Still trawling (painfully) through Ayn Rand then its Dwarves by Markus Heitz.

On my to read / to do list

Booze for Free by Andy Hamilton :wink: :D

Good mix :D

I'll have to reorganise my to read pile. I've lost track a little.
tipping in and out of Peter Whimsy short stories and working my way through the Song of ice and fire series
Also have the fourth part of Gormenghast sitting at home but trying to get the courage to read it ( i'm afraid it will suck severely)
I've one or two recently acquired Philip K Dicks to read and i've just gotten Peter Ackroyds History of England pt 1.

Also have the two Ben Aaronovitch London books to start.
Should get me by til Snuff arrives :D

I'm avoiding Gormenghast 4 for much the same reason. :roll: Just added Crusader Castles by TE Lawrence to the pile... Might get to it in a few weeks :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

By Gormenghast 4 do you mean A Boy in Darkness
Or did some writer write some new one
But if it is a Boy in Darkness you should read it it's pretty good
