Well it kept me up till 1am three nights running, so yes I'd say a good old Stephen King page turner. Enjoyed it.

Just finished Carlos Ruiz Zafon's 'The Angel's Game'. First time I've read a modern book that was originally not written in English. Absolutely gripping but maybe due to the translation very hard to read quickly. I like to read a book in 2 days top, struggled with this one. Very good, supernatural crime-ish story set in early 20th century Barcelona. Pants ending though, a bit Koontz like.

Didn't really get on with that one for some reason, but really enjoyed his "The Shadow of the Wind".

Just a few pages into it, seems typical Young, rambling but interesting.



Just started this - enjoying it alot.

Reading Mission Earth, some of it for the second time. Gave up after the fourth volume about 20 years ago. Onto volume five at the moment. Definitely too much repitition and filler now, but there's still great charm to this monstrous piece of pulp, certainly in the first two books.

By Ben Miller - particle physics student turned comedian (as in Armstrong and Miller) - really good read for a dumbass like me
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

I've got several dozen books waiting on shelves and in boxes that I've picked up over the years. I should probably be more realistic about my intentions to get around to reading them and simply donate them to Cancer Research now.

The first book is a real monster and I remember really being thrilled by it's sheer scope when I read it - must be 20+ years ago. One of those epics I've always meant to revisit - The Magician being another one and some of the Piers Anthony stuff from back then. I guess they'd not be quite as memorbale reading them again now though.

About 2/3 of the way through The Road, pretty bleak, but good.

Read this excellent history of Venice and its medieval trade empire over Christmas.
