Reading this, read it dozens of times but I keep coming back. Bill Bryson is by far my favourite author.

Currently working on Phantom, the next-to-last novel in the Sword of Truth series (don't judge it based on Legend of the Seeker!) And next up is Transformers:Exodus, the novel tying into the War for Cybertron game, both of which are the backstory for the new TF:Prime TV series.

I haven't read anything for over two years now, I think, apart from one book that we had to read for school (and it was pretty bad, as usual). But I won a Kindle 3 in a competition, and started loading it with books. I've started reading "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" in Dutch (Dutch title: "Mannen die vrouwen haten" aka "Men who hate women"), and I love it!

I usually prefer reading in English because most Dutch translations are quite bad, but since the book is originally Swedish I went with Dutch (my mother tongue). The plan is to read it in Swedish next year as part of my preparation for studying and working in Sweden for a year (and hopefully the rest of my life).

Trying hard to read Coin Locker Babies by Ryu Murakami at the moment. An excellent book by a favourite author of mine, but it's a bit heavy/depressing at times so I keep putting it down after only a few pages.

How does it compares to the likes of Mishima or Haruki Murakami?

I haven't got round to reading any of Haruki Murakami's stuff yet, but the only way I can describe CLB as is; Deep, harrowing and real.

Sounds pretty much like HM, and that's great. What book do you recommend as a starting point?

The first one I read was In The Miso Soup, followed by Piercing. They're not as hard going as CLB, and shorter so definitely a good place to start.

Seems interesting. I liked Archangel and Fatherland by Harris as well so I decided to see how his more recent works compare.

Re-reading 'Killing Lincoln' by Bill O'Reilly, an excellent and very well researched account of Lincoln's assassination and the events surrounding it.

Already have his next book, 'Killing Kennedy,' on order. Comes out in October.
