As usual, I'm partway through several books at once: Caitlin Moran's Moranifesto (a compilation of her essays and columns), Slipping by Lauren Beukes (a short story anthology, mostly cyberpunk) and A Feast of Sorrows by Angela Slatter (another book of short stories, fairy tales mostly). I'm enjoying them all.
Stuff on my laptop! Yes, it's all good!

I'm stuck in a time warp. Everything I'm reading at the moment or plan to read is based on World War One. Getting a little confused with one on my laptop and another in book form. Will do a compare and contrast at the end of the month. This was not an intentional move - just serendipitous.
Hello grann!

I, too, enjoy books on WWI....

Have Paul Ham's 'History of WWI'.

A couple of books about Sir John Monash.

Can u recommend any others'?

Pick up some by Kate Morton. She usually delves back into WW1, or at least the three of hers I have read have done so. Formulaic page turners. Loved "My dear I wanted to tell you" by Louisa Young. Currently reading "Bride of an ANZAC", autobiography by Queenie Sunderland, and will then move on to "The Summer Before the War" by Helen Simonson. Enjoyed her first book, so have great hopes for this one. Happy reading.

Just realised you may be into fact rather than fiction, but these books certainly give you an appreciation of what it was like to live through the war to end all wars.

Thanks, grann.....
I just bought Paul Ham's new book, 'Passchendaele'.
Will get Brian Wilson's autobiography from Library.
Have read all of Kate Morton's books.....fabulous!

I've got a few manga series on the go at the moment- Noragami: Stray God, Tokyo Ghoul, Attack On Titan, and Pokemon Adventures. I never really used to read much of this but I've since become a bit of a fan. They're quick to read and the illustrations are incredible. The authors and artists are super talented!
'Good Cop', about Ron Iddles, who's due to retire from Victoria Police, next January, after many decades', & in Homicide for 25 years', solving many cases'.

A very good read!
