I'm reading The Sand Pebbles by Richard McKenna. It went on to be made into a film of the same name starring Steve McQueen.

I really liked that, with all the references back to "The Shining", but then I like a lot of Stephen King's books. When he is good, he's very good.

Audiobooks are great. Have this tiny Sansa Clip+ mp3 player, always filled with audiobooks. When doing something in the house, taking a walk, going somewhere, I love having someone telling me a good story :-)

Reclaiming History: The assassination of President John F. Kennedy, by Vincent Bugliosi,

Its massive - over 1600 large pages and the end notes come in a DVD attached to the inside of the back cover!

The title reflects the authors oft-stated view that Oswald acted alone, based on 20 years of research. He dissects the facts and evidence, the Warren commissions investigation and findings and pretty much everything that has been written or claimed about the assassination since.

I can't put it down, but still have 1200 pages or so to go!

Now I've finished my 'academic read' for the book club, I am working my way through the Hornblower series, which are very cheap on the kindle* and a cracking read. :D
They are much less about swashbuckling and more about the inner emotions of command, which I am really enjoying. There is much to resonate, even over the many years since Forrester wrote. :thumbup:

* other brands of reading device are available :lol:

Trying to read King of Sport about Bernie Ecclestone, I put it down a couple of months ago and can't seem to pick it back up.

The last good book I read was Go Like Hell, the true story of the battle between Ford and Ferrari for Le Mans glory in the 60s. It's a brilliant book and I highly recommend it especially if you're into racing or are at all competitive.

Listening to the audiobook version of Jo Nesbø's Phantom:

This series is just so much better than I expected when coming across it. Even Norway does good "Nordic Noir" these days :-)

The Last Gunfight, Jeff Guinn. The real story of the shoutout at the OK Coral and how it changed the American West. A good read as its not 'Hollywood'. :thumbup:

We'll, I'm co-directing a performance of the stage version with a bunch of 11 year olds in July, so I thought I'd better read the original...The Secret Garden!!

PS...it"s brilliant!
