I read 2 books most weeks - I am such a bookworm. I couldnt possibly list just one!............reading Patrick Swaye's autobiography at the mo and its fantastic.

Loved 'Tis" and "Angela's Ashes" by Frank McCourt - just brilliant. But then my 10yr old son who thankfully is also a 'reader' just finished the Beano's new annual lol and said was best book he has ever read haha!!

Everyone has their different type of 'read'

I nearly bought the Patrick Swayze's book in WHSmith as reduced to £12.99 but got it - thanks to a deal on this site - for £4.99 delivered from The Book People.

I am a big fan of his - his story is amazing, and unlike other celebs, this book hasnt been ghost written. (now am reading this back, quite sad really....but def no pun intended.)

My neighbour keeps going on about the twilight books. SHe was never a reader until she started on these and says they are amazing, but just not my cup of tea.

I used to be first in the queue for Sydney Sheldons books. They were just amazing

that is interesting as war and peace is a sort of epitome of a bind of a read. i once read crime and punishment as a simillar exercise, not bad, but not as accessable as say dickens. have you read 1984 by george orwell?
