    Re: What are you reading?

    :oops: I shelved Moby Dick … watched the old original movie, intending to watch the Patrick Stewart remake. The book just got too boggy for my eyes.

    The Patrick Stewart version is really good. We got it free with the Daily Mail I think [DVD] and watched it a couple of years ago. It’s very long though – about 3-4 hours so it took 2 evenings to see!

    With the aniversary coming up I am reading everthing about it.

    Just finished reading “Titanic Survivor” by Margaret Jessop.

    This poor woman was on the Titanic in 1912 and was rescued, to then get a job on her sister
    ship “Britannic” when she was sunk in 1916.

    that is unlucky.

    Ohhhh I remember seeing a documentary on the White Star Line and the sinking of the Britannic [dubiously in the med susected wartime torpedo if brain is working] and she was interviewed … brain also wants to say she had something to do with the Olympic [which also had a mishap].

    I have the Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins on my shelf – incredible read although I have never finished it. I think I might just have to pick it back up.

    Dawkins is the way forward. Watchmaker is on my list. I have Stephen Hawking Grand Design to read after I have finished God Delusion. One of my favourite books is Tricks of the mind, by Derren Brown. Very interesting, he is also an avid supporter of Dawkins. I go back and re-read bits of it all the time.

    Heard mixed reports, but not sure which of the trilogy is the best … might dabble a view when it becomes cheaper on kindle/itunes.

    From what I have been given to believe … it is pure titilating fiction, far far removed from real.

    Re: What are you reading?

    Just started Keith Richard’s autobiography ‘Life’ and very impressed with it so far.

    Coming to the end of Patrick O’Brian’s ‘Master and Commander’, which seemed like a voyage around the world because of all the unexplained naval jargon.

    Still plodding through Chalres Darwin’s Origin of Species, mostly because I seem to be too tired to get into it everytime I pick it up!
