[Book Note] What Bimo is reading...  
Books just finished:

Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel: Good grief, was Lev Grossman ever right about the amount of outstanding literary quality/literary writing that can be found in genre fiction these days.

Joyland by Stephen King: Well, what can I say except:  Once a King fan, always a King fan. Also, summertime = Stephen King time.  Qick read, very enjoyable.


Currently reading:

Kein schöner Land by Patrick Findeis: German provincial life, growing up, family ties, repression. So far extremely well written, in a vivid and powerful "no nonsense" style. The author apparently knows how to deliver his blows. Tragedy is in the air. More on this book once I've finished.

Wolf Hall is amazing isn't it. It's like opening a window on to the court of Henry VIII. I've got Bringing Up the Bodies sitting waiting for me to read but I think I need to be in the right mood for it.
