I've been reading a lot of the free or 1 pound books from Amazon Prime, but most are bang average at best. Currently reading this from Tom Bradby (the ITV new reader), and it's a bit slow paced for me.

 

Secret Service: The Sunday Times top ten bestseller

 

Have just bought this for a pound for my next Kindle read. Cheers for the recommendation.

Good read although a bit repetitive at times which I suppose was inevitable. The parts from JJ about building a team and how to develop young players are very interesting.

Just finished this. Another quality DCI Banks outing.

Very far fetched but still very enjoyable and easy to read.

Ron Burgundy

On recommendation from a friend,  "Pointless, A season with Britain's worst football team".

It's a few years old but follows East Stirlingshire for a season. Just about to start it.

Typical Baldacci. Fast paced entertaining book.

The Simon Scarrow Eagles of the Empire is fantastic, I've read them all so I envy your 9 to go status :(

It's a good series. Also a TV show on Netflix. The first three series sort of follow the books (each series covers 2 books) then they start to diverge from the books.

We might be talking a out two different things.  The series I'm talking about is about Alfred, Uhtred and the Vikings based on the Bernard Cornwell books. Apologies if you thought I meant a TV series based on the Simon Scarrow books, it's not, although having read the first couple of them it would be a great source material for a show.

We were at x purposes, but it's all good :)

I think done well the Macro and Cato stories would make a brilliant series of films or a TV series.

 

Adam Driver is Cato and Dave Bautista is Macro in my minds eye when reading the books.

Just finished this. Extremely far fetched as always but still enjoyable.

Patricia Highsmith My favourite crime writer . She writes so well about flawed characters who tend to get involved in a crime unintentionally and things seem to spiral out of control . Or often writes about someone being obsessive about something or someone . Like this one I’m currently  reading which is about a family who become estranged to dangerous levels when some of them Become bible thumpers . She also wrote “ The talented Mr Ripley “ “ Stangers on a train “ and other classics . A great author .

Recently read ‘Travellers in the Third Reich’ by Julia Boyd.
It’s letters etc from people visiting Germany in the 30s

 

A very interesting read with a growing sense of unease as the years pass up to 1939.
