Ken Follet- World Without End, I really enjoyed Pillars of the Earth so hope this follow-up is just as good.
Terry Pratchett-Mort & Wyrd Sisters, getting there with the discworld series :)
Ken Follet-A Dangerous Fortune
Naked - David Sedaris
Three Minute Meditator - Harp and Smiley
Crimes and Puzzlement - which is one of those read-the-paragraph, look-at-the-picture, solve-the-crime books. Amusing.
