I don't make as much time as I would like to for reading. When I'm not working, socialising, doing stuff on my PC, reading computer mags, or doing something else, I like to read books.

Mostly I only get a chance to do this when I'm traveling from A to B (on public transport or planes - not when I'm cycling or driving, but sometimes when I'm walking!).

Autobiographies / biographies are probably my favourite books to read (other people's lives are normally so much more interesting than my own!).

I have also been known to read crime fiction mainly trashy women detective novels avidly.

Here you'll find reviews of some of my favourite recent reads, books I would definitely recommend.
If you get a chance to read any of them I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Until I got a computer I rarely read any sort of magazine. Now I can often be found with my nose buried in a computer magazine. My favourites at the moment are .net magazine www.netmag.co.uk (link opens in new browser window) and Internet Magazine (sadly now defunct).
