I'm actually thinking of getting a hold of a book about an explorer or 2 to try and see if I can get into it.... I really enjoy learning info on our country's history when I read snippets at places I visit or someone tells me about thier exploits,  so thinking maybe I just need to find a subject that suits my interest to get me hooked.

If you've ever enjoyed a fantasy book, you'll love Joe Abercrombie.

Or David  Eddings. His Belgarion and Sparhawk series are some of the BEST.

Have just finished books 1-10 of Daniel Silva's Gabriel Allon series. Like most long running series, I find that it is a good idea to take a break from them with something else for a few days/weeks, as they can become a bit repetitive.

Currently re-reading Jefferey Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme series of books.

The wife and I read a LOT.

Cheers, Bruce

I'm currently wading through Burke and Wills by Peter FitzSimons. It's heavy going, and I'm not sure if I like his style of writing. I'll give it a few more chapters, even though i know how it ends ;D ;D


One and a half chapters in and I'm finding it a hard read compared to the others of his i've read.
Too much of the 1800's style of emlish, even though he claims to have modernised it.
