Next time you're driving across the Taklamakan Desert ,Mobz get an audio book on. Tremendous stuff.  Driving about whilst some cunt reads you a story. 

Radcliffe and Maconie usually does me

I read a fair bit. Probably more than I watch TV. Depends on the mood, but like a mix of fiction and non-fiction. 

Even though I listen to a lot of podcasts, I have never been able to get into audiobooks. Just don't appeal. 

But I also said I'd never get a Kindle as I liked the feel of a proper book. 

Since I got my Kindle about four years ago I haven't paid for a book since. All available free on the interweb. Magic!

One of those things that seems easy but is extremley difficult to do well. Take that last sentance for example . I couldn't even spell ' extremely' correctley nor ' sentence' in the second line, nor 'correctly' in the third. The editing and proofreading alone would be a fucking knightmare.

I have a hard time retaining and absorbing what i've read from digital books. Physical books no bother, but the moment it's digitised i have fuck all recall.

Certainly much cheaper though!

Aye I'm old fashioned when it comes to books.  Plus I read to help me sleep and reading on a screen keeps me awake for hours.

Love a good book and read all the usual Scottish authors and such like.

Also like a good history book but not one for autobiographies.

Old fashioned as well and prefer actual books as opposed to a kindle.

Currently reading a book about some Hibs fan who supports Hearts for a season. Not sure why. The author seems a bit of a wank.

Not sure why you're reading it, why he did it, or both?

Finished this last night: 'NITRO: The Incredible Rise and Inevitable Collapse of Ted Turner's WCW'

Cracking read if you were into wrestling and the Monday Night Wars at that time. 

But also insightful in terms of business.You spunk a load of money to chase success and get it over the competition. But then you overspend, take your eye off the ball and the product turns shit, meaning your competitor can overtake you and then buy you and put you out of business. 

Also the cover is a cracking photo of Morag tossing Tup's salad.

Bought a Kindle years ago but it rarely gets used these days. Was useful when I was commuting up and down the railways but since then just preferred the real paper and ink deal.

Im not the speediest of readers but probably get through a couple of books a month. mostly historical fiction/non-fiction or sci-fi/fantasy stuff.

Just about to get stuck into a few Alistair Maclean novels (Where Eagles Dare, Guns of Navarone..)

Anyone read the Inspector McLean series of books by James Oswald?

Edinburgh based detective with a touch of the paranormal about them - well worth a read if not already done so.

Beekeeper of Aleppo . Listened to the audio version whilst walking. Really good 

😄 I read that as "whilst wanking" - I thought, "ooh, it must be quite racy".

Last book of the Uthred of bebbanburg "Last Kingdom" series has just been released - looking forward to reading it but also disappointed that it's the last one of what has been a brilliant series of books.

Where the Crawdad's Sing.   The best book I've read in many a while.

Just started "The way of all flesh" by Ambrose Parry which is a pseudonym for a joint collaboration between Christopher Brookmyer and his wife Marisa Haetzman.

Set in Edinburgh in 1840 around medicine and murder. So far so good.

Aberdeen city features in a lot of his standalone books in the Jack Parlabane series and it's not overly positive either!
