Don't Point That Thing At Me - Kyril Bonfiglioli. I also just reread The Watchmen which is a fun read.

Since he died this year, another good series to crack on for the summer would be Peter Temple's Jack Irish series. The first is 'Bad Debts'. A great beach read.

Richard Russo's 'Nobody's Fool' is a great read. I also liked Tom Drury's 'End of Vandalism' as well as Magnus Mills 'All Quient On The Orient Express'.

I always recommend George MacDonald Frasher's 'Flashman' series. Start with 'Royal Flash', just because that was the first one i read and it is still my fave.

If you want some non-fiction, Krakauer's 'Under The Banner Of Heaven' is totally good, as is Wright's 'Going Clear'. Anything by Mary Roach is also awesome, though I'm a fan of 'Gulp'.

I also recently read Keith Rosson's 'The Mercy Of The Tide' and have 'Smoke City' to read. A totally random book I picked up in an airport last year was 'Dark Matter' by Blake Crouch that was worth the admission.

Right now I'm reading "Oliver Twist ". After that I have "Empire of Liberty" queued up. "EoL" is one of those history books where it's like trying to drink water from a fire hydrant. It's not very light reading. But I think I can handle it since I kissed Mary Jane goodbye and am getting my attention span back.

Quintron in Europa! A great way to spend a couple hours any time of the year.
