I know we already have the Sleuths Bookshelf, but people there talk about their general tastes, what books they liked in childhood etc. I'd like all of us to share with others what we are reading now, do we like it or not and to recommend the books we like. Possibly we could have a similar thread for movies.

Time to revive this thread. I just bought 3 books from Amazon and don't know which to read first.

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Agatha Christie) And I still like to call it the Murdr of dan Ackroyd but then a certain player of this game called me names! ;-)

Murder at Vicarage (Agatha Christie)

The Scarecrow (Michael Connely)

I'll probably go with Dan Ackroyd first but am still undecided at this point until the arrive at my doorstep!

hehehe I love Dan Ackroyd in Blues Brothers.

Anyway this year I've got into reading Karin Slaughter courtesy of the other half's mum who bought me one of her books for christmas. I couldn't put the first book down. I've read all but one of the books now and with each book the only reason I've put it down is because I've fallen asleep :)

And Ctown I'd read The Scarecrow first......then you can tell me if it's any good :D

Just finished Duma Key by Stephen King. Very good.
I am now starting Lord of The Rings, since everyone I know has seen the movies or read the books.

I finished the Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein a couple days ago. I always like to have some non-fiction on hand to kill some time or help me get to sleep.

I just finished The Scarecrow. Good book Ms. Helen, not what I wanted as its a thriller instead of a mystery.

Now onto my next one, "The Murder of DAN Ackroyd" I think John Belushi did it! ;-)

I read a good psycho who dun it type: Discovering the Body. Not noir but good.
Harlan Corban's latest was good too.
Anyone ever read Ian Rankin? I've read most of his this last year. Not the last Rebus or the latest, tho. He writes well.

I'm reading The Death Maze by Ariana Franklin, a twelfth century murder mystery which holds a special interest to me because the victim is none other than - Rosamund Clifford. The real one, who was the favourite mistress of Henry II of England. Half of it is historically improbable, if not impossible, but not uninteresting all the same. I'd recommend it only to history addicts like myself :)

I am re-reading Horns, NOS4r2 and Black Heart Box, all by Joe Hill.

It wasn't really conscious or anything, my copy of Horns had dropped off the book shelf so started reading it, wanted to re-read NOS4r2 and something came up while hanging out with Blueberry Hill that reminded my of something in Black Heart Box, so started reading that.

My copy of Horns is actually signed by Joe Hill whom I saw when he did a book signing in London. He read a chapter of NOS4r2 before it came out.

Even if I'm a big mistery novels fan, right now I'm reading Schopenhauer's "The art of being right".
Kinda fun to read and practical too
