Default What Yer Reading?

When I arrived here I knew I had to find some sanity in the difficult first few months, so I went to bookshop and asked helpful staff member for recommendations on American fiction, he steered me to Chuck Palahniuk. bloody hell I am not easily shocked but has anyone read Choke, books were on 4 for 5 so I have more of him to read!! Currently reading the namesake by jhumpa lahiri bout a Bengali family settling in US - much more sedate. So what you reading?

hello there
sure those words aren't blurry from the booze yet

i'm reading Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, about a guy who was born a woman... same author as The Virgin Suicides (christmas present), and Life on Air by David Attenborough... if only it was so easy to get into the bbc these days...
Both are really good

I did find out about Jeffery Deaver on a similar thread a while back...and he was good....I just picked up a book at the library the other day...Mr Lucky by James Swain never heard of the author but hopefully it'll be good

Yeah, it's where they keep the free DVD's, CD's & there are these things called 'books' that you can use to prop up your wonky table, they come in all sorts of sizes, thickness & colour to match your furniture!
