I'm now reading The Asti Spumante Code by Toby Clements, it's hilarious.

I've changed my mind so instead of reading The Set Up I plan to fully focus on Mort :D

Reading The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, Vol. 5. Grabbed it from the library because it has a Neil Gaiman story in it. I was disappointed to discover it was one I already read in another short story collection. Hopefully the rest of the stories are good.

Reading The English Ghost by Peter Ackroyd and Perdition - The Crusaders Last Stand by James Jackson.
Didn't sleep well the last two nights after the ghost stuff (good training for whats to come ) :D

Great book, especially if you read it immediately after The Da Vinci Code.

lol...I quite enjoyed DVC actually, as long as you don't take it too literally it's not a bad read. Angels & Demons was my favourite one of his though, I couldn't put that one down. The Lost Symbol was pretty pants though, with about 150 pages of waffle tacked on the end for no apparent reason.

There is a great spoof of The Lost Symbol here if anyone's interested:
