Not reading just now... But I'm waiting for Thursday when the new Reacher book comes out.

That is a problem once a character has made it to the big screen.
Upon reading Hannibal I had a combination of Brian Cox and Anthony Hopkins in my head, not pretty!

Just finished Stoner by John Williams. 48 years after it was published and was largely ignored, it's now being increasingly recognised as one of the great American novels of the 20th century. Rightly so.

The main character in these books has a life that is just about the polar opposite of my own, in a part of the USA I've never visited. It is total escapism and really allows me to block out the rest of the rabble on LH123 from Dusseldorf. :)
Good to hear C J Box being enjoyed!
I've read "Back of Beyond" and enjoyed it immensely, may have to start the Joe Pickett series.
Good recommendation boys. Have just finished the first Joe Pickett book, Open Season, and moving onto the 2nd. Only a couple of quid a piece if you pick them up for the Kindle. Easy reading, but a writing style I like, so I can see myself running through the series. :thumbup: .

Also going through the Jack Reacher novels as they are easily digested and entertaining

A History of Wales. Trying to take a break from re-reading the entire Iain Banks catalogue.

Some surprising stuff in here! No sheep molesting so far though.

The Lost Mona Lisa by R. A. Scotti. A fascinating true life story of the modern world's greatest painter accused of stealing the world's most famous painting. In the late afternoon on Sunday, 20th August 1911, three men strolled into the Louvre, hid and 16 hours later the Mona Lisa had vanished. Published by Bantam Books, ISBN 978-0-55381-830-7, priced £8.99. It's a good read with historical intrigue fuelled by the realisation that all is not what it seems.

Was it good? I read another of his (The Crime Trade) a couple of years ago which was excellent.
So I wish I was James Bond, just for the day.
