    I am reading Robert Rankin's The Witches of Chiswick. It is set in the future and everyone is over weight. Naturally slim people are treated as freaks and even become circus side shows. A giggle a minute.
    Anybody else reading a good book?

    Kind of reminds me of renaissance times when 'obesity' was seen as a sign of prosperity. Ah them were the days....

    I don't know if it's any good yet but I'm about to start reading Ingrid Betancourt's book - 'Even Silence Has an End'. For those not in the know, she was a Colombian politician that was captured and held hostage by FARC rebels for 6 years. I've never been much of a fan of fiction but love biographies.

    Re-reading "Three hands in the fountain", a historical thriller by Lindsey Davies - a very seedy, naughty PI in Roman times. Can recommend the whole series highly.

    I definitely recommend Kindle. I've had other ereaders but it's just so easy to get books onto your kindle - not just from amazon but you can also email books from other e-stores directly to yourself.

    DH likes it because he no longer has to lug 20 books on holiday:D

    All my book suggestions will be sci-fi, so unless anyone else admits to being a fan i won't bore you.....!
