Just finished the novel Nobble Hospital of the Aegean by Paul Judges. If you haven't been to Greece, this story will take you there, and make you want to visit the Greek islands immediately. The book made me laugh, and think.

I recommend it. :)

I hope she then gave you a burger and a large helping of French fries as a further act of glasnost.

Oh, and I'm still on "Persuasion" which is a discussion group book, but have started "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe" by Agatha Christie because it's on the Palm and it's always in my purse.

A fantasy novel titled Ghost Walker, by Eric Scott DeBie.
It's a fast moving, fun read.

I read a book by Stephen Fry called Moab is my Washpot

Now, upon extreme persuasion by some of my close friends, I'm on to Lord of the Rings

I'm also reading PGW's Leave it to Psmith

I plan to read Whole Lotta Led which is about the birth, life and death of 'Led Zeppelin' the band.

Also, I will read Umberto Eco's Foucalt's Pendulum, and The Trial by Kafka.
Good fun. :)
