I just posted something about putting a book in the lineup of books to read, and I thought it would be fun and informative to know what was the last book people finished reading.  Mine was Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded.  What was yours?

Thats my next book I think..

Is it good Dave?

Daniel Tammet - Born on a Blue Day

The Fry Chronicles by Stephen Fry.

He's always entertaining and endearing, but the book is so very English it's a little hard for this American reader to follow sometimes. It would have been more interesting if I were familiar with any of the British comedies he mentions beyond Blackadder, or recognized the names of his actor friends beyond Hugh Laurie, Rowan Atkinson, and Emma Thompson. Nevertheless, I recommend it for fans of Fry.

Yes its a great read, Stutz! 

I'm currently reading Hitch 22, Christopher Hitchens memoirs.  I am eking it out, one chapter a day at most, because it's his last and I don't want to get to the end.  I'm about half way through it.
