Reading 'Bill the Bastard'. For those who saw the movie 'War Horse', this is a true story about a war horse in WW1. Author has had to pad it out a bit but still an interesting read.

Been reading a bit recently:

The Handmaid's Tale Margaret Atwood
The Blind Assassin Margaret Atwood
We Are All Made of Glue Marina Lewycka
Mr Rosenblum's List Natasha Solomons
Spike Milligan's Unpublished Box 18 edited by Norma Farnes
Touching the Void Joe Simpson
The Weekend Bernhard Schlink
The Unknown Terrorist Richard Flanagan

With a long break due soon, I will be following some recommendations from earlier in the thread.

... and just yesterday I purchased Wisden's 150th edition, which I will put next to the other ones ...

I would suggest that you rather read a dictionary and pay particular attention to the definition of discussion.
