I loved Shantaram! I didn't take it too seriously but enjoyed the story from start to end.

I'm currently reading The Girl Who Played With Fire and hoping it doesn't disappoint me like The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo did.

Perfume by Patrick Suskind?

If so, it's one of my all-time favourites and I've read it several times.

That's the one! I have downloaded it but don't think I should start reading it now as need to drop kids at school in the morning and have this very bad habit of staying up late trying to finishing every book in one go. I did that with 'the help' and was up till 5 in the morning and the whole next day was sooooooo tough

@coco pops - both are excellent books, but I think The Secret is the best "positivity" book there is.

I am currently reading Bill Bryson's At Home - AN EXCELLENT BOOK! It tells the history of families and homes. In example why are homes built as they are? Why do we have a kitchen and separate living room / bedroom? Why do we use salt and pepper and not example cinnamon and chilli? Why do buildings look like they look etc. Answers to endless questions about human history.

I read this over the summer and loved it! Tonnes of trivia and interesting historical facts. Mr Bryson rarely disappoints does he?

I'm reading The Poisonwood Bible at the moment. It's been on my list to read for a long time and so far so good....

Out of curiousity, are you all avid readers mothers of toddlers or babies at the moment? Quite ashamed of myself if you are as the last book I read was when i was in the hospital to have my baby, almost a year ago. Havent been able to pick up a book since then. last book I read was Atonement by Ian McEwan.

Yip I have a 22 month old. I am really lucky that she is quite content and sleeps for 2-3 hours during the day which give me an hour or so while she is sleeping to run round the house with the mop, clean the bathrooms etc and then an hour to read. Doesnt always work out that way but my books are my escapism and chill out

LOVE Bill Bryson - will make sure I get a copy of this on my next trip to the mall! Also a (reasonably) new mum and will be hard to find the time but will have it on hand when the occasion arises

Absolutely LOVED Shantaram, The Help, Room and Water for Elephants!

I have to say I was a little dissapointed by One Day, whilst its an fantastic book it didnt quite match my expectations after hearing all the hype. Still, I had trouble putting it down!!

Just started A week in December, which will be followed by The Slap, We need to talk about Kevin and When God was a rabbit

My fave all time book has to be The Book Thief!

Cant wait till Xmas so I can stock up again! Think I will be adding Bill Bryson's At home to the wish list!

I've not read The Secret, but I'd heard such good reviews about it. My friends were raging about it, o I thought I'd get this one to see what the hype is about.
I've not read much, but so far I'm not feeling it either.....maybe I'll try and borrow the secret to compare.
But right now I'd rather be reading Eat,Pray,Love...which I also got Big Grin

I was given The Secret BOOK and found it a bit clumsy, for want of a better word? Once I watched The Secret MOVIE I "got it" a lot more and love it, nothing new but makes sense. Even got hubby watching it!

That's so true!! If I were to choose, I'd go for the physical book. but the virtual ones are easy to share

Reading an autobiographical account Behind the Veil by Lydia Laube. She penned it over 20 years ago. Very interesting. .

Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy but its hard going right now. Think I'm on chapter 10 and still finding it incredibly boring. Once I've started a book I have to finish so slogging away as fast as I can.
Before that I read Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve. DD had downloaded it into my Kindle as its on her school book reading list for the year. Seriously weird. Don't know what the author puts on his shreddies in the morning, But definitely not milk!
If you have kids with vivid imaginations they're going to love it.
