I think fifty shades of grey might be your thing.

That's so last year, keep up.

Perhaps you could dig me up something by Julie Burchill?

The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson 

The Cicero books by Robert Harris and the Cromwell books by Hilary Mantel

And the Babylon series (Hotel, Hospital, Wedding etc ) are good beach reading ...

I've read the Cromwell books, fascinating, I saw the hundred year old man today ill look again tomorrow at the airport.

I really enjoyed it, I bought it in the kindle sale not expecting much and ended up tearing through it in one sitting

I'm looking forward to the third Cromwell book, even though I now feel so invested in the character I don't want to see him executed.

 EXECUTED????? 

whenever I'm in London with an hour to spare I take a quick walk through the Tudor section in the National Portrait Gallery, she really has brought those people to life.

I still think you need to be looking at chic lit

Which part of Torremolinos are you going?

18/05/2013 at 21:36

I read Running with the Kenyans - quite enjoyed that.

Not sure if you're into your cycling but the Tyler Hamilton book is very good.

And one that I'm not sure I class as 'holiday reading', and something that's not normally my thing. But I can very strongly recommend 'Boy in the River' by Richard Hoskins. Said author is 'Home Run' on the sub 3 thread (hence why i bought it, supporting a mate etc), But it is very VERY good. As the reviews on Amazon will testify -

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Boy-River-shocking-ritual-sacrifice/dp/1447207904

It's actually quite disturbing in places (quite a lot of places actually), but is one of those books that I genuinely couldn't put down. It would be fair comment to say I'm biased based on who's written it, but I genuinely would say the same things if I'd read it and had no idea who the author was.

"Chic" or "chick" SR?  Big difference.

I think if you want have a dig at Puffy it will have more impact if you use the correct word.

Iain m banks, Peter f Hamilton, Alastair Reynolds .. Oops a bit sci-fi orientated 

18/05/2013 at 21:56

Nope the addition of the two extra words does nothing to improve the comic value - I suggest you employ a script writer rather than relying on your own material.

You wish.

This is what happens when mummy leaves the top off the gin bottle.

Me or him?

It just so happens that my mood is influenced by Bombay Saphire

How about  The Humans by Matt Haig. Sounds an interesting read Puffy
