....some Mitch Albom books - rather good. Someone mentioned him to me in passing so ordered a few last week and they arrived today - almost half way through one of them already which I started a few hours ago whilst supposed to be doing some work !! ' Tuesday's With Morrie '

I've recently started reading the Sharpe series by Bernard Cornwell. Instead of goin in release/published order I'm goin in order of when they're set. They're an excellent read and Bernard Cornwell is quite a descriptive writer and does well to keep the reader's interest.

Finished reading the Andy McNab 'Nick Stone' series earlier in the year and am currently waiding my way through DUNE. Currently on the second book of the Butlerian Jehad Trilogy, so got quiet some way to go with this series yet.
I've got some Bernard Cornwell books set during the 100 year war and I agree he is a very good a discriptive historical writer. Apparantly he has some books set around ancient Egypt that I want to track down at some point.

Mitch Albom.com - Tuesdays With Morrie
...Tuesdays with Morrie began as a modest labor of love to help pay some of Schwartz’s medical bulls
I'm currently on with Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Apparently Azincourt is a good read but I've got too many Sharpe books to work through first.

I'm currently smashing my way through The Servant of the Empire by Raymond E Feist & Janny Wurts, it's an epic trilogy which has everything I want from a book. Political intriegue, different cultures, war/battles/fighting as well as a bit of romance and the occasional bout of hot steamy passion, no details are spared either.

i am currently reading The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, i am rather enjoying it. My girlfriend is an English Teacher and has a closet full of books she has recommended to me. Have recently read No Time For Goodbye by Linwood Barclay and it was excellent. Have a couple more of his books in the pile which i am looking forward to getting to read

Just finished "A Web of Air" by the criminally under-rated YA author Philip Reeve. Probably go with China Mieville's "The City The City" next.

I'm glad to see there are still a load of us who do read - plus once I have finished my latest batch I can go back to this thread and pick up some ideas on what to move onto next !!

Read the trilogy 3 or 4 times over the last 10+ years, absolutely awesome.

I have just read Aberystwyth Mon Amour and Don't Cry for Me Aberystwyth by Malcolm Pryce.
The author has a fantastic imagination and has created a wonderful fantasy world set around Aberystwyth.
The style is very Raymond Chandler but very Welsh...brilliant!

Also read this very good book; Rupture by Simon Lelic which was penned by a mate of mine. About a shooting in a high school...........
