At this very moment and strictly for reference purposes "Environmental Law Handbook". You wouldn't want to read this unless someone was holding a gun to your temple. Christ, it's tedious!

I haven't read a book for eons but am currently about halfway through KP; which is nothing to do with nuts.

Hardly a literary masterpiece but it rather blows the lid off any idea that professional cricket is a genteel sport. It appears to be highly charged, emotional and political.

Its giving me a valuable insight into KP and, even allowing for a rather large pinch of salt for what he has written, he seems to be widely misunderstood.

After just watching Lone Survivor on Sky, I'm about to read the book upon which the film is based.

Day of the Triffids - been a long time and had forgotten how much I liked Wyndham's writing style.

Campion! I liked them... there was a TV series also, but I don't recall that I ever watched it.

I didn't watch the Peter Davison TV programmes either but I am thoroughly enjoying the Campion books.

I've also got them all on audio books and they are a great 'listen to' in the car.

Along with the comparison of the Owen biographies, I have put Augustine aside for a bit to plough through "Blue Like Jazz" by Donald MILLER for the clergy book club.
Just as my Merc SL was great fun for a country road burn but not a serious form of transport, this book is fun, but....

Faith and Treason by Antonia Fraser. Her account of the Gunpowder Plot. Well written and researched, Fraser writes in a non polemic fashion that gives the reader their own opportunity to assess the events and characters.
