    I've just finished One Hundred Years of Solitude and The Princess Bride (again)

    About to re-read the Eyre Affair (again).

    What about you?

    Hi Welshstew

    The only books I read are shop manuals, I have no imagination so always wait for the film ;)

    Regards

    Not read a good book for ages, I used to be a book reader many years ago. James Herbert and Steven King where my favourites.

    Hi Welshstew

    Workshop repair manuals like Haynes manuals but all the ones I have are from the vehicle manufacturers

    Trying to get through Discworld series again, still on first book, must have read the first half about 10 times in the last month... not doing a very good job at actually reading it

    So you haven't found all the hidden cameras and mikes yet ....

    Just on "Under Stones" by Bob Franklin, it's a collection of Bob's short stories. Guy reminds me of Ramsay Campbell. I'm on the judging panel for Shadows this year so am pretty much just keeping up with the prescribe reading list.

    Pratchett ROCKS! If you have kids, "Wee Free Men" is one of the best children's books written in the last decade or two :).

    Based on Floris' last post (#16) I'd assume it's about him... ?
