    Just finishing up reading Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. Not done yet but it ranks among the favourites.

    Lee Childs at the moment in order. Like Peter James, James Patterson, Chris Ewan and waiting for new L J Ross book downloading at end of month. Cant beat a good thriller to get your imagination working

    'Microcosmic God' a very old classic sci-fi yarn that's available free online, it's only a short story but worth a read.

    Have just finished reading the Freddy Mercury biography and a light-hearted novel about midwives in the 1950s. Next on my list are a Victoria Holt period novel and William Golding's Lord of the Flies ( found my old book at my daughter's house: she'd nicked it so i nicked it back to read again! )

    I've just read 'Doctor Zhivago'. Now I love the movie, which is rightly regarded as a cinematic masterpiece staring the handsome Omar Sharif and Julie Christie in a role any actress would die for, but the book was a massive disappointment. I know Pasternak was a poet but endless pages describing the beauty of snow, numerous characters with unpronounceable names made for a difficult read. The book may well have won the Nobel prize for literature and perhaps I'm a philistine but I could not recommend it to anyone.

    Just finished 'Vox', because one of my 6th-formers wants to use it for coursework. It was rather good - a 'Handmaid's Tale' in the characters' own homes. Terrifyingly possible!

    My last one was 'I, Partridge - We Need to Talk About Alan'. Hysterically funny, as one would expect from that nitwit.

    1Q84. Haruki Murakami. I'm hoping it'll bend my mind just like The Wind-up Bird Chronicle did.

    I'm currently reading 'Ice cold in Alex' I'm surprised how different it is to the film, but I suppose this is often the case.

    I’m reading a book called the secret orphan. It’s a pretty good book

    I've only just got round to reading Wuthering Heights. Must admit, I'm having trouble accepting that Heathcliff is a Scouser :rolleyes:

    Justin Cronin's The Passage.
    Not really my thing and a bit creepy but well written so struggling to put it down
