Nearly finishing Cowards Get Cancer Too by John Diamond. OMG the best but the most harrowing book I've ever read. I don't normally read this kind of thing (what I thought it would be) but I was transfixed from the start because I could psychologically relate to everything he conveyed. Very uncomfortable reading but at the same time 'enjoyable' and funny.

I'm reading The Polysyllabic Spree by Nick Hornby. A diary of the books he read over a year or so.

Completed book five (of twelve) ‘The Interesting Bits: The History You May Have Missed’ by Justin Pollard. Pretty funny but without looking things up I’m not sure how true these accounts are. Still fascinating to read though and the “chapters” are so short you can put it down and pick it up again easily. Interesting read for anyone who likes their history, especially the weird stuff.

Now on to reading 'Born Survivor: Bear Grylls’ by the man himself. I'm about two-thirds through. This is more like a survival guide and a “coffee-table book” but its bloody good with Bear’s opinions on things, diagrams, location photos, survival techniques, case studies and so on. Loving reading it!! As the review quote on the cover says, it’s a “Dangerous book for men!” .

Also bought ‘The Bourne Identity’ (by Robert Ludlum) and ‘The Hundred year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window & Disappeared’ (by Jonas Jonasson) to add to me list to read, as apparently I have to read a couple of novels to win this bet and these were the only ones that appealed to me. Clearly I didn't look very hard

My new audiobook is Cop to Corpse by Peter Lovesey, the 12th Peter Diamond mystery. Peter Diamond is my absolute favourite fictional detective and I like listening to the books on audio.

I'm currently reading The Man in the Picture by Susan Hill on my Kindle. It's a short gothic ghost story and is probably better suited to a bleak winter's night than mid-summer really.

Once that is finished I'll be starting the Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman's take on the Jungle Book. I really want his new book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, but can't justify buying it until i've read some more of the stuff that's already on my KIndle.

I tend to have a few books that I dip into and one book that is there to be very much read!

I am reading The Beckham Experiment.
It is about the very man himself. This book is ofcourse about him and the whole machine that is working behind him as he wanted to break into the States. Very business like and surprising what can go on behind the scenes.

I've got two books on the go at present - Hanging Hill by Mo Hayder, and Siege by Simon Kernick, which for some reason am not finding as gripping as I expected...

You know Sue, I've read the graveyard book and didn't click that it was based loosely around the jungle book but its so obvious now

Inferno - Dan Brown

I must be one of the few who hasn't read anything else he's done. In my head Robert Langdon is Tom Hanks.

Apparently Neil Gaiman had the idea for the book whilst watching his son happily bicycling around a graveyard. I spend far too much time reading about books. Goodreads et al are terrible time eaters.

Juggling three books at the minute. I'm reading Goodnight Mr Tom with my daughter, The Outsiders with my son and Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn in between.

Tell me about it, I spend a disproportionate amount of my time browsing what others are reading, I'm going to have to take a second job to fund my addiction
