    An Equal Music, Vikram Seth. Stuck the Schubert on as well. Fantastic book - motivating me to go back and finish A Suitable Boy.

    I read that recently :yep: Excellent book. Got me hooked on Schubert, too! Went out and bought the Trout Quintet as soon as I finished reading An Equal Music :giggle:

    The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl by Belle de Jour.

    I feel like I'm completely wasting my time reading it. I hate Belle, she's a hooker but has delusions of grandeur and thinks she's some kind of intellectual just because she has a degree and reads the odd book or two (as she constantly reminds the reader). She reminds me of Myleene "not many people know I'm a classically trained pianist" Klass. Unfortunately, once I start reading a book, I feel I have to finish it, and that's the only thing which is stopping me from throwing the flipping thing out of the window.

    The Color Purple, Alice Walker. Don't know whether I'll persist with it though, all the intentional spelling mistakes irrationally annoy me.

    it's like, dead dead exciting in a way that only literary critical theory can be (i.e. not at all).

    I love reading books like that, it's nice to get different interpretations of theory etc.
