Am out of Pratchett (shock horror!) so am reading The Laughing Corpse by Laurell K Hamilton. Resisted the urge to buy The Salmon of Doubt today while was in town shopping with the other half. Am going to be good and wait for it to come out in paperback so it will actually fit on my bookcasesmiley - smiley

The Ghost of Polidari

I appear to be reading a short story selection by Dorothy L. Sayers, the title of which alludes me at the moment. 12 detective stories, some featuring Lord Peter Wimsey...

I finished Crime and Punishment. Went a bit stodgy in the middle but still worth reading.

Now started 'Bleak House' by Charles Dickens which is one of my all time faves. smiley - smiley

Still doing battle with The Great Game ... not using pubic transport means that I don't have time to indulge ...

Also reading Who's Afraid of Beowulf by Tom Holt ... very Dirk Gently it has to be said - most amusing!

Half way through Terry Pratchett's Moving Pictures.

This is the third Discworld book I have read and I have the feeling I am begining to get addicted.

A little lunchtime reading :

'Bomber Harris : His life and Times
(The Biography of Marshal of the Royal Air Force Sir Arthur Harris, Wartime Chief of Bomber Command)'
by Henry Probert.

Have to say I don't read biographies usually, but I am enjoying it...

Titania (gone for lunch)

'The Songlines' by Bruce Chatwin

I came across it much in the way I came across the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy - hearing about it, reading about it, stumbling across the title high and low, until finally deciding that I have to find out what it's all about...smiley - bigeyes

Toby Young's "How To Lose Friends and Alienate People".

It describes his downward spiral as a contributing editor to Vanity Fair in New York in the late 1990s. Very well written and very funny indeed. I couldn't bear to put it down, and managed to read about 80% of it yesterday until I got too tired and just had to go to bed smiley - sadface
