What Are You Currently Reading?

Postby AmbientOne » Wed Jun 02, 2010 11:58 am

The Mr and me are sharing Storage Stories, so I'm filling in my inbetween time with old Pratchett Discworld books which I haven't read in a long time. More fluffy than the murder books my mam keeps lending me :D


What you lot reading?

I'm slowly - but surely - working my way through the Driving Standards Agency "Theory Test Handbook for HGV/LGC and PVC Drivers"... :shock:

But I like to read a chapter or two of David Peace's "1980" for some light relief... :wink:

I am reading a crappy chicklit book in order to bring me in line with the honeymoon next week. On which I will read, Storage Stories and Michael J Fox - Always Looking Up http://www.amazon.co.uk/Always-Looking- ... 009192264X

I require a new book for tonight. I need something light and fluffy, my mood is awful right now, I could kill someone if I wasn't so tired all the time :twisted:

I'd also love some more sleeping pills, but til the shrink calls it's book therapy for me!

As posted elsewhere, I am reading Storage Stories, and loving every bittersweet paragraph. When I have read that, I will return to my Tommy Cooper biography

Am amused how reading Jim Bob's material has affected my usual reading routine. I started reading Goodnight Jim Bob a few weeks ago, or so, and finished it whilst alternately reading something else - to begin with. Then it became critical and I couldn't put it down. I felt disappointed when it ended, but you can't continue something when you hit the end of the story! I will definitely be reading it again soon :wink:

Just finished 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' for the work book club. It was alright, though I'm not a reader of thrillers. It does read exactly like a book made to be a film, though. Good, twisty story but not particularly well written in any way. I've never before read a book which devotes 1/4 of a page to telling me the specification of a Mac the protagonist wants to buy!

It is a fascinating book by a wonderful lady. Well worth a butchers.

quite clearly not nearly enough it should have had at least a half page for that.

Just finished the trilogy, I liked them. It's a translation though, which could be why it reads more like a book made to be a film. I had to put up with the other half asking loads of stupid questions though so I gave up until I could have quiet time to get into them properly.

Started reading Jim's book the night of the Cambridge gig n have now passed it on to the other half who will take about 2 years to finish it (he never sits for more than a few minutes at a time)



P.s really liked Jim's book :)
