I finished my afternoon read: Guy Martin's latest book Dead men don't tell tales the other day. It's a good read and very similar style to his previous stuff.

So in the afternoon's I have started reading The Triumph of the Sun by Wilbur Smith...which I picked up on a campsite when we were in Spain.

I am 90% through the Frank Herbert Chapterhouse Dune on the kindle for my night-time read. It's been hard going in places but tbf has come good at the back end as all the threads are pulled together.

I am still on Ian Rankin "The Beat Goes On". Didn't think I would like it as it is all short stories but I am enjoying it. He gets involved in a case and solves it pretty quickly :)

We used to like the old readers digest condensed books in the 70s
I have some hard cover Readers digest at home, bought a job lot from a charity shop some years ago . I think there are a few I still haven't read.
At the moment I'm skipping many pages of a book because it's so drawn out, it's called I Spy I saw her die. The beginning was OK but now I skip half a chapter and can still pick up the story because it's just a load of nothing new to fill pages. Free on the kindle of course.

I've finished Ian Rankin's Exit Music - very good. A German woman gave it to me on my travels. I can't imagine me picking the book up in French as an improvement exercise. I'm not bad at picking up the gist of information boards etc but I think I'd find an entire book exhausting.

I finished Chapterhouse Dune and it came good in the end thankfully.

I have now moved on to Hood by Stephen Lawhead which is a new/different take on the Robin Hood legend. It's good stuff

Still on Plato, nearly finished, one of the funniest autobiographies I've read so far, I sort of slow down when I get near to the end of a good book, I like to enjoy them over a few weeks anyway, what's the rush.

I read his book Republic whilst at Uni...no laughs in there. Quite heavy stuff really...

I finished reading The Triumph of the Sun by Wilbur Smith the other day. What a cracking read it was too and would make a superb film (in the mould of a Lawrence of Arabia-type epic).

The latest afternoon book is Down Under by Bill Bryson. I read it years ago when it came out and he always raises a smile for me.

Nah, he attempts to be funny but fails badly, it's short silly chapter are quite tedious, so I have started a biography on Oliver Reed, seems ok so far, it might be interesting to see behind the man who loved to shock, I bet he was quite tame away from the public eye.

I finished Hood by Stephen Lawhead but there are 2 other books in the series which I have, so am looking forward to reading them. Have started The Bourne Betrayal by Robert Ludlum now: gripping stuff!

I finished The Bourne Betrayal by Robert Ludlum (or more correctly by his replacement writer presumably after he died) which was a rip snorter of a thriller; and have just started Scarlet by Stephen Lawhead.
