The written word could turn out to be man's biggest downfall,or his greatest achievement . Who knows? I was once told "believe nothing that you hear and half of what you see" this has proven to be sound advice. As for books, well I have many and always enjoy reading something new that takes my fancy, a bit like music I suspect? They can transport you or not depending on your imagination. I would no more recommend you the books I read anymore than the speakers I use. What I would say is read, when you want, what you want. And just sometimes, if you can read something outside your comfort zone, you might be surprised...

Jo Nesbo is brilliant. Just read the latest Harry Hole (pronounced 'holay') mystery. Brilliant.

Currently working my way through the Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths. All about an archaeologist with a troubled personal life who keeps being pulled in by the police to help solve crimes old and new. Not exactly highbrow but very entertaining.
