"Book of Lost Things" maybe. Great book.
I'm just finished the third part of the Samuel Johnson series a week or two ago and its a nice series. :D :D
Managed to get John to sign the whole set (plus all my Charlie Parker Books) . Such a nice guy :D

Very cool Pip! :D Book of Lost Things sounds familiar, so maybe you're right. I'll definitely be reading more!

Reading Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield. It's really good! I have The Infernals by John Connolly next in my pile.

On the civilised part of the world The Infernals is actually called Hells Bells. One of those odd occasions were I preffered the US cover to the UK one. A good book none the less.
And for jealousy inducing purposes I'm going to a table quiz with John Connolly on Tuesday next :D

Love that book - the ending is so sad.

Just finished reading a history of Dungeons & Dragons, called Of Dice and Men.

Just finished The Infernals, it was great! He has absolutely fabulous footnotes. :lol:

I've started Dangerous Women, a collection of short stories edited by George R. R. Martin. It's really thick! :shock:
