    Read any good books lately?

    Finished reading Alex Zinardi's book the other night. Excellent read it was too... highly recommend it!

    Anyway, I'm on the look out for something else now. I've taken a look on Amazon and nothing is really grabbing me. I quite like the look of this, but it hasn't been published yet.

    My Dad's just finished the Da Vinci Code so I might give that a go if nobody can come up with anything.

    Yeah, reading 2 books at the moment. Bill Bryson - A short history of nearly everything, Douglas Adams - The Restaurant at the end of the Universe. Both good and amusing.

    Good to see him win a World Touring Car race at the weekend. It's an insperational read.

    Clackson's is OK
    Pop by and see www.sporthatchowners.co.uk

    Take care of your car and the folks in it. Without either live would be a lot worse

    tess gerritsen novels are very good, gravity and bloodstream are 2 that i've read recently. I also read the surgeon, and the apprentice a while back aswell which kinda follow on from each other, and i'm pretty sure theres a third which follows on from that. Also read wilbur smith wild justice, finished that yesterday, really good and very moving in parts. Wasn't a good choice for me as i have to be really enthuthiastic in my job, and when i walked into a customers house halfway thru a moving part of the book, i found it hard to motivate myself.

    I'm also looking for something new, i only have nick faldo's autobiography to go till i need something new, so i willw atcht hsi thread with interest.
