That Shades of Grey stuff............ how would you rate it, sexually speaking?

a) not arousing at all?
b) mildly exciting?
c) steamy and highly detailed?
d) wanking material?

Quite.

I won't read it - won't have time, so I suppose my question was pointless anyway..............

Millhouse- no definitely not a d- i'd say a B- very occasionally a C - once youve read one or two of the sex scenes its more an A - towards the end i was just skim reading the sex stuff to be honest- pretty repetitive really, bit of spanking and tieing up- and thats about it.

Lets just say if I lent you my book I dont think it would come back to me with the pages stuck together

It probably would Kitty - I don't read many books so it would be used as a coaster.

How about Famous Five ?
They brought heaps and heaps of enjoyment for me when I was a kid. When I bought a new Famous Five book, I would grab some bread and spread Nutella, then settle down to devour both . Ahhh....., the good old days...

It was Biggles for me........... looking back now, they probably should have been called "Racism for Boys" but I was blissfully unaware.............

Hotel K: The Shocking Inside Story of Bali's Most Notorious Jail

By Kathryn Bonella - brilliant read - but then I love jail stories.

Also Shantaram is amazing but a bit of a tome- you gotta like reading to read Shantaram.

Rereading Lawrence Durrell's "The Alexandria Quartet"

Recently read "Pronoia: The Antidote for Paranoia-How the Whole Word is Conspiring to Shower You With Blessings" by Rob Brezny. Love this book, wish I could buy a copy for everyone I know.

During my last holiday I found a book tucked in the front seat pocket that someone had left on the plane. It's called "The Life of Pi", a story about an East Indian boy and his survival tale of living on the sea for 277 days after his freighter was sunk while transporting his fathers zoo animals to Canada. It is a great book about survival of mind, body and spirit. Also, I just recently found out there will be a movie coming out at the end of the year based on Yann Martel's novel. If it's anything like the book it should be good entertainment for the whole family.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen ...

Yes, I know it's been made into a film but I haven't seen it and will not see it because the pictures in my mind are so glorious that nothing on-screen could ever compare.

If anyone does read this book I challenge them NOT to ascribe certain features/characteristics to, say, certain political figures. Not many books make me laugh out loud but this book did.

Agreed Shantaram is excellent.

I am now reading The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiessen.

Recently read Farenheit 451, Fight Club and the Game of Thrones books.

All good reads.
