    Dean, have you ever read anything by Caitlin Moran? She's very funny, I'm just reading through her second book Moranthology. :D

    Actually, never heard of Her Ron! Don't think anything She's done has made it to Australia yet.

    I've just finished the 2nd book in the Divergent series, not too bad but a fair bit of a Hunger Games rip off. They've just made the movie of book 1 so will be interesting to see what its like.

    I have an e-reader on my new mobile phone, which means my reading has increased exponentially. I read on the bus, time in between classes etc. Really great! Some books I've recently finished:

    Kelly Oxford - Everything's perfect when you're a liar
    Harry Mulisch - Twee Vrouwen
    Ray Bradbury - Fahrenheit 451
    Jen Kirkman - I can barely take care of myself
    Mark Twain - Tom Sawyer

    Currently reading Brain Droppings by George Carlin.

    I'm really hooked on my e-reader, I love it! :)

    Just finished Brain Droppings by George Carlin. It also seemed like a really long notebook, but it was interesting to see his thought process. Carlin has really been an influence on some of my world views.

    Now I'll start The Dinner by Herman Koch, which Cate Blanchett is going to adapt into a movie.

    Jeffrey Deaver - The Kill Room
    After You'd Gone - Maggie O'Farrell (Not my normal type of book but a 'friend' was reading for her book club and asked if I'd read it too so she could discuss it!
