Books - What do you recommend? / What are you reading?

Recommended Posts

So what books are you all reading at the moment?

 

I've just started reading Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Only two chapters into it so I can't really comment yet, but I've heard all good things of it so I have high expectations :P:)

Just started re-reading How The Dead Live by Will Self.

Really quite thought provoking and funny and freaky as well.

Not reading books but subscribed to New Scientist recently - some very cool articles in there - especially the canal in Russia and the road to the south pole

I'm re-reading the Goblet of Fire. I can't cope with any of this intellectual literature.

I'm halfway through Conversations with god, and I have bought about 8 books on Russian history from the Tsars to Rasputin, Lenin,Stalin, the revolutions up to modern day Russia, so I have plenty to keep me busy.

I have recently finished The Stone Monkey and Catch Me If You Can (I live with SLH73 and we share books!) and will be starting High Fidelity later on this evening. I've also got Twenty Four Party People by Tony Wilson to read after that!

At the moment I'm working my way through a series of books written by John D MacDonald. They are classic pulp fiction about a man called Travis MacGee who lives on a houseboat in Florida in the late 60's. He's a bit like a private eye but not really. Haven't read a better series of books in donkeys years. There's about 26 in the series and the first one is called The Deep Blue Goodbye and I read it in a day.
