    Quantitative Methods for Business and Management by Frank Dewhurst and many other text books.

    Apart from that, I'm reading Prophets of the Hood by Prof. Perry. Great book for the HipHop fanatics. :yy:

    I just finished Vanity Fair, finally, hoorah. Then I watched the 2004 adaptation, to see if they made a hames of it, and they did: a complete hames. Worst adaptation ever. Everything about it was wrong, wrong, wrong.

    Now I'm reading The Europeans by Henry James.

    Tried to get into it a couple of weeks ago and couldnt really. Its clearly quite an accomplished work but i see nothing which makes it deserve its place in Time magazines list of the 100 greatest novels.
    Maybe that it's deeper and more complex in terms of symbolism than most 'literary' novels.

    I'm reading Vanity Fair and a random book for French. After Vanity Fair I'm probably going to start Chekhov's The Story of a Nobody - has anybody read this? I've never read any Russian lit. before, don't know if this is a good one to start with!

    Just finished A Painted House by John Grisham and am starting The King Of Torts by him now. I'm also reading The Naked Jape by Jimmy Carr and Lucy Greeves but its hard to read consistently.

    What do you think of Vanity Fair? I just finished it. If I were starting to delve into Russian literature I'd read Crime and Punishment first, but after Thackery you might want something a bit shorter! Chekov's always a good bet.

    It'll have to wait till the summer, I'm afraid. I have a pesky thesis to write now, and I'm also relapsing into reading Victorian novels, which I haven't done for a good few years. Thanks for the tip though

    After I finished The Pianist last week I've read 'The Innocent' by Harlen Coben (or something similar), 'PS I love you' by Celia Aherne and 'The Boy Next Door' by Emyln Someone and Josie Someone. Now I'm on Pride and Prejudice just cos I'm in need of something to read and haven't been to the library. Perhaps I'll try Vanity Fair next if we've got it.
