Re: What book are you reading now?

I'm just about to finish Elly Griffith's "Smoke And Mirrors" the 2nd in her Stephens and Mephisto Mystery series. I've already finished the 1st "The Zig-zag Girl" and about to start the 3rd "The Blood Card" which V is finishing off. Then we have "The Vanishing Box" which is the 4th and latest in the series on the book shelf ready and waiting.

Re: What book are you reading now?

I'm three quarters through Word Perfect - a book by Suzy Dent (she of Dictionary Corner fame in C4's Countdown). She gives a word for every single day of the year, and it's origins. I've always been fascinated by etymology and this book (Kindle version) gives some excellent examples.

Halfway through Ravenspur which is the fourth and last part of Conn Iggulden's Wars of the Roses historical novels. As history is one of my interests I enjoy reading how different authors weave their own stories round historical events.

Thought it about time to plough my way through some Edgar Allen Poe.

Re: What book are you reading now?

I am reading "Hidden in Plain Sight" by Jeffrey Archer. It is the second in the series based on a character from the Clifton Chronicles.

Once upon a time I quite liked his books but I have to say their attraction has faded somewhat, he was never a great writer but a good story teller however I think he might have lost that touch (or perhaps he needs a better editor).

I also have the third book in the series so I have to plough on but I think they were remaindered for a reason.

Re: What book are you reading now?

Am now reading in German "Als ich ein kleiner Junge war" - When I was a little boy by German author Erich Kästner who wrote among other novels the Emil and the Detectives series of books.

It's an autobiography of his childhood years in the German city of Dresden up to the breakout of World War One.

Kästner was an opponent of the Nazis and his works were banned in Germany under Nazi rule and burned during the infamous book burning.
