I just read "The Science of Sherlock Holmes" in german: Die Wissenschaft bei Sherlock Holmes und die Anfänge der Gerichtsmedizin by E.J. Wagner.
It is for me some fun because of the connection to Sherlock and some work related reading because of things I do professionally.

You can learn a lot but it is also enjoyable to read.

 

I am intrigued... what do you do professionally? *strokes invisible goatee*

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

So I've just finished 'Ruth' by Elizabeth Gaskell and it was incredible! Now I'm not sure what to read next. I spent about half an hour standing in front of my bookshelf last night trying to decide but realised I was too emotionally drained from 'Ruth' to decide then. Any suggestions?

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I'm actually reading several books right now, on top of all the fanfiction I can safely cover in a few hours a day: Ivan Hoe, The Other Boleyn Girl, a textbook on Evolution, a 10 story anthology of Poe and the second half of the Sherlock Holmes canon (the novels.) Yeah, this is the truth. I almost literally have a book in every room of the house. Plus, the two on my desk and fanfic on my phone, I think there are ten or so fanfics I'm following at the moment. LOL, you can all laugh at me! Sometimes I get so into a story that I stand at the stove and read it while I cook.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I really like Philippa Gregory's books. I live just up the road, literally, from where Anne Boleyn's sister and husband lived (a firens lives i part of the moated manor house that was theirs)  and we have a local pub called The Anne Boleyn (the Bullen's- for that is what they were- were big landowners around here).I am also a long term fan of Poe- I enjoy his poetry too.

Took up the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series, currently in book 3, A Storm of Swords.

It's amazing!

No, not what you think. I am not a pathologist. From time to time I have to read forensic reports. I look at it from the other side of the fence, like Mr. Crayhill.

Ah right. Still sounds interesting thought.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I'm still reading the thriller "Die da kommen" (org. "Uninvited"). Wow, it's getting really creepy... And of course the translation is flawless, Susi http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

My mum is reading this at the moment and she really likes the protagonist. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

I will have a go when she's finished.

I am reading 'Love Always' by Harriet Evans at the moment. It was a birthday present and I wouldn't have bought it myself because it is pretty much made up like a typical chick flick, which I ususually don't like at all. But it is actually more of a family story and it is really quite nice.

"Nocarz" by Magdalena Kozak. I don't know if there is an English version.

"The Martian Chronicles" by Ray Bradbury. One of my all time favourites. I read it every three or four years. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smart.png

He's one of the best! His short stories are so toughing. I think he understands how people work.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Absolutely. I've just recently used one for my private lesson, but I forgot its name. (Shame on me!) It was about a pupil on another planet who was forced into a closet by his (or her) classmates and hence missed the only two hours of sunlight for the next century.

Creepy, but unfortunately most of the time you think: "Yes, people are that way" http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/blooper.png

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Okay, I just finished the Thriller from Liz Jensen. Umm, call me naive but I would have preferred a happy ending. Though, it was great stuff to read.

Briliant idea. It's been ages since I've last read it. I should keep it in mind for the summer holidays.

I love CP signatures, Molly. Should get one again myself. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png


I just finished "1916" by Morgan Llywelyn (research for my new book) and now I'm tempted to read "In Transition" about Benedict. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
