Dan Brown's inferno.
No-one took my hints for my birthday last year, so I forked out the princely sum of £3 and bought a copy from Tesco yesterday.
I'm on chapter 6 so far.
This is no great feat of reading; each chapter appears to be about 3 pages long.  ::)

I've not read that one.
I've read all his others, but I'm not a fan of his work

I just finished The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne.  Very interesting read.
Now I'm back to Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.  I've vowed to finish that book even if it kills me.

   Good luck with that.  It killed me.

Ah, so you've joined me in the ranks of the undead?  That explains so much! ;)

  And yet so little.

  I'm ploughing away through Friedrich Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zarathustra.  Very heavy going from an obvious nutter.

Three Men in a Boat (to Say Nothing of the Dog) by Jerome K Jerome.

  Stephen King- Full Dark, No Stars.   A damned sight more cheery than bloody Nietzsche.

   Ray Meats - My Outdoor Life.  God, but he comes across as pompous.  He flushed out Raoul Most, you know.  Oh yes he did.  Moat had 'stepped in his world'  ( some woods), and 'crossed a line' and 'now it was going to end'.  What a crock of old bollocks.

Lies of Locke Lamorra, by Scott Lynch.
I finally have the last book in the trilogy, and I need to re-read before starting it

   Are they any good?

I like them, I like the language the Author uses in them. I think it would make a good film, with some obvious tweaks.

I'm just hope he hasn't forgotten how to write, there was a very long gap between the 2nd and 3rd books. I'd given up hope of it ever being done.

   They look promising.  I could do with some new books.

Bill Bryson- America one year 1927, fascinating book, it's the year Lindbergh flew the Atlantic
