    Question for MSE Martin 9th Jun 07 at 10:52 AM
    So, you've done the Oldstyle Book and the Moneysaving Book and I noticed today when browsing the Waterstones website that you've got a DFW Book coming out (just in time for Christmas, folks! ), so what i wanna know is when is the Arms Book coming out? Come on, I think we deserve it. It'd be a bit like the World According to Carl Pilkington but I think it'd sell millions!

    I agree jmarko - what a great idea! And the site membership would double overnight once people saw what a wonderful time we all have here!

    But surely it would just be a Studentphil book.The life and times of Studentphilbot as he happerly sits behind his pc 24/7 moaning how life is sooooooooo hard for him.

    I think SP should bring his own book out,I know I`d buy it!

    I thought that had already been done by Sue Townsend - she calls him Adrian, though.

    can't help but be a little amused that someone on the Arms board had this moved - IT IS IRONIC NOT A SERIOUS SUGGESTION!!!!! :rolleyes:

    it would just be an SP book - but i like to think the front cover would be that picture of nelly parking his van on a bus shelter!

    Actually DFW book is for Chrismas 08 not 07 (its a big job and had to be delayed, i'm not even close to starting it).

    The next book is "The three most important lessons you've never been taught" in January.

    As for the Arms book... now there's an idea....

    Ooops no sorry I mean... now there's not an idea
