I'm reading An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon - it's the latest in the series of books in the Outlander series of 7 books so far that starts with Cross stitch - love them :-)

Also read To Kill a Mocking Bird - so lovely and more but can't think will get back to you

I really fancy the Snowman, Sue.

I've just finished The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, which I loved (even though it's really a teens book).

I also read The Fry Chronicles by Stephen Fry (my fave person)

Just started The Chosen One by Sam Bourne

phew thought it was me as I didn't like the one I read either!

I will have to note these books down and work through them, so much choice.

Never read a Katie Fforde although often picked them up in the library.

Someone at work has started a swap next to her desk - so everyone is starting to get talking about books there too.

I've never read a Jodie Picoult - just sort of know it won't be my cup of tea.

We swap books at work too, Carolyn. My office seems to be where they all end up - currently have 37 sitting on top of a cupboard.

Might not all be totally bad!!!!

I am .reading 'The darkest hour' by Katherine Howell. It tells a story of paramedics and police in Australia. I am enjoying it. Katherine Howell was an ambulance officer herself.

I'm halfway through Neverwhere by Niel Gaiman....i'm reading it with the kids, it must be about the tenth time i've read it.

I'm tempted to go back through my collection of Paulo Coelho books, i wanted to read The Alchemist anyway but most of his are good.
