Having temporarily fallen off the "mustn't buy any more books until I've read the ones I've got" wagon  Rolleyes I'm on this one that I got from a book swap:

One of James Patterson's co-authors and every bit as good as his offerngs.

I have just finished reading 'The Skeleton Cupboard' by Tanya Byron. IT documents a person's journey as a trainee clinical psychologist and the patient's that they work with. Really interesting, though ultimately I found it quite sad, as life and mental health could be so cruel! But don't let that put you off- still a great read!

This could be the right bookshop for you (or not).

I see you like funny chinese signs and the like. Here's a website that features a lot of that stuff regularly. With your permission of course Judge.

I have just finished reading 'The Happiness Trap' by Russ Harris. A brilliant book for anyone interested in psychotherapy or self-improvement on any level. It provides an practical approach to a therapy known as 'Acceptance and Commitment Therapy', or ACT. Very good and interesting.
Since this, I have just started reading 'The Sense of Style' by Steven Pinker, who is my favourite non-fiction writer. He wrote the Better Angels of Our Nature, which is certainly the best non-fiction book I have ever read and would easily make my top 5 best books generally. The Sense of Style is a style guide for writing well. It's accessible and interesting. However, my writing style possibly has yet to improve, despite having read the first three chapters...

I will be receiving what is hopefully The Complete Father Brown stories soon in the mail so I'll be on that. I also got two books recently, one on Johnny Carson and one written by the drummer of the Grateful Dead.

A very eclectic combination of subject matter, if I may say so. Personally, I regard Chesterton (Father Brown author) as the most under-rated writer in the English language.

Good reading!
