I've finally finished Snow White and the Seven Samurai. Not Tom Holt's best book.

Sho / Flo - what's the difference?

that one put me off reading any more of his (I'd previously read Who's Afraid of Beowulf and found it brilliant) but maybe that's just an off one?

I started a blog but switched to Goodreads and haven't looked back. I don't always write a lot though.

Just finished a crime thing called Concrete Blonde - all the way through I was debating with myself about just stopping but in the end I wanted to know whodunnit.

Now I'm reading Past It Notes by Maureen Lipman, but i may discontinue this one. I'd totally forgotten how quickly her Guardian columns annoyed me.

I've looked at Goodreads, and I may sign up one day. Right now, the last thing I need is recommendations for books I may enjoy. Just glancing at it I've already spotted several candidates. I think I'll concentrate on reading what I've already got.

A Clash of Kings by George RR Martin. I've only just started - no-one's died yet.

Sho / Flo - what's the difference?

I'm reading a Feast for Crows - compared to the other three "GoT" books it's a bit plodding.

today I finished Through the Language Glass by Guy Deutscher but it wasn't as good as I was expecting it to be.

I'm just about to start Hard Work: Life in Low-Pay Britain by Polly Toynbee.

Cheerful Dragon

I've gone ahead with my book blog. (I may post a link to it when it's up and running the way I want it to look.) I don't want to blog reviews of book series out of order, so I've started Sharpe's Tiger as my tree-book and gone back to A Game of Thrones on Kindle. It's a good job I enjoyed the Sharpe series and the first few of the Song of Ice and Fire series first time round. Re-reading them is no hardship. I'll be doing the same with Jack Aubrey and any other books I have a series of.

I should have mentioned that any other books I have on the go *will* be finished. I just won't be spending so much time on those as on books I already know and have enjoyed.

Deadangel - Still not dead, just!

Currently reading The Isles: A History, by Norman Davies. Impressive in breadth, as always.
