I've just finished reading Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay, it is absolutely one of the best fantasy novels I have ever read.

So what gems are you lot reading?

I don't seem to have any time for reading at the moment - in fact I've hardly read anything for the past 6 months, coincidentally that's the same length of time that the wee'n has been in my life....!

I gave up on The Big Over Easy (Fforde) coz after not picking it up for 3 months I'd forgotten what was going on.

Technically I'm now reading The Brightonomicon, but I've actually only read the first 2 chapters in 2 months.

Really must make an effort to make more time to read..... Sad

The last couple of books I've been reading are "The Bumper Book of Government Waste" and "Wicked" (took me a while to get around to reading it)

I'm currently reading

Practical Demonkeeping - Chrisopher Moore
The Voyage of the Sable Keech - Neil Asher
Harrington on Hold 'em: Expert Strategy for No Limit Tournaments: Strategic Play - Dan Harrington
One of those interminable Robert Jordan wheel of time thingys (seriously on back-burner)

But I'm not reading anything very fast, and I've got a huge queue of things I want to read building up Sad

Oh and I just finished reading "Is it just me, or is everything shit?" I forget the author; which in between a few dull bit s and a few bits I disagreed with, has provided me with more genuine laughing-out-loud-like-a-loony moments than any book I've read in the last 10 years.
I can also thoroughly recommend "Conned Again Watson: Cautionary Tales of Logic, Math and Probability" by Colin Bruce

> Oh and I just finished reading "Is it just me, or is everything shit?" I forget the author;

Alan Mcarthur and Steve Lowe.
I was looking at that when I had to do some shopping for gifts at the end of last year.

I am reading 6 months worth of university lecture notes I didn't make because I was still too drunk to make morning lectures.

Where has all the time gone? Wierd how drinking for a whole year makes everything seem more vague.
