Bought the paperback in a charity shop today as the hardback is too nice to risk in the bath :-)

The Chessmen by Peter May. The third in the "Lewis" (as in Isle of Lewis) trilogy. I've enjoyed all three - pretty well written, evocative of the place and a nice interweaving of several stories. On top of that, they're a couple of quid each on the Kindle. :thumbup:

Finished my re-reading of the works of Iain Banks last night, by way of a homage to a great writer and a sad loss for British literature.

As of tonight, I shall start on Frederick Pohl, to pay him the same respect.

Am I the only one who adjusts his reading list according to who has just died?

Great book! Gave me a deeper appreciation for Apocalypse Now.

As for me, I'm reading The Third Option by Vince Flynn.

Double Cross by Ben Macintyre: The true account of how Double and Triple Agents kept the real location of the D-day landings secret from the Germans. Fascinating book filled with the activities of truly eccentric and courageous men and women.
