    Goldfinger's good. One of my favourite Fleming novels, behind OHMSS.

    "Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action." One of my favourite literary quotes.

    I've started Rivers of London by Ben Aronnovitch. A few pages in and I like his writing style already.

    I've enjoyed what I've read of that series so far.

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    The Martian. Although, having seen the movie on Sunday, I know how it all pans out now. Nevertheless, it's a good read.

    If noone's made a start on this series yet, it's time you did.

    Pirate King by Laurie R. King for me at the moment.

    Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman, whom no one on a Doctor Who forum will naturally have heard of...

    As alluded to elsewhere, I've started The Magicians by Lev Grossman.

    Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams. Enjoying it more than I did when I was 12.

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    I still enjoy it as much as I did years ago.


    And the book, Stuart.

    Finishing up the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay. Up next, probably The Case Against Sugar, by Gary Taubes. Also thinking about re-reading the Dirk Pitt series by Clive Cussler. I have a bunch that I read years ago and then stopped for some reason. It would be cool to re-read them and then buy the ones I never collected.

    Just finished Grace Jones' autobiography ("I'll Never Writer My Memoirs") which was as eclectic, bizarre and revealing as you would expect. From her harsh upbringing in colonial Jamaica to the hedonism of the 1970's in New York and Paris, it was fascinating.

    Next up is The Ocean At The End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, which I've got fairly high hopes for.
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    Just finished Peter Davison's autobiography. No major revelations or surprises in there, but a nice, easygoing read which I rattled through in a few days. I didn't realise his wife was an actress, and although I'm sure she's done lots of other things I most recognise her from an episode of Dear John years ago!!
