a friend just gave me Jo Brand's book, looking forward to that.
 
Half way thru Sharon Osbournes, she's a bit crude isn't she, and that's coming from broad-minded me!!! (or maybe i'm becoming narrower of mind, as i get older....lol)

Just coming t the end of Angelology, it is a nice read and quite a good story. It basically covers the same type of story lay out as a lot of psudo-histroric mystery novels such as Dan Brown.

I'm reading comedienne Linda Smith's Biography (Driving Miss Smith).  It was written by her partner shortly after she died

Abandoned all my other books, as bought and read Patrick Swayze's book by him, and a couple of introductory paragraphs by his wife Lisa Haapeniemi
Very sad, now as obviously he died last year, but an enjoyable read, about his life growing up as an athlete/dancer/cowboy  etc..in Texas.

I've given up with the Mary, Queen of Scots biography and am onto The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory. I've pretty much just watched the whole story in series 4 of The Tudors but I can't get enough anyway.

I am now reading Warwick Davis's Autobiography Size Matter Not - I'm really enjoying it so far.  He's completely bonkers but fantastic at the same time.

I quite fancy the Patrick Swayze one as well.

i'm two thirds of the way through the beautiful, magical and almost fairytale-like "The Girl with Glass Feet", by Ali Shaw.

Recommend it very highly

I'm on the last third of 'Gentlemen and Players' by Joanne Harris.

Bit of a departure for her, her stories are always set in France but this one is about an English public school. Also her first thriller too. 
Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.

Have borrowed 'To Kill a Mockingbird' from a friend.  Funny really, I've known her for so long and a short while ago I told her that since I'd never read it I thought that I should, then she told me that it was her favourite book ever !!

I now have a well thumbed, much read copy in my posession, which I am working my way though.  Anyone here read it?

Wonderful book Thess

I have this morning finished Middlemarch. Meh, left me a bit cold for much of the book. But I'm intrigued to see the recent-ish TV adaptation and see what they made of it.

I'm currently doing a 19th century novel course with Open Uni so have recently (in the last 4 weeks) read Northanger Abbey, Jane Eyre, Dombey and Son and Far from the Madding Crowd. On to Germinal today...

I am now reading Janet Evanovich - Two for the Dough.  Funny read.  I've read it before - its from a set of books of which I've only read the first six..... There's 15 altogether. Shocked

I have just ordered the new Diana Gabaldon book - the illustrated version of Outlander or Cross Stitch. It was only published last month.

I discovered I can order books and some DVDs through Amazon UK (Deborah and James told me ages ago I should try them). They even convert the cost to Australian dollars before I pay. I can't wait for it to arrive. they send me emails to say when it was posted and when it should arrive. That's service.

I got the book on Friday - that's about a week.

This is my first graphic novel, like a comic book. It was interesting and a very abridged version of Cross Stitch or Outlander, although it is supposed to be from a different viewpoint.
