Just finishing a rather awesome booke called "Still Alice" by Lisa Genova. About a woman who is diagnosed with Alzheimers - quite topical, as our small town has two incredibly talented women who have also recently been diagnosed.|

Recently started reading "Night Over Water" by Ken Follett. Haven't gotten to far into it, due to a a crazy work schedule the past couple of weeks, but am hoping to soon have more time to enjoy this novel.|

I'm re-reading Edward Rutherfurd's 'London' (similar format to his 'Sarum' and 'Russia'), which is a history of London. I'm also reading John Shelby Spong's 'The Sins of Scripture'.|

I alternate between:|
Torah, Sefer ha-Zohar, Sefer Yetsirah and Sefer ha-Bahir.
These are among other Jewish apocryphal texts I explore from time to time.
Every now and then I re-read Tolkien's "Silmarillion".

MrHulot, how's it going so far? I read "On the Road" when I was in my late teens or perhaps early twenties, and can't remember much about it except thinking it was self-indulgent and sweaty. |
Lorvanwa - interesting combination - Tolkien's fantasy world and Kabbalah! They haven;t got anything in common, have they?
I'm working my way through Boris Johnson's "Life in the Fast Lane," a collection of car reviews. It's great fun, easy to dip into a chapter at a time, and perfect for reading on trains. Recently I seem to have lost the ability to concentrate on books, which is a shame, because I spent most of my life with my nose buried in one, in preference to eating, or sleeping, or bothering with television, or... doing homework!

Still slogging my way through "Night Over Water". I've read half of the novel, and am having a tough time getting interested. Definitely not one of Ken Follett's best works!|

I'm reading "The Alloy of Law" by Brandon Sanderson. It's a Mistborn book set 300 years in their future, about our 1800's.|

I am reading for the second time a book called "The Reckoning," by Charles Nicholl. It's about the alleged murder of Christopher Marlowe. |
