[quote="rtrgrl78"]I'm reading 'The Sky is Falling' - Sidney Sheldon, a surprisin book about a a popular family all killed one by one. kind of look of your shoulder book. Not bad for £0.99 from Asda :lol:

Is it really that good?

I have the Hardback edition and although I started reading it a year or so ago, I became pre-occupied with something else.

Off the top of my head I recall something about a lady that works as a journalist for a news program, has an adopted kid thats always in trouble at school - is that right? I only read like the first 20 pages if that.

May have to get back into it if it's that good.

I was down at the car boot sale this morning and I also bought a "new" book.

Had seen it in Waterstones a couple of years back, but passed it up as I don't really buy books as new unless it is specifically something that really interests me (American cars, Video-gaming, a biography of somebody important that has actually lived a good 55+ plus years - unlike all these 18yo footballers and Z list celebrities that think everyone gives a toss about what they have done for the last 3!)

Yes, as well as soon cool PS2 game bargains, I also purchased a book entitled :

Why Do People Hate America?

I wonder if Bill Gates will get a Chapter of his own :lol:

I have just finished reading the Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson, made up of 3 books (Quicksilver, The Confusion and The System Of The World), They're a fascinating mixture of History, Science, Politics, Economics, adventure... mixing real historical characters with fictional ones.
They weigh in at about 1000 pages each, it took the best part of 3 months for me to finish them but kept me interested all the way through.
I bought "Quicksilver" at last on the strength of this post mate...started it last night, only about 35 pages in but I'm hooked!

The Eagle has Landed - Jack Higgins. Watched the film the other day and enjoyed it, so thought I owed it to myself to read the book.

Last book I've read was Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis. Also I'm currently reading The Faber Book of Science.
