Strangely, a recommendation from a friend.


They're making it into a movie with a pretty all star cast.

They're kids books, like Harry Potter, read a lot like Harry Potter, but are a lot more tongue in cheek, and it's a very, very quick read.

There are like.. 5 of them? I think..

Just finished a books-on-tape version of Terry Brooks "Magic Kingdom for Sale" via bpl's on-line audio book borrowing service.

Currently reading the hardback edition of Sheri S. Tepper "Singer from the Sea" from my personal library. I need to buy more hardbacks and start actually building a library worthy of the name.

I've just read the 8th book in The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith (seriously easy reading), now I'm tackling:
Vikram Seth's A Suitable Boy - approaching half way in this 1500 page epic. The State of Africa by Martin Meredith and Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky, and current audiobook is Born to Run: The hidden tribe, the ultra-runners, and the greatest race the world has never seen: The Rise of Ultra-running and the Super-athlete Tribe by Christopher McDougall.

I'm not bookish by any means but am easily absorbed into so many topics - could do with a Kindle really. For those in the UK it's actually far cheaper to get books from Play.com's PlayTrade - I've not paid more than £2.50 delivered for any of the above:))
