I've been reading the Charley Davidson books by Darynda Jones. First Grave on the Right, Second Grave on the Left, etc. The story mostly seems to be there to showcase the sex scenes, but they're still good stories and very funny, quick reads. A lot like Stephanie Plum books, but supernatural and more sex.

The Long Earth - what an unusual story. By Pratchett and S Baxter (I'll have to have a look at his other books now). A little mindboggling at times. Every character this pair created were believable and likable, even the enemies. Now I'll have to read The Long War.

It is an unusual book, but I have enjoyed them both.

I'm reading, and enjoying, Raising Steam. Didn't think I wanted another Moist von Lipwig book after Making Money, but so far . . . :)

Finished reading Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. Bloody weird book, and a little thin on the ground, but perversely enjoyable all the same.

Reading Karen Maitland , The Company of Liars. Very good so far

A brilliant book. Why thin on the ground? Anyone who enjoyed the film would love the book BTW :)
