    After months of 'getting round to it', I've started on 'The Magus', modern classic by John Fowles that loads of people have raved to me about.

    It's extremely wierd but I'm gripped so far. Anyone else read it?

    What're you reading?

    Im still reading the Dave Peltzer books (A child called IT etc..) but I have nearly finished.

    I have bought one called Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris about a people who spend most of their waking lives sitting next to a bunch of strangers in the office and they kow nothing about each other. It is a funny one and Im looking forward to starting it :)

    Just reading James Patterson's Honeymoon, and today hubby bought me the new Dean Koontz, The Darkest Evening of the Year. DK is my fave author, I know I am going to read the book in one sitting then I will regret it right up until his next book comes out. :?

    The secret diary of a demented housewife! Its really funny, hubby bought it for me!! :rotfl:

    He also bought me 101 ways to kill your husband...now that was a really funny one, the type where you burst out laughing without noticing then realise everyone is staring at you!

    Is my lovely hubby trying to tell me something????

    I've just finished 'death message' by Mark Billingham, now I'm starting on ' the murder ballard' by Jane Hill.

    I've not read any of Jane Hill before so I hope it's gonna be ok.

    I have just finished ''The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night time'' can't remember the authors name.

    It is about a boy with Autism and how he perceives the world - it was fantastic.

    I might start on a Stephen King next though.
