There are two things i wish i'd never seen/heard of.
one is stephen fry's 'QI', the other is clavell's 'Shogun'.

because if I hadn't, i'd have the joy of discovering them for the first time again.

The first time i read shogun, i was 16. It took me 4 days to read it. I slept about 3 hours in total, in those 4 days. Not kidding. I could not put it down. I re-read the book every year after that for about 10 years. Then about every other year... i haven't read it in 3 years now. I think I've forgotten it enough to enjoy it again. I actually picked up a bit of japanese reading it lol

Fry admits to reading Georgette Hayer. I read her when i was young. I loved her stories. Anyone who admits to reading her is okay in my books. Besides, I find Fry as funny as hell.
