The Black Guard by A J Smith & Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. And I'm loving both of them.

Ramblings of a madman, saying that I've been reading 'Stupid White Men' by Michael Moore which is more or less 250 pages of bashing 'Dubya' Bush and corporate America.

It's a good read actually.

Read the first 40 pages of a book called Three Seconds today.

Seems alright so far.

Currently reading The Silmarillion, it's quite heavy going really and I'm not sure I'm really taking in everything. Sort of feel like I've read it but even a second later I wouldn't be able to tell you what's going on. I suppose I've got the general gist so far but not the details. It's the type of thing that's going to require quite a lot of reads really.

Finished Doctor Sleep - fantastic sequel to The Shining.

Up next is Michael Schumacher: The Whole Story. A bit out of date since it only goes up to his original 2006 retirement but for £3.99 new I won't complain.

I read it as a kid and my memory of it was it slightly disturbed me - but in a good way. Must re-read it soon.

Currently reading 'The Long Earth' by Pratchett and Baxter. It's fun and inventive as you'd expect, but has bolted together feel about it

Seven Forges by James A Moore. Picked this one up a week or two ago, but only just started reading it. Very good indeed.

just started the Jonathon Nathan Turner biog by Richard Marston. Not an era of Dr Who I watched, but sounds interesting and controversial

Bit of a catch up here:

Doctor Sleep-I thought this was an excellent read, with some nice nods back to The Shining and a believable character arc.

Wizard And Glass-Second time through this and I loved it just as much.

IT- This was one of my favourite teenage books. I last read it in 1987, and kept putting off re-reading it but I'm currently balls deep in it again and thoroughly enjoying this.

After this I might read something that King didn't write.....
