I'm working my way through Peter F. Hamilton's Void Trilogy.

I finished book 1 last week, The Dreaming Void, and am now on book 2  - The Temporal Void.
Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

I'm working my way through the Harry Potter series.
I have read chapters to my kids at bedtime, listened to huge chunks on long car journeys to keep them quiet but I have never read a whole book from start to finish.  I'm just starting the Goblet of Fire.

Had to stop my Harry Potter adventures as I have caught up with my youngest and she wont let me read beyond her.

So I read The Martian over the weekend at Centre Parcs.

Ecclesiastical History of the English People - Bede

It appears that the NHS could be greatly helped if people drank water which had held relics of the saints and were surrounded by Bishops and Monks praying for them. It worked wonders 1,300 years ago :)

David Millar - The Racer, the inside story of life on the road.

Think you have to be a touch mad to be a pro Road Race Cyclist. That or a Doper.

Speaking of Dopers, I've also just read: Racing through the Dark: The fall and rise of David Millar
