Went on a bit of a reading marathon there lately. Read A Walk in The Woods, Down Under and Notes from a Small Island all by Bill Bryson.
Then read All the Kings Men by Robert Penn Warren. A truly outstanding book. Re-reading MOI at the moment and trying to finish off Crime and Punishment. Bloody book has been hanging over me for years.

I never found the DaVinci Code was as brilliant as people insist it was. It was good, no doubt about that, but not half as good as many of the other books published in 2004. The reason it has sold as good as it has is because it's written in a way that makes people who normaly don't read able to finish it.. Seldom a page were nothing special and important happens.

Ofc, my growing dislike for the book may be because I'm working part time in a books store and have gift wrapped hundreds of the bl***y book. Posted Image

Anyways, rereading books for exams . "Catcher in the Rye"

@Rodeo - History is fun so who cares what other people think.

No wonder you didn't like Conn Iggulden's books though

Yeah, even I misread the Shore bit the first time Posted Image

Currently re-reading Kirsten Britain's "Green Rider" after I heard there was a sequel out, although I can't find it in any library. Also looking for the 'Ruins of Ambrai' by Rawn- despite the ludicrous gender politics, it was a cracking good read, and I heard the final one in the trilog is due to be out soon.

Sorry,

It's by Stephen King. The resolution of the The Dark Tower is the biggest thing in epic fantasy this year.

Frankly, Stephen King has shat better books than Brooks' best work.

@Fiddler. I'd forgotten about your Clancy fixation ( me dads favourite author,no less ).

Still reading "Bad Timing" and a few short stories before "Iron Council" arrives, cannot wait.

All my books are now on shiny new ( well Ikea )bookshelves after our move...we even now have a "library" room at Pale Towers, although you couldn't swing more than seven or eight cats at a time, and in the evening it will have to double as the ballroom Posted Image.

Just don't go to the store next door, the 'used women shoppe'. You might get more than you bargained for.

Finished Al Reynolds "Century Rain" A fantastic return to form, and a great detective-time trvel yarn it is too. Fans of his more harder edge work may find this trad. SF tale to slight for them. But i'd recommend it.


Just taken delivery of and reading "The Thackery T Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric & Discredited Diseases edited by Dr. Jeff VanderMeer and Dr Mark Roberts.

Fans of Gaiman, Mieville, Moorcock take a look.

I'm reading my birthday gift book, "Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell: A Novel" by Susanna Clarke. I'm loving the book so far.

About to read The Treasured Ones by Eddings. Will let you know how it pans out.

Just finishing Double Eagle by Dan Abnett, if you like a sort of fighter pilot novel then its quite a good book, if not then its not for you. Ive enjoyed it as its made quite a change from my usual type of novel.
