Just finished Naked in Knightsbridge by Nicky Schmidt, a very funny and light hearted read, similar to Bridget Jones, just about to start Marrying Out of Money, also by Nicky Schmidt, or maybe An Inconvenient Marriage by Ruth Ann Nordin - not sure yet, both have good reviews. Love to read a mixture of authors but mainly Jeffrey Archer, Lilian Harry, John Grisham to mention a few. Quite fancy giving Stieg Larsson a go too if any one can recommend a starter for me?

Your should start with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The three books are reasonably self contained but that said you will get so much more out of them if you read them in order. And if you read the second there is a huge 'cliff hanger' that leads to the last one.

I have just finished the new biography of Katherine of Aragon which was excellent - will pribably tread a free one now - a romance - for relaxation!

Many thanks Bluestocking. I am new to Kindle, but love it already - I was drawn to Naked in Knightsbridge (1) because it was written by a new author, (2) because it had good reviews, (3) because I needed something lighthearted and (4) because it was a cheap download at 46p and I wanted to be sure it would download ok - didn't want to risk lots of £'s incase i did something wrong when purchasing and downloading :-0

They've just started to charge £3.99 for the William Walker. Not my usual sort of read but thought it quite well written and very funny in bits.

Just finished Cedilla which was excellent. Now reading the superb Omnibus: Albert Angelo, House Mother Normal & Trawl (3 titles) as a paperback as it isn't available for the Kindle - as BSJ had a habit of publishing "odd" books (holes cut in pages, books published as a series of pamphlets in a box) they don't really work electronically.

Actually feeling slightly disenchanted with the Kindle. Most of the stuff I want to read isn't available electronically (maybe I'm picky but as much as I love reading I prefer to read authors I like and books I actually want to read, not just anything just because it is free) and if it is it is ludicrously expensive, usually more than the hardback, which I think is farcical.

I've just finished reading Knight on the Potomac which was excellent! I wasn't sure that I would like it to start with, but as I got into the story it was gripping. Funny too. I'm not feeling too well today so I want something really light to read next and have just downloaded Jack And The Giant (even though my TBR is huge!) but I love things written by kids and this seems to just fit the bill for something that won't be too challenging for my poor head..

Payday for me on monday so I might just throw caution to the wind and pay it! If book lending comes to UK before you get a chance to buy it you can borrow it off me ;-)

I've just finished reading Tess of the d'Urbervilles - never read it before but decided it was about time I did after watching Faulks on Fiction. Needed to read something more lighthearted after that so following lots of recommendations on here, I've just started William Walker's First Year of Marriage. I'm already annoying the other half by laughing aloud every few minutes!

Ive just finished No Easy Road its about the experiences of a child growing up in the care system in the 1950's. A very moving story. Ive now just started The Hanging Shed Im only 12% in but already hooked!! William Walker's First Year of Marriage is hilarious. What a shame its now £3.99!! Glad I got it while it was free.

So... I started From Notting Hill with Love . . . Actually on Sunday night and I just finished it tonight (Tuesday). I have to say that it was one of the best 'Chick Lit' books that I have ever read... and there are plenty to go by! It is a movie waiting to happen and I would be there first in line. For anybody that even has a passing interest in 'Chick Flicks' or likes 'Chick Lit' then you must read this book! It made me very happy. :)

I think next I will be starting William's Progress since I was able to get it when it dropped to £4.99.

Oh and I'm glad this discussion is also liked by so many others... I have added quite a few books to my Wish List because of suggestions from here.

Happy reading everybody! :)

I read Jack And The Giant in just a few minutes! Enjoyed it though and find it inspiring that a class of school children are experimenting with publishing on the kindle - what a good confidence booster! I then turned back to Georgette Heyer as I am having a run on her novels but chose a whodunnit this time that I've never read before! Penhallow I was really pleased to find that it is set in the area where I live! It's set on Bodmin Moor and I live in a village on the edge of the moor - it also mentions Liskeard (which is our nearest town) and the town of Bodmin. Had no idea about this before, so what a nice surprise! :0)

I have just finished reading Switched (Trylle Trilogy, Book 1) and I liked it so much, I downloaded part 2 Torn (Trylle Trilogy, #2) straight away and I'm currently reading that!
I have also added lots from the recommendations on here, which has led me to a problem......deciding which one to read next!!!! :-)

Just finished Abby Cooper: Psychic Eye: A Psychic Eye Mystery. A story about a mostly accurate psychic who gets mixed up in a murder investigation, written by a psychic. I enjoyed it and would read again. I downloaded it after browsing randomly thru the Kindle store and it had favourable reviews. Its a light read and if like me, you don't believe in psychics, you may still enjoy it.

Next on the list is Marius' Mules: The Invasion of Gaul, which you may think is a bit of a contrast but I like my historical novels as much as I like my crime thrillers, fantasy, science, travel, etc. It's set in 58BC and is about a legion commander who gets drawn into politics whilst trying to fight battles in Gaul. ( A very simple summary - read the blurb to understand it better) Not written by a legion commander :)

I got these books are they any good haven't got around to reading them yet

I just finished Turned (Book #1 in the Vampire Journals) a bargain at 71p and pretty good start to a new series if you like paranormal stuff.

I just started Sins of a Wicked Duke (Historical Romance) by Sophie Jordan, which sounds a bit naughty, and is a bit in places ;) I'd recommend it to any historical romance fans. It's a pretty good one. £3.50 at the moment. I've almost finished it today to be honest. 75% of the way through.

Just finishing Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach. Very funny, in its macabre way. I might try her Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex: The Curious Coupling of Sciences and Sex.

Next up...probably either American Pastoral or The Human Stain by Philip Roth. Late-period Roth has been rather good!

Stiff was good and so was Bonk. No pun/innuendo intended. Her books are informative and amusing.

Just finished Last Train from Liguria though it wasn't that dear when I bought it! Very good and thought provoking read.
Just abandoned Middlemarch - again - our book club's next volume - which I shan't be discussing!
Just started Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools which is shaping up a treat.
