Read Anything Good Lately?


“Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists, to make his life full, significant and interesting." -- Aldous Huxley

Summertime means summer reading. What's on your reading list?

As you know, when it comes to fiction, I'm a big fan of sci-fi and fantasy. I also enjoy a broad range of non-fiction, topics from politics, to religion, to sports, to art, to film and television history, to media theory.

One great social networking site with a focus on books is GoodReads. Check it out and let us know which books you recommend.

Alistair Cooke's America; Patrick O'Brian's "The Letter of Marque" and "The Thirteen-Gun Salute"; Barry Strauss's "The Trojan War"; JD Salinger's "The Catcher in the Rye" and F Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby" are in the pile at the moment.

But I've got to head off to a book store before we go on holiday, because they won't last a fortnight
