I have almost given up on "Mr Toppit" as I am not enjoying it much and have started on another couple of books including a "Wallander" novel by Henning Mankell a series I am becoming addicted to.

Reading: "Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science" by Atul Gwande.

Title is kinda self explanatory.

I was given the hype and so I bought and read that book. So disappointing, IMO. Not that good. Post back and let us know how you liked it.

Elegance of the Hedgehog for the second time. Charming and thought-provoking book.

Barron's Painless Grammar. My daughter requested this one from a book fair, and I wanted to review it.

Not reading so much as doing, but I also have a book of puzzles based on the game Bananagrams --great for autodidacts.

Just started Reservation Blues by Sherman Alexie. Beautiful prose so far--not sure where the story is going yet.
