I've just got a Kindle and am reading Oliver Twist, read it at school seventy years ago and am enjoying it more this time! Now I've downloaded several more. I like Jodi Picoult and have now started on Diana Chamberlain and find her novels well written.

Not really aimed at you but the person above your post who seems to be dropping this link into a few threads at he moment. You have actually recommended some good titles and just mentioned yours almost in passing, no problem with that at all.

'Under a Kaleidoscope Sky' is an under-rated classic

Apologies, I have only this week for the first time ventured into the world of Kindle, its related posts and its regulations and rules. And so was unaware. Re the first post ;- another classic `Crime and Punishment' by Dostoyevsky. Not a Christmas read but may tune in well with the drab winter months of January and February.

This is not the place for self-promo, read the info in 'An Important Announcement from Amazon'.

What books and authors have you found interesting? It is easier to recommend when we have a starting point. Do you like crime, thrillers, fantasy or sci fi, romantic fiction or historical novels, classics or comtemporary? I could recommend plenty of great reads but they may not be your kind of thing.

Thriller: Alistair MacLean;- Ice Station Zebra. ................., A Classic ;- Tolkien The Hobbit, 0r Pride and Prejudice, .................................Humour/ 20th Century Politics , Giovanna Guareschi;- The Little World of Don Camillo................Animals Gerald Durrell;- My family and other animals and its sequel Birds Beasts and other relatives. Science Fiction Arthur C Clarke ;- 2001 A Space Odysey......................................Classics (Insomnia cure but still good) Livy; The War with Hannibal. I enjoyed all these. And if you want to go way off the beaten track the book I wrote and just put up on Kindle One Life Two Worlds. But seriously, I suggest focus on classics of literture: the classics are classic becasue they are usually for all generations simply a good read, pulling you into the authors own world.

I'm not reading anything at the moment, as it's difficult to find a book without apostrophes that I can really get my teeth into.

As this is such a long trilogy, and because I am reading other things, I bought it on CD: Gormenghast. I have got about twenty minutes to go. A really great listen/read. Some superb description and the language/vocab is brilliant.
