    I've just finished World Without End by Ken Follett - the follow up to the awesome Pillars of the Earth.

    1100 pages set in the 14th century - so good that I read it cover to cover in two days!

    I've just started My Enemy's Cradle by Sara Young - the story of a half jewish girl living in Nazi occupied Holland.

    I've just finished "the Lost Rivers of London" and I'm now in the middle of Puckoon (for the thousandth time). Genius!
     
  3. Just reading, for the second time, a book about the home front in the Second World War (can't remember the title or the authour). Very interesting.

    21 CFR Part 820 Quality System Regulation.

    Much rather carry on reading Lords & Ladies by Terry Pratchett though. Far more entertaining.

    Tim Krabbe's The Rider a little slower than I thought it would be but its not bad.

    Sun Tzu's Art of War. Strangely useful in the work environment.

    Home Guard Training Manual. Found as a reprint in a garden centre litrature section. Should I ever wish to sandbag the veg plot then I know just where to look to find out.

    Robin Hobb's Fool's Errand. A nice read.

    La Víctima (Spanish version of "Final Victim" by Stephen J. Canell)
    An absolutely shoot ripoff of the Silence of the Lambs/Hannibal Lector books.

    Only reading it to improve my Spanish, which it is doing (and the book was free!)

    Just having worked my way through Louis be Berniere's South American trilogy, and toyed with a couple of Saki short stories, I'm tackling John Irving's "Until I find You" again...

    Do! It is equally as good as the first book and set in the same town. The historical detail is superb.
