        "The Power of Now" Eckhart Tolle

        Very calming.

          I've just read The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.

          It was pretty good.

          Currently re-reading Freakonomics

            How high-brow you all are. I'm reading (again) Insomnia by Stephen King.

                  How to lose friends and alienate people by that Toby Young chap is actually hilarious.

                    I've got a copy of "The Pub Landlord's Book of British Common Sense" by Al Murray. That's very amusing in places!

                      on the bedside table are:

                      earthly powers by anthony burgess

                      millennium: the end of the world and the forging of christendom by tom holland

                      i'm on the penultimate chapter of earthly powers. it is the kind of book i should love but tbh i have struggled at times with the the main characters problems reconciling his homosexuality with the doctines of the roman catholic church. far too many cases of me rolling my eyes with total indifference to the moral maze he finds himself in.

                      i saw the holland book in waterstone's at the weekend and grabbed it straight away - i loved his previous two books on the roman and persian empires and am hoping that this one will be equally good.

                      actually, i also have the long way down on the bedside table but it has been there since last christmas. i've got no further than end of the rain in italy and that was months and months ago.
