Books you are currently reading?

I'm currently reading the Shrine by James Herbert,



Only have a few story books around, It's ok i guess, nothing special,

Theirs a book called "astech" or something along them lines, I don't know how its spelt or who its written by so i can't find it, If anyone can correct me i'd be very pleased and +rep.

Also if anyone could recommend me some good adventure books, I'd be very grateful.

Just finished "The Rats" by James Herbert, saw the so called film years ago and gave the book ago, glad I did, much better than a movie.

Not sure what next, was given "The Jester" by James Patterson to try

I finished reading Dune for the second time a couple of weeks ago, it's an excellent book.

Currently reading A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson.

The novel I'm reading at the moment is The Passage by Juston Cronin



I never thought I would find a book with the word vampire in the description that I would actually be interested in reading. When I finish my Coursework I may have time to finish it.

For light reading:

How Hard Can It Be? (World According to Clarkson 4)



Almost finished it.

Currently rereading:
Chaos - James Gleick
Taming the Infinite - Ian Stewart

Currently reading:
Archimedes Revenge - Paul hoffman
The Greatest Show on Earth - Dawkins

Too much non-fiction, I blame applying to uni.

Three of them are really interesting but chaos is a big book and quite repetative although it is interesting too.
