The "I am currently reading" thread

Recommended Posts

I got James Follett's final two books - Return of the Eagles and A Forest of Eagles for Xmas, both set in a German prisoner of war camp in the Lake District during WW2 and loosely based upon the Hardy Kruger movie "The One That Got Away".

Just finished 'The Guide to the Global Conspiracy' by Mr Icke, another fine 600 pager by Big Dave.

 

Am now getting stuck into Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell - anyone for a bit of 'thin-slicing'?

Re-reading "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings", by Mary Angelou. I forgot how much I enjoyed it the first time round. A tremendous read.

I'm currently reading "Red Seas Under Red Skies" by Stephen Lynch. It's the follow up to "The Lies of Locke Lamora" which was one of the best Fantasy novels i've read in years - and this one is also shaping up to be a very good read!

Ben Elton's Chart Throb:roll:

 

Already read it, but I picked it up again last night and couldn't put it down, not everyone's taste, but he really makes me chuckle:hihi:

Just finished Freakonomics by Levitt and Dubner - interesting outlook on data, statistics and economics, but a little repetitive. ; nearly finished Yacoubian Building by Alaa Al Aswany - a good holiday read, lots of short stories, some of which are a little shocking; and just started Half of A Yellow Sun by Adiche, gripping.

 

Just refound Ulysses by James Joyce, which I have half read; will make it a resolution to finish it.
