Read the latest Stuart MacBride book.
Can't really say that I overly enjoyed it.
Think there is getting too much of a sameness about them now.
The one liners from DCI Steele etc are just getting repetitive.
 
Maybe just me, maybe others think differently, but I won't be rushing to read the next one.
 
Now moved on to J K Rowling " The Casual Vacancy". Never read any the Harry Potter books, but knowing what I know about them, there is something weird about reading some of the language she uses in this.

Not read it yet but DCI Steele was beginning to grate about 3 books ago (at least).

Currently reading David Mitchell's autobiography.  It's nothing startling!

Talking about books. Does anyone use a Kindle? I've had one for a few months now and I'm pleasantly surprised how good it is. I used to be one of the old" only real books for me!! " School.

I love digital reading, I even hear that you can download them for free without paying for them like you can do with music and film etc

Obviously I would NEVER do that

That's brilliant. Soon there will be no tv, books, films or games if things carry on but you saved a tenner or something. Just spend money on buying things legally FFS.

Gies a shout Hebrew, my missus must have at least two dozen that you could pick from to borrow that would be more than large enough to carry a copy of any book  ;)
