I did this a while ago but it was quite good for book recommendations.


Last book i read was Pompeii by Richard Harris

I didn't put it down and read it in about 3 days...it was the best book i've ever read! I gave it to my dad to read on holiday, and loved it too...he kept talking about it which made me read it again! Obviously it was a subject of interest due to my archaeology. Highly recommend

What was the last or best book you read and why?

I have just finished the book 'The Garbage [email protected] by Elizabeth Laird.
It is a childrens novel, but I am currently teaching a yr6 class and will be reading it next term. I really enjoyed it though, it actually made me cry...

Danny Wallace - Yes man
very funny and warm book.
he speaks to a man on a bus about his life and how to improve it and the bloke says " say yes more" so he does as a challenge.
Says yes to all questions from invites to junk mail to buying a nissan figaro.

Absolutely the mutts. Now I am reading another of his books called Join Me.

last book i read was "the eight legged atomic dustbin will eat itself" by martin roach, it was written in the 90's all about pop will eat itself the wonder stuff and neds, their rise to 'fame' and where to from there. i have the latest edition with new material from the present day, absolutly brilliant book if your into your 90's indie music
