No way am I trying to read that. It was produced in the 15th century. I'll ask Brucie if he has any info.

Never heard of it before but looks amazing.

It's probably just the scribblings of a mad bastard and as you're here you won't have to go far to find more of that.

I'm reading The Graveyard book by Neil Gaiman (the American God's novelist). Turns out it's a reimagining of The Jungle book but about a real kid who lives with the dead in a graveyard. Tough start but turning out to be a cracking read.

'Timbuktu' by Paul Auster is a great read. Nice little book to take away on holiday.

Just one of those books that give you a lift. No bad thing these days.

Trying to ween myself off Murakami books at the moment so I may give it a try.

I'm still trying to ween myself of the Famous Five books. I'm sure there's something funny going on between Dick and George.
And why is Uncle Quentin so secretive?

Never read any Famous Five but I reckon there's lots that went on in kids books back when we were young. That shoemaker's wife kept awfully quiet about those elves that visited every night!

What about Swallows And Amazons? 

Titty indeed. Is that a name for any decent girl.

Nevil Shute and Howard Spring books are real and fantasy in equal measure. As are HE Bates short stories.

My Dad loved an old fashioned western,Zane Grey and the like. Can't say I'm a big fan of the genre myself.

I'm still on holiday which is when I find time to read and chill out so I'm on my 9th book in the last 3 weeks and should finish that today as it's raining here in serifos. Started off light with a few jo nesbos/harry hole followed by Simon toynes sanctuary/fall/tower series and now I'm working through a few mysteries

If you enjoy mysteries, wanders, can I recommend the author Robert Goddard? If you haven't read any, I can specifically recommend Past Caring, and Into the Blue.

I'll refund your money if you don't like it! Promise you'll stick with it...bit of a slow start, but more twists than a twisty thing on a very twisty day in twisty city.

Will do but currently reading the detectives daughter by Lesley Thomson - it's creepy.

Good man. Auster is a great writer. More popular in Europe than his native USA though.
