    I'm reading "Wiped!" by Richard Molesworth. It's an unputdownable book, but printed on very cheap and nasty paper.

    It is. I could easily wolf it down whole, but there's just not enough time! I had to choose last night between sleep or reading on. It's hard to put down, as this has always been one of my favourite subjects.

    The Agatha Raisin book was a quick read (like all the others in the series) so now I'm just starting Simon Pegg's autobiography- Nerd Do Well.

    I'm reading 'The Master and Margarita', a classic Russian novel from the 1940's.

    Still waiting for a mysterious stranger dressed in black with a neat beard and a Tissue Compression Eliminator to turn up.
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters, A friend sent me it because she wants me to discuss the ending with her asap. No pressure then!

    Nearing the end of 'Sylvia's Lovers' by Elizabeth Gaskell- not quite as racy as it sounds, but it's a good story of love, deception and revenge set during the Napoleonic wars It feels almost like an opera with three strong characters in a love triangle.

    I started 'The Sword of Shannara' by Terry Brooks. Might be good!

    Stick with it , Steve. The first trilogy is definitely aimed at a younger audience, but the later series have a much more grown up feel about them.

    I'm desperately trying to finish various library books that I can't renew because other people have reserved them

    Dr Yes by Colin Bateman. It's been very amusing so far!

    I'm sticking with The Sword of Shannara for now, but 130 pages in and the best words to describe it are 'abysmal' and 'derivative'. It's the second blandest fantasy novel I've ever read, almost on a par with JK Rowling.

    Mary Ann in Autumn by Armistead maupin. It's like meeting up with friends you haven't seen for years but know really well- there's just an instant comfort in reading about these characters. Lovely.

    I keep hearing good things about these books, I'm going to have to try one. A nice, cosy Christmas read?

    The Pythons by The Pythons. It's a quite fascinating insight in to how tv was made in the 60s and 70s, but I have to admit to being quite jealous at how easy it was for them to get on tv in the first place - back in those days, going to Oxford or Cambridge seemed to guarantee you work for the Beeb!
