I'm about half way through one of the Brother Cadfael books by Ellis Peters. I've always enjoyed the TV series and thought it was about time i read some of the books. It's a gentle read and well written.|

I usually have several books on the go, fiction and non-fiction.|
Forged in Fury by Michael Elkins is about the Jewish resistance during the 2WW and the Nazi-hunting that went on afterwards.
Bottom Feeder is about the consequences of over-fishing.
The Scar by China Mieville, sort of mixture of alternative world/steampunk.
Started re-reading John Connelly's detective/murder novels too.
And in class, we're reading The Lorax. :)

RMG, forgot to add that my son is reading through my Cadfael collection at the moment. Watched the TV series and liked it a lot, moved on to the books.|

One True Thing by Greg Mathews. Very underrated author. He writes the best books.|
I am also reading a biography on Axl Rose from Guns-N-Roses. Pretty interesting!

I am reading "The Killer Angels", by Michael Shaara. It is about the battle of Gettysburg. Very interesting and readable. Historic fiction giving insight into the Union and Confederate generals and the battle itself.|

I've just started The Animals of Farthing Wood, a favourite of my wife from when her daughter was young. I remember seeing the TV series when my kids were growing up. A great story for youngsters.|

Half-way through 'court of the air' preparing to read all 3 of Stephen Hunt's books.|
Just finished Great Gatsby - good, not my idea of a classic.
Not long finished Jonathan Strange and Mr.Norrell - a truly great book.

I recently finished reading Charlotte Bronte's 'The Professor'. I was looking in the library for 'Wuthering Heights' which I'll be studying next year and this caught my eye instead. It was actually quite an interesting read and surprisingly understandable as some classics can be hard to keep up with. It was good and although I wouldn't call it the most polished book I've ever read, or the best, it is a good read for anyone who enjoys the classic writers. |

I recently finished "Wide Sargasso Sea", which I really liked. Today I'm reading a Georgette Heyer mystery called "Penhallow".|

Right now I'm reading "Angels and Demons" by Dan Brown. It's taking quite a while though, I'm to occupied with work and don't have too much free time on my hands.|

"The Dice Man" by Luke Rheinhardt. |
Pretty slow, but apparently it gets heaps better
Reply #618. Jul 16 09, 5:19 AM
I thought 'the dice man' depreciated as the book went on personally. The follow up book became so dreary I gave up on it.|
Just finished 'Slaughterhouse 5' - an excellent book.
Now reading 'The 13 and a half lives of Captain Bluebear' - very entertaining - a sort of hitch-hikers guide for bears in the fictional world of Zamonia (complete with lovely pictures).
