So there's this guy on flickr who takes classic albums and makes book covers for them and he recently did one for SILY. http://www.flickr.com/photos/cgstopgo/5 ... /lightbox/ he did them for a bunch of other albums to and there all pretty awesome.

When I saw the title of the thread, before seeing the opening post, one thought that sprung to mind was that if SILY was a book, it would be Italo Calvino's novel, "If on a winter's night a traveler". (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_on_a_wi ... a_traveler)

And reading the Wikipedia article a comment worried me with regard to an Avalanches follow up...
"Author David Mitchell described himself as being "magnetised" by the book from its start when he read it as an undergraduate, but on rereading it, felt it had aged and that he didn't find it "breathtakingly inventive" as he had the first time, yet does stress that "however breathtakingly inventive a book is, it is only breathtakingly inventive once" - with once being better than never."

"If on a winter's night a traveller" is wonderful.

However, I read "cloud atlas nine" by david mitchell and thought it completely shit.

Oh I love Cloud Atlas. Didn't realise there were 8 sequels... :wink:

Not such a fan of Number9Dream. A competent Murakami pastiche, verging almost into the realms of 'fan-fiction'....

First off I love how this turned into a book discussion thread,
secondly, has anyone here read this wonderful little book called hope for the flowers by Trina Paulus, it's a really sweet short story. If you haven't read it try to find it because it's really good.
