Andy McDermott - Empire of gold. I've read the other 6 books and thought they were great bearing mind they are 100% fiction, I liked the two leads.

I've also read almost everything by Chriton, Deaver, Pratchet and Adams- all great authors.

Not reading anything at present, just finished the first book of Skullduggery Pleasent, which wasn't bad and I listened to the radio dramatisation of Terry Pratchett's Small Gods last week on iplayer (and downloaded Night Watch to listen to later on - love the cmdr Vimes stories).

Then you'll be glad to hear that the next (possibly last?) Discworld book will be another Vimes book.

Have just finished May Contain Traces of Magic and Blond Bombshell, both by Tom Holt. Magic was OK (not classic Holt), Bombshell was better (His first stab at sci-fi)

Currently 4 chapters into A Dance with Dragons. Awesome so far (if a little confusing at first, as it the beginning is concurrent with the last two books, so I was surprised that Sam was still at the wall, not down south with Gilly & Mance's baby son, starting his Maesters training...)

I should have got the e-book version though. In hardback form it weighs a ton, and it gives you arm ache when you read in in bed.

Tipping the Velvet - surprisingly good, very digestible, read half of it in a day but don't want to carry on reading now because I'm at the point in the story where I know, by the rules of storytelling, the central relationship is about to go tits up (well...tits up in the other sense, I mean >.>) and I'm such a romantic I don't want to see it. By balance alone the second half of the book is bound to be miserable, and miserable stories of interpersonal failure bore me.

The Stand by Stephen King - third of the way through, absolutely brilliant. I'd forgotten how good he can be/used to be. It's one of his first books, and really just fantastic so far.

It's a very 'yes or no' book. Some love it, some just can't get on with it. I was never bored, thought it was a great read.

Subjective.

The Happiness Equation.

Some kind of weird self-help book on the economics of happiness. Got it on a whim from the kindle summer sale, seems so far to be mostly common sense. Some interesting bits of research in it, mostly pretty blah.

It reminds me of Joyce, as far as I've gone it's a decent book. Although i can already tell it's a slow book.

Finished Bless me Ultima. Now that was a good book.

In the middle of Watership Down. Despite being a kid of the 80's I've never read this or seen the film all the way through. Really enjoying it so far - it's got classic written all over it.
