Been flicking through the Bill Clinton autobiography, it's pretty interesting.
And for fun been reading The Beach by Alex Garland.

Mervyn Peake - Titus Groan. Well written but claustrophobic.

Finished the beach and have moved onto Hell's Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs by Hunter. S. Thompson. Been really interesting so far.

Kate Adie's autobiography - really interesting, and relevant given Tibet's news this week

REading a couple of books; Freakonomics which is quite thought-provoking although a little to American on occasion, plus as light relief I'm reading; "One Hit Wonderland" by Tony Hawkes which I can thoroughly recommend - it's a great fun read with possible lessons for TV!

A history of the Agincourt campaign - very good it is too. I see Bernard (Sharpe) Cornwell has gone straight to number one in the book charts with his new fiction on the same theme - I'll get that next.

Hugh Cornwell's aotobiography. Most amusing and suprisingly revealing.

I must admit I enjoyed his autobiography a lot as well although if I remember right it's more a collection of stories from his life and you need to fill in the blanks!

Yep, ever since I watched that movie "Walk the line" I was interested to find out more about the "man in black" and this book is what I'd looked for, very good.

I had Lemmy's autobiography - White Line Fever - thrust into my hand the other day and I'm half way through that

Not surprisingly an easy read, but an interesting one; I hadn't realised the Adverts had played with Motorhead...

Possibly a bit sexist in parts...

Since my holiday I've started reading non-work related books again. I've just finished 'The Men Who Stare at Goats' (thanks Chris!), and 'The Mafia at War' and I am now into fiction and half way through the Stieg Larsson trilogy featuring the dragon-tattoo girl which I'm enjoying.
