I've just finished reading Doctor Who: Human Nature by Paul Cornell, the novel that the recent TV story Human Nature/The Family of Blood was based on. Interesting, and in many ways better than the TV episodes, especially the aliens. :)

Just finished a couple by Cecelia Ahern - love her books! And I've just started Numbers Don't Lie by Terry Bisson - great so far!

I am reading.. The Hearts of Horses by Molly Gloss. I think it's her first novel & it's about a lady horse whisperer, ( though they weren't called that then, set in 1917 in the American West during the time of the first WW.
If you love horses & the Wildwest I recommend it.
Best wishes,
Tiff

Before the former I read Jurassic Park by Michael Chrichton, the book before the film, not after & it is far more gruesome & gorey than the film.
Best wishes,

The Jurassic Park books are great! The second one (The Lost World) is completely different from the movie and much more interesting.

I'm reading "The Perfect King" by Ian Mortimer at the moment, it's a biography of Edward III, this is the 3rd history book by Mortimer I've read and his style of writing makes them difficult to put down :)

What reading? See "hello I'm new here" thread :evil:

Also reading The Zombie Wars as I can put it down and pick it up when I want. Love it. Think I have read or started reading it before. When my daughter was settled and had her books out (she has them out again) we tend to visit each other and graze each others books when we do. (Snack on them so to speak.... steal them if we are still reading them as we get into our cars)
