The Blood Road by Stuart Macbride. Not really my usual reading but set in Aberdeen and surrounding area. Strange to find a book where the description of locations is accurate which is mostly what kept me reading it.

Currently re-reading The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. This'll be either the third or fourth time I've read the series. Dresden is a great character and the villains and supporting characters are inspired. Wizards, magic, fae, werewolves, monsters and vanilla humans. Fun to be had. In fact, I could sneak through a few pages now... :laugh:

Picked this up, at one of the Ward book-sales, to read pre-work, & on meal-breaks

As much as I like Bryson, this is hard-work in the opening chapters

Barring his present, 'The Body' book, it's probably the only I'd not read
I read that many years ago, pretty sure i enjoyed it. I've read almost all his books and have loved all of them, with the exception of Mother Tongue i tried to read recently. I just could not get into that and found it really boring, so boring in fact i couldn't finish it.

I read one of his books last year. I thought it was good. The detective had such a terrible day one day, I would have marked its anniversaries by taking the day off and not getting out of bed. Then he had an even worse one two days later, and an extremely unlikely one about two days after that. If it were me I'd be thinking 'What's going on? Am I in a coma dreaming all this?"

I am going to reread Talented Mr Ripley at some point soon. I finished another Patricia Highsmith book last week - 'Carol'. Good book; the Cate Blanchett film is very good, and identical to the book.

When I read old books (60's and earlier), I am always struck by how many characters smoke, and how much they smoke. Same with old films.
