What book are you reading now?

I love reading and I plough through books at quite a speed. So I enjoyed a post on the Howies blog about books recently.
I am going to steal their idea and ask you 3 questions:

– What book did you last read?
– What are you currently reading?
– What’s next on your pile of books to read?

My answers:

– Junior Officers’ Reading Club
– Penguin History of the 20th Century (may take a while!)
– The Well-Loved Stranger

What are you reading now? Please share with us in the comments…

  16. Some suggestions from my friend Clare:

    “I totally devour books, and no charity shop is safe from me, no matter how full my brompton pannier!

    I have recently finished “The Broken Window” by Jeffry Deaver (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Broken-Window-Jeffery-Deaver/dp/0340993707/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255004675&sr=1-1). I like a bit of Deaver- I think his crime fiction is very clever… maybe too clever for me sometimes!

    I am currently reading “The Little things” by Erica James (£3 in Sainsburies (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Its-Little-Things-Erica-James/dp/0752884336/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255004571&sr=8-1) which Is beautifully written, essentially chick-lit, relatively predictable (so far!)…. Read more

    Next on my pile of books is “Iceland Inside Guide” (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Iceland-Insight-Guide-Apa/dp/9812587578/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255004747&sr=1-2) as we’re off on our exciting Iceland Honeymoon next friday and I haven’t had a chance to really look through it all!

    Just finished reading The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Moshin Hamid. Enjoyed it because (a) i normally read a lot of non fiction and (b) its an revealing and scary introduction into how much of the Islamic world views the West…..

    1: moods of future joys.
    2: thunder and sunshine
    3: a bit Scott-ish.

    Can you spot a thread here…
    I don’t only ear cycling books, but bought a new bike after christmas with the intention of riding lots again and losing weight – I sit firmly in your list of the percentage who are overweight!
    I have been riding most days; doing my shopping by bike rather than car now, and have lost a stone in six weeks. Crashed hard a few days ago – was surprised by a rogue manhole cover on a wet corner and in trying to avoid it hit the kerb and landed on my shoulder. Got a week away now, so time to recover and get back on asap.
    Also planning a trip around the outer Hebrides this June.

    Thanks for the books, they are great, and inspire my forthcoming trip – however short it may be in comparison!

        Funny to re read this a year later!

        Lost another stone, riding the woods on my mountain bike most days now.

        Book I’m reading now – and well worth a read – three cups of tea; factual about a climber who devotes his life to building schools in Baltistan; Pakistan, in the Himalayan foothills after a failed attempt on K2. Check it out Al.

    I’m currently reading The Way of Zen written by Alan Watts.
    The last book which had an impact on me was Mating in Captivity by Esther Perel and the one that I plan to purchase next is The Element by Sir Kenneth Robinson.

    Thanks for sharing your stories with us,

    last book read was The World of Cycling According to G by Geraint Thomas, an interesting insight into life in the peleton.
    Current book I am reading is Walking Home by Poet Simon Armitage about walking the Pennine Way ‘the wrong way round from Kirk Yetholm to Edale. I am enjoying the book. Simon writes in an engaging way, and is quite amusing and poignant at the same time.
    The next book that I would like to read is Mood of Future Joys because I read mistakenly read Thunder and Sunshine first. This would give me an excuse to read the second book again.
