    Books

    I am currently reading "Pepe - My Autobiography", for some bizarre reason I have Jamie Carraghers and Fernando Torres' books too and I hate Liverpool.

    I'll let you know if it's any good, Carra's is brilliant btw!

    At the moment I'm reading A Game of Thrones. After watching season 1 I just wanted to read the books! Pretty nice read, but a lot of characters... It's sometimes a bit confusing

    Onto the 3rd book now, a Storm of Swords. Slow start but it's getting better.

    I'm not reading anything now, but a friend of mine gave me Somerset Maugham's "Of Human Bondage" on my birthday.
    Planning to start reading it during this week.

    Carraghers' is brilliant - Fowlers' and Gerrards' are great too.

    I'm reading The Drop by Michael Connelly - he's one of my favourites.

    Michael Owen's autobiography... The only books I tend to read these days are autobiographies.

    It's about hunting down prominent Nazis after the war, i.e. what the American and the British did to help them escape and/or use them against Soviets later on. Good read.

    the credibility of those books is questionable at times though

    Exploring Leadership: Individual, Organizational, and Societal Perspectives, by Richard Bolden. Shitty book for one of my courses.

    On the bedside table I've got "Den allvarsamma leken" (transl. "the straight-faced game") by Hjalmar Söderberg. Shouldn't mean anything to u guys, but he's one of the best swedish authors ever.

    Next up is Mötley Crüe's autobiography, looking forward to it!

    That one is not just another conspiracy theory book, on the contrary. The author draws conclusions on documents and reports, he doesn't assume and "deduce" things. He always says what can be proven and what not. I've read a lot of historical books, and this one is professionally written.

    ^^^

    Read Hunger Games at Xmas too, read them too fast though. Was nearly fed up of reading them by the 3rd book



    Reading Bram Stokers Dracula as it was free with iBooks. It's so good it's hard to believe it was written in 1897
