -I didn't really care for that book the first time I read it, and I was resisting a re-read, being tempted by the ONBC discussion. I'm afraid I may be roped in as well. I'm just starting the 3rd book of the Bartimaeus Trilogy, and I love it. I could so see Johnny doing Bartimaeus!
