RE: What are you reading?

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.

RE: What are you reading?

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:

RE: What are you reading?

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.

RE: What are you reading?

'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.

If the shoes don't fit, change the horse.

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:

RE: What are you reading?

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.
