What book are you reading at the moment?

#1
I'm reading Dr Mukti And Other Tales Of Woe by Will Self which has some pretty interesting short stories in it all of which are bleak and isolationist. Good stuff.

It's wicked isn't it? I love the bizarre twists and turns the story takes, it just begs you to keep on reading! Love it to bits!

It's also refreshing to read a Rankin book that isn't set in Brentford!

I'm not reading anything at the moment, I've got my eye on a few of my girlfriend's books at the mo, so I might have to covert one of them, 'The Quantity Theory of Insanity' (or something like that) by Will Self looks like an attractive proposition. Or I might read Ham on Rye. Again.

i just finished reading when you ride alone, you ride with bin laden, which is essentially a picture book for adults. it's a good quick read-i like some of the points about saving, american gluttony and drug policies even though bill maher is a bit of a chauvenist prick.
