I'm loving this series - I discovered 'Shadow of the Wind' on a shelf, unread, a couple of weeks ago - I can't believe I didn't read it as soon as I bought it a few years ago, because it's fabulous.

'Angels Game' carries on the theme, and there's another one either just published or about to be.

Dark, beautifully written (all the more credible as they're translated from Spanish with nothing lost) Gothic,just wonderful.

I've always liked ragtime, but the only composer I really knew something about was Scott Joplin. So this has been a great book to learn about them.

Have just finished reading Chavs by Owen Jones.

Such a good book, detailing how the working class have gone from being "the salt of the earth to the scum of the earth." Such a good, is depressing, look at what Thatcherism did to society and what it's left us with now. And all this from an author who was only born in 1984.

Great read although probably a good idea to read some old shite at the same time, to take your mind off the sorry truth of it. x

Sorry about the gigantic picture!! Not too hot on the technology bit on the forum. Although generally, anyone who says size isn't important just isn't telling the truth. x

I saw this on a colleague's bookshelf at work and asked to borrow it. I haven't taken it yet but I will do now.

I've recently pre-ordered a large scale road map - due to be delivered this week. And, yes, I do realise I am sad. :P

A nice bit of gratuitous killin' too :*: I think it's the best of the two but Ablutions is funny (and desperate)
