I got most of Waterstones for Chrsitmas so I am working my way though that pile!! I've been reading the Shardlake series by C.J.Sansom and really enjoyed those - they are set in the court of Henry 8th, but they are based around a lawyer and the murderous scrapes he gets into by being involved in the Royal Court.

Then I went onto read 'No and Me' about a homeless girl in France and the impact she makes on different people's lives.
Now I am reading 'The Crying Tree' which is a story about a boy's murder and the impact on his family over the follwoing years.

I would recommend all of them!!

Also the Time traveller's wife was a book I thoroughly enjoyed - definitely worth the effort.

How are you enjoying your Kindle, Carolyn? I've had a Sony reader for about 18 months and absolute love it.

I'm currently reading The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.

Next up I have the following loaded into my reader:

- The Pillars of the Earth - Ken Follett
- World Without End - Ken Follett
- The House at Riverton - Kate Morton
- Let the Great Word Spin - Colum McCann
- The Redeemer - Jo Nesbo
- The Snowman - Jo Nesbo

I was also given a hardback copy of A Tiny Bit Marvellous by Dawn French at Christmas, so should be sorted for the next few months.

liking the Kindle - which is why the book club book is just sitting on the side!

I like the fact that it doesn't keep closing up like a book. :)

It's been in my pile for ages, Clare - I kept not wanting to rush into it because I was looking forward to it so much - I am loving it. I love The Shadow of the Wind too through, one of my favourite books ever.

The Snowman is on my to read list.

I picked up a copy of The Black Tower by PD James which I am trying to get into.

Just finished Canals are my home by Iris Bryce.

Melis

P.S. Couldn't get into the Time travellers Wife.

I've not got to The Snowman yet, as I'm reading the whole series (well actually I believe the first 2 of 7 haven't been translated, or if they have they don't seem to be available here) in order. I've finished The Redbreast, Nemesis and The Devil's Star and just started on The Redeemer,
