Better than his Dad IMO!
Just finished Cloud Atlas, think I missed something :?
Country of origin - England not United Kingdom.
Starting to make my way through the Sherlock Homes stories. I'll probably read the ones most relevant to the Sherlock TV series first.

I love the Sherlock Homes stories. They're some of the best that I've ever read.

I have just finished reading a few books the Lt Jaqueline Daniels series by J A Konrath. Just started the Whiskey Sour thriller.... nice light reading.
On a long term read I am reading Hanes Cymru by John Davies.... started on hols but needs concentration as it's a beast of an academic book.
I am considering either I know why the caged bird sings by Maya Angelou or I Hela Cnau by Marion Eames for the future .
Excellent idea for the thread, keep it up. :cheer:
My book of the year: Stoner by John Williams
Heh. I seem to have put Holmes on the backburner. I'm currently reading Elizabeth Smart's book. Not usually my kind of thing, but I'm aware of some of the very cynical things that have been said about her kidnapping.
Jonathan Meades. Museum Without Walls.
Kim Philby. My Silent War.
"We are currently awaiting the loading of our complement of small lemon-soaked paper napkins for your comfort, refreshment and hygiene during the journey."
'Fighter Heroes of WWI' by Joshua Levine. It's an excellent semi-diary type about the pioneering flyers of the 'Air Battalion of the Royal Engineers, later became RFC.
This afternoon I found, tucked away on the PC, a self-penned treatment about a fictional village during 1940, called 'In Their Hands We Trust'. It's rather better than I initially thought.

About 2/3 of the way through Dan Brown's 'Inferno'.
It's OK, but not drawing me in like 'Angels & Demons' did. :?
Counting the days/weeks/months until the new Jack Reacher :pray:
I probably need to go outside for a bit.

I think I'm about 14 or 15 books behind you!! I'm just ploughing my way through The Visitor
My problem is I can never remember which book is which. Is 'The Visitor' the one with the bathtubs full of paint?
I liked 'One Shot' a lot, but think 'Persuader' is my fave Reacher book.
Having finally read Hydrogen Sonata, I am re-reading all of the Iain M Banks and am currently half way through Consider Phlebas
