* Bit like films and TV shows only you have to imagine what is going on in your head instead of it being projected on to a screen. Sometimes books become films and TV shows.


Any readers on here? I apologise for the above, but I'm getting it in before the "reading seems like too much work", and "its made up so why bother" comments.

Few I have recently read:

The Lovely Bones - Pretty morbid. Centres on a young girl that is raped and murdered and looks down on her family and murderer from heaven. Peter Jackson made it in to a film - 8/10

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time - About an autistic teenager who sets out to find out who murders his neigbours dog. - 10/10

Now I have decided to read War & Peace. Just felt I had to, was only 1.95. After that Lord of the Rings

Not sure if this thread will take off!

Frankie Boyle's book.

I found it (and subsequently him) a peculiar and weird try-hard.

I have got to chapter 6 of 'The greatest show on earth'.

For some reason I only read when I am on a train or a plane. Just can never get into a book when I am at home, no idea why.

One of the best things I've read recently.

A short history of nearly everything by bill Bryson is excellent as is Inside by John hoskison.

The blind watchmaker is an excellent read. As is a brief history of time.

Currently reading one called 'Sh*t my Dad says' which is very funny.

Other books I highly rate are:

Scar Tissue - Anthony Kiedis autobiography.
Addict.
Marching Powder.

Marching Powder is probably the best book I've ever read, absolutely incredible true story about a British drug smuggler jailed in San Pedro prison in La Paz, Bolivia.

The swimming pool chapter with the rapists is unbelievable.

I went to La Paz in the summer of 2009 but there was a video released on the internet which caused a lot of controversy in Feb 2009 so they temporarily stopped the tours so I didn't manage to get in. It was confirmed in April 2010 that the tours are running again though. Absolutely gutted I missed out.
