    I'm reading Three Hearts and Three Lions by Poul Anderson. Pretty good so far.

        A nice bit of light bedtime reading i see you've got there Kyrinn!!
        I finished the new Gaiman and it was excellent.
        Am just about to get involved in some old-school SF namely The Guardians Of Time by Poul Anderson.

          Just finished Timothy Mo's The Monkey King. A grand wee book, well worth the time spent I thought, though amazon has a strong like/hate split on the reviews. Not too sure what will be next.

            Not read that one Rothgo,but his Redundancy of Courage i read a while back and i thought it was superb.

                  Very near to the end of 'A Canticle for Leibowitz', and I really don't want it to end. Next up is 'Orbitsville' by Bob Shaw.

                    Couldn't get through the Poul Anderson as it was pants.
                    Like a lot of his stuff it just bores me rigid but at least i gave it a try!
                    I was reading it thinking ' even i could do better than this' and i couldnt read or write until i was in my late teens
                    Away to start The Last Fighting Tommy by Richard Van Emden about the amazing Harry Patch who i believe is/was the last WW1 veteran alive.

                      I've put MD down for a bit as The Barrytown Trilogy came in at the library yesterday. So, I've started The Commitments by Roddy Doyle. (Thanks Gov!)

                        No problem, Kevin. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

                            "The Subtle Knife" - Philip Pullman. Second volume of the "His Dark Materials" set. Supposed to be for readers 9-12 but some of the concepts and plot lines are pretty heavy stuff. Definitely a great read though.

                              I just finished "The Black Corrider" by our very own MM. Needless to say I am a bit disturbed by it. I think I may need a 1cc shot of Proditol (not to exceed 1 dose per day for 14 days)after reading that book.
