Quite recently finished the autobiography written by George Orwell 'Down and Out in Paris and London' which was an amazing read and puts a 'human face on the statistics of poverty'. Now purchased the world renown novel 'To Kill a Mocking-Bird' written by Harper Lee.

Ooh fab, I've read quite a few of Orwell's books (Animal Farm, A Clergyman's Daughter, Burmese Days, Coming Up For Air) and I'm just over half-way through Nineteen Eighty-Four. I really want to read 'Down and Out in Paris and London', I'm glad it's an amazing read!

Other than 1984 at the moment I'm about to start the 1818 version of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and I've read quite a bit of Steven Pinker's 'The Blank Slate'. At one point I couldn't put it down but then I went away for the weekend leaving it at home and I'm finding it hard to get back into

Just finished reading The art of the Infinite - Robert Kaplan and Ellen Kaplan

I've got a few books I've read bits of too, although one of them is more a collection of short articles.

Just finished "The Stars My Destination" by Alfred Bester (more popularly known as "Tiger! Tiger!")

Ottakers have a pretty good 3 for two on old SF classics.

I just accidentally re-read Twelve by Nick McDonell instead of hard philosophy stuff. It's easy to read and funny and engaging, but much like Catcher in the Rye (which it seems to so often be compared to) it leaves me wondering if I've missed the grand stroke of genius that everyone else raves about.

Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway, as part of my English reading list. Having quite a hard time getting into it to be honest.
