I've just finished The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde: seriously weird and a bit uneven, but quite fun in places.

Yesterday I just finished "Shades of Grey" by Jasper Fforde - another seriously weird but absolutely wonderful book. I can't wait for the sequel!

I've been reading too much heavy stuff lately. So as a "pallete cleanse" I read Sarah Silverman's autobiography The Bedwetter, Stories of Courage, Redemption and Pee. As you might imagine, it's quite naughty. But it was hysterical and just what I needed!

Milan Kundera: Testaments Betrayed

Upamanyu Chatterjee: English August

Richard Dawkins: The God Delusion

I'm feeling really stupid for not having read English August before... also kinda crushing on the protagonist! :)

"This is your Brain on Music" by Daniel Levitin.

This book has a lot to say about music and intelligence--referencing a current thread.

I've just finished Drood following your recommendation and loved it. Thanks’

I'm reading A S Byatt's The Children's Book now but I've already been leant Dan Simmons Hyperion as my next read.
