Just thought I would give an update on how I am going with U2 a diary: I am about half way through it (1989) and I am really enjoying it! I love how much detail you have put it in! well done! I think it is a serious contender for my book of the year (I will put it with 2008's lot as 2009 has just started  :P)

Nice going Angel! I would say I am not even a quarter of the way through and I LOVE it. The diary format is genius! I would be much further along except for the fact that I'm on the @U2 website posting with all of the fun people here a lot of the time! I told a forum member that I was a Mom which makes me good at muli-tasking but I am not that good!  I have yet to perfect the art of typing a post and reading at the same time!!!! ;D I'll keep trying though.


Well, update: I am finally about half way through. I have to read it late at night when my sons are sleeping! I just wanted to say that the diary format is really special to me because I am Larry's and Edge's age so I can really relate my life to U2's! I followed them so early on (from the beginning really) that it is great to learn all that was taking place as I was first discovering them here in the clubs around NYC!

I am a really fast reader! I have this book on the go and another novel!

I had to learn to read fast but take it all in for my Literature classes.  Its quite a nice art once you get the hang of it LOL!

haha I love doing that with U2 phrases! One of my friends said "(You have) Been living like a mole" and I just started singing the rest of Elevation. None of them had any idea what I was doing!  :P

Anyway back to Matt...
