I usually have more than one book on the go at any one time, so my current list is:

 

*'Scott of the Antarctic' by David Crane;

 

*'Stalin a Biography' by Robert Service;

 

*'The Great War for Civilisation The Conquest

of the Middle East' by Robert Fisk; and

 

*'Cloudstreet' by Tim Winton

 

Highly recommend each one.

am currently working my way through my agatha christie books. the last one i read was curtains:-poirots last case.

 

next on the list will either be third girl or the mysterious mr quinn.

 

once i have finished those, sometime during the next week or so i will have a look at some of the books that i have been given to me by my uncle. most of these are about the second world war the rest being historical ones dealing with the last 100 years or so.

Letter from America by Alistair Cooke. I like it because, as the title says, its a series of short essays. As you probably know Alistair Cooke broadcast his weekly Letter from America on the BBC for 58 years and gave an insight on the happenings on that continent long before the age of satellites gave us instant news. A good read. Excellent at bedtime. :P

Have you read Hells Angels by Hunter S. Thompson? It's quite a good read, he hangs round with Sonny Barger in the book and gives amazing insight into the overly stereotyped image of the Hells Angels.
