All these books you've mentioned are fantastic, alot of them are my favourites.

I'm really into biography/autobiographys at the moment, just finishing the second Johnny Cash one then going to read June Carters, and I have loads on the Beatles I want to read this summer too.

I always seem to have about three books on the go. At the moment I'm reading:
Catch-22 (For the third time - my favourite book EVER)
Alexander the Great by Robin Lane Fox
Caesar by Adrian Goldsworthy (Classics nerd? Me?)

Well the book I was thinking of reading next is Sebastian Faulkes' Birdsong but it looks awfully big and I'm not sure if it's worth it, knowing little about the book. Any thoughts?

Just read 'The Beach' by Alex Garland (quite a bit better than the film), and the 'Foundation Trilogy' by Isaac Asimov (which was ok...the first book in the trilogy is the best, probably because the actual story isn't that reliant on sci-fi stuff to drive the story onwards...the last two become a bit silly).

Am still reading 'Middlemarch' by George Eliot (been reading it for about a month, am about a quarter of the way through...), and am about to start 'The 39 Steps' by John Buchan, and 'Brazzaville Beach' by William Boyd.

I'm reading King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard. It's unexpectedly brilliant in my opinion!

Birdsong is excellent, studied it for A level. Its not that long, compared to some other books! Definately worth a read.

Contrasting to that, I'm currently reading the new Mark Haddon book..."A Spot of Bother"
