Reading as in next to my bed? Just Law, Helena Kennedy- not quite sure why i'm reading this as my interviews are long gone, but i picked it up when i was down there and have kept reading. Compelling and interesting arguments.

As in i have started reading and not yet finished, but have not abandoned? That would be War and Peace (over a third through, getting there slowly) and Dickens' Bleak House.

"The Wasp Factory" by Iain Banks. It is totally gruesome and was recommended to me by my best friend and teacher. I've read most of it, it is compelling but it lacks a certain je ne sais quoi!

Most people have already read this, but I'd only ever seen the films, and I love it so far:

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

(I read the first one before that)

I am impressed with the book, it's very enjoyable and there are lots of bits that aren't in the film (doesn't surprise me).

Aside from that, lots of books/journal articles....bleh, research is an arse sometimes!

Over the past 2 weeks I have read:

Dune - Frank Herburt
Messiah of Dune - Frank Herburt
Children of Dune - Frank Herburt
The God-emperor of Dune - Frank Herburt
Wasted - Marya Hornbacher

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I read wasted, but I mustsay it is a really good book, although it is quite a challenging read, given the subject matter (anorexia and bulimia).

At present I have just started Herotics of Dune, as I decided that I would read the first 6 books in the Dune saga.

I want to read wasp factory at some point as I am a fan of his work (both his sci fi novels written as Iain M Banks and his other fiction as well.

The LOTR books are on my to-read list, so I should be re-reading them soon.
