    Currently reading The Socialite Who Killed a Nazi with her Bare Hands. (How could you not pick up a book with a title like that?!) It's certainly interesting. I am also reading Dhalgren for my fiction fix.

    I'm currently almost through "Wuthering Heights."  Next book up is "Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain to see if it is better than "Huckleberry Finn" which I have recently read.

    Interesting that this thread popped back up. I was just thinking about going to the library next week and checking out a half-dozen books. Haven't done that in awhile.

    1. Genesis Secret by Tom Knox. It's proving a surprisingly good read of the lost secrets/mystery thriller variety and has also drawn my attention to the existence of the Gobekli Teppe site in Kurdish Turkey, where the oldest temple in the world (c. 10,000 years old)  was discovered in the 1990s.

    2. Y Llyfr Ryseitiau: Gwaed Y Tylwyth  by Nicholas Daniels. A children's fantasy, which I am using to push myself further in reading and understanding Welsh.

    3. The 13 Curses by Michelle Harrison. A teen fantasy of a girl trying to get back her brother, who was stolen by the fairy folk. I ended up having to wait to see someone in the bank, so popped out to the nearest charity shop to find something to read while I waited. Not bad so far.

    I've just the finished The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists (Tressell) read it years and years ago, but gained even more insights this time. Also become a beta reader for a friend- read first chapter, excellent. Even though the genre is not really my thing, I knew it would *get me* in that first chapter, she's an excellent writer.

      I'm finally reading A Lesson Before Dying.....good stuff. 

      Before that I read John Grisham's "literary" novel A Painted House and was surprised by how much I didn't hate it.

      I'm going to go through this thread and put together a reading list!
