I'm reading The Last Assin and The Islamist.
ATM The Islamist by Ed Hussain is the better book.

I finished reading 'The Celestine Prophecy' by James Redfield (i think). Really good read, seriously recommended to ANYONE.

Something to do with French peasants and knights during the Hundred Years War.
 
Later I'll be moving on to Stalin's industrialisation 5 Year Plans of the 1930s.

im in the process of reading every single h.p lovecraft short story in print. think im half way through

 
I read some Lovecraft recently.  I thought the academic style of writing was pretty funny, and worked well for horror, but I didn't really get into the stories.  I think I was reading 'The Mountains of Madness' which is one of his longest, and it did drag on a bit.  I probably should have stuck to the shorter bits.
 
ORIGINAL: Statically

Have been really slack of late but I have been reading Simon Sebag Montefiore's Young Stalin,

 

That's been on my shelf for ages.  I really want to know the information that's in there, but never feel in the mood for actually reading it.

Dunwhich Horror
The colour out of space
The Rats in the walls

Just finished reading "ALL CREWS-a journey through jungle/dnb culture" for the 2nd time.It is an interesting read,quite informative but it could of focusing more on dnb globally than just the dnb scene in London.The book would make a good starting guide for newbies who would like to know about the origins and progressions of dnb to how it is today.It isn´t a new book and it finishes around 2004/5 time.

About to start reading Catch 22 by Joseph Heller after numerous recommendations from the forum.

Just finished reading Brent Weeks Night Angel trilogy. Wasn't bad.


Catch 22 is a great book, i ended up reading the part where yossarian goes all paranoid in an aeroplane when i was flying to dam tho, not the greatest idea lol.

Reading Day Of The Jackal by frederick forsyth at the minute. Can see why it's a classic, the man understand pace.

If you like Catch 22 I'd recommend Slaughterhouse 5 and Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut (RIP)

Still reading The Algebraist by Iain M Banks.  Heavy book but hardgoing.

Hunter Thompson - Hell's Angels, not as good as Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas or the Rum Diary IMO as not the same style, more factual, but interesting all the same. Watched the documentary on his life last night Gonzo was really good, includes lots of cool footage and interviews with the people who knew him well.

I'm reading Homicide - David Simon. Awesome book really, cant put it down.


Good to know, have had the new edition pre-ordered for what seems like ages.

Reading 'The Corner' by David Simon at the moment, although i gave in to temptation and watched the series and now i'm less inclined to go back to the book.

Instruments of Night - Thomas H Cook. quite a few of his books now are about solving crimes that happened 30+ years ago, this one's pretty twisted in places, but not in an overly obvious way.


good book.

I bought this, pretty interesting read. Some of the pictures of Djs/Producers/Mc's when they were younger are jokes.
