    I'm actually reading about four. The pressures of work mean that I actually haven't finished any of them.

    Plato- The Republic
    Robin Cook- The Point of Departure (something for a long train ride)
    Hunter S Thompson- Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas
    Douglas Adams- Hitch-hiker's Guide (again)

    Yet I can't seem to make it half way through. I'll have a long summer ahead.

    Is that the one where he goes round the world on his motorbike?
    If it is that one, it's very cool. I remember watching the television series and listening to the radio one too.
