Love it. I have all of Tom Robbins' books, he's been my favorite since forever. My best ever was Jitterbug Perfume.

Vulcan 607 - it tells the story of the RAF bombing raid on Port Stanley airport in the Falkland Islands, after the Argentine invasion.

Re: What are you currently reading?

Expeditionary Force, according to Amazon a series of twelve science fiction books.

Started with book 1 and am now on book 5, but now it keeps mentioning stuff I don't remember reading. At first, I put this down to my goldfish memory but with some research, I found there is book number 3.5 which actually should be read halfway through book 4

I also found book 7.5 which I will likely skip as it is only available as an audible and I prefer reading; it is much easier to skip the boring bits.

Re: What are you currently reading?

This is actually a good thread. Could be more active.

The New Map by Daniel Yergin. As always, Yergin writes entertainingly and brilliantly about the economic and geopolitics of energy, and how this is going to shape the energy transition.

Re: What are you currently reading?

Has everybody stopped reading? Went onto a buying spree at Orell Fuessli recently, so here is what I am reading at the moment:

The Boys From Biloxi by John Grisham. What's there to say, finest Deep South Grisham stuff.

The Puls of Africa by Alain Mabanckou and Abdourahman Waberi. A light, caleidoscopic, A-Z compilation of short essays and anecdotes about Africa. Very refreshing.

Nuclear Folly - A New History of the Cuban Missile Crisis by Serhii Plokhy. Just starting this, I needed something to cheer me up.

Me too, but I would like them summarised!

I'm pretty sure I don't need to buy the book to read about all the dirty details though.

I'm actually going to listen to it on Audible, because I have to hear Harry's own voice talking about his frost bitten penis
