    I saw this and thought that someone else had a copy of "Skallagrigg", one of my all-time favourite books. Been trying to track down an electronic version to keep it with me at all times, but it seems to be unavailable.

    Anyway, current reading: "The Secrets of Pain" (a Merrily Watkins thriller, not some pervy "Shade of Grey" trash), probably to be followed by "Goblins vs Dwarves" by the criminally under-rated Philip Reeve. Also got a couple of Doctor Who ebooks on the go: "The Angel's Kiss" by 'Melody Malone' for when I'm waiting for the missus and "Summer Falls" by 'Amelia Williams' as her bedtime story.

    The last book I read was Tubes Behind The Scenes At The Internet by Andrew Blum. I found it very interesting.

    Just read "Itch" by Simon Mayo - yes, that one off Radio 2. Definitely a kids' book, but a really good one. Now reading "Genius - Richard Feynman and Modern Physics" by James Gleick. Did anyone see "The Fantastic Mr Feynman" on the Beeb a couple of weeks ago? One of my all time heroes and a true genius.

    Damn. No. I'll have to go looking for that. Have you read his own book, "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!". Short but sweet.

    Currently I'm reading Ian Rankin's, Standing in Another Man's Grave. Rebus post retirement. Like someone else in the thread (sorry, can't remember who), I'm struggling with books at the moment. I've only read one this year - can't seem to get into anything.

    "First Men In The Moon" - HG Wells. Which I'll follow with "The World Set Free", the second story in the anthology, and the one I bought it for.
