    Default What are you Reading today!

    Thought it was time we had a book thread sure there are plenty readers here so let us hear about it a!d if its any good.. Paper digital or audio, all will be great.


    I am currently reading/listening to Flashman and the Redskins which I think is the 6th book chronologically in the series.

    Being a Flashy fan i have them all and listen when i cant read...Harry Flashman ex bully of Rugby college and his life story.

    There are times when you canít do the sensible thing, when you canít act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But whenís that ever stopped us?

    Yes it is, rather good actually, much like the film, which follows the book pretty closely.

    Vinyl Ė The Art of Making Records by Mike Evans



    A rather fine illustrated Ďcoffee tableí book on the history of music recording.
    Stirling 2015 ISBN 978-1-4549-1781-6



    Before that it was:

    End of Empires by Toby Frost



    The fifth part of the Space Captain Smith series of humorous space-fantasy novels.
    Myrmidon 2014 ISBN 978-1-905802-88-3



    And before that it was:

    Lore & Legends of Kerela. Selections from Kottarathil Sankunniís Aithihyamala

    Translated from Malayalam by T.C. Narayan



    Kerala, on the south-western coast of India, was described as late as 1838, as 'God's Garden' by German missionary and scholar, Hermann Gundert. Even as this land continues to sustain its reputation, little is known about its social and cultural ethos. Lore and Legends of Kerala is a distillation of 48 of the most sparkling of the 800 or so stories that form Aithihyamala, the definitive collection of the myths and social history of Kerala.

    Oxford University Press 2010 ISBN 13:978-0-19-569889-3
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
