So, what book are you currently reading?

This was my most popular thread on the Dark Side.

Thought i would resurrect it here. So, what book are you currently reading?

Im halfway through Filth by Irvine Welsh....... very gritty and is written in a scottish twang, which makes it a difficult read.

Anybody ever read this?? Can you tell me what the tapeworm bit is on certain pages??

Just finished Donnie brascoe. Awesome book.

Biographies aside I'm really selective to what I read it's mcnab, Ryan or Clancy. So I read 3 books a year on average.

I'm gonna buy pollack's series though.

Inferno - Dan Brown.

Interesting book, I've just been too busy to spend extended time on it.

It does make me think about population growth, and it's ability to link many symbolic historical events into a compelling story, it's really enjoyable.

I always picture Nic Cage (from the National Treasure films) as Rob langdon though.

The scopes monkey trial in the battle of fundamentalism v evolution. The 3rd is a black Detroit doctor accused of murder after fighting of a lynch mob.

It's up to you Jay, I guess reviewing the book is for when you've finished it whereas this is while you're reading it, but maybe that's just nit picking. I don't mind mate :good

leave it then - just didn't want to see one thread get left by the wayside if merging benefits both.

Last book I read was a Concise History Of France which is part of a series of books Cambridge Uni publish. It's just a general overview of their history from Charlemagne's era to when Chirac was president although they may have updated it since to include Sarkozy's presidency.
