Finally got around to reading Making Money - a mere two years after buying it. It's up there among Pratchett's best in recent years, but still a bit too flabby to be put among his absolute best.

Think I held off after the crashing snorefest that was Monstrous Regiment

Currently got two books seriously on the go:

 

Rupert Everett - Red Carpets And Other Banana Skins

 

Simon Busfield & Paul Owen - The Wire Re-up

 

 

And a couple of others that I am ploughing through a little more slowly and half-heartedly:

 

Selina Hastings - The Private LIves Of Somerset Maugham

 

Orlando Figes - A People's Traged: The Russian Revolution 1917-1924

Jeez-us. That's a list to take you far away from everyday cares if ever there was one. Escapist not in your vocabulary, charles?

 

I've finally downloaded some Philip K Dick books to my Kindle so I have Minority Report on the go with The Prince and Shaum's Outline of Chinese Grammar.

Stephen Fry. it was a Christmas pressie otherwise I would have binned it after 10 pages, a complete crock of sh*t, I'vebeen drip feeding it in short bursts. For a highly intelligent man who's led such a chequered life he's a f*cking dullard in print.

Reading a few different things at the moment:

 

Why England Lose & Other Curious Football Phenomena Explained by Simon Kuper & Stefan Szymanski - A moneyball take on English football. An interesting read but nowhere near as good some of Kuper's other stuff

 

Parrot & Olivier in America by Peter Carey. Disappointing so far which probably explains why I haven't finished it.

 

News of a Kidnapping by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. A brilliant piece of journalism. Cannot recommend it enough after reading it three times in the last couple of years.

 

Awake in the Dark by Roger Ebert. Possibly the greatest popular film critic. His web stuff is also pretty much the best I've seen from any journalist.
