WTF? British 14-Year-Old Cryogenically Frozen

I struggle to read fiction for pleasure.. I can count the number of fiction books I've read cover to cover for pleasure on one hand.
I did quite enjoy jackie chan's bio - I heard mixed opinions that, that was a work of fiction.

I'm currently reading about astro navigation, sextents etc. for course I'm doing.

Have you tried audiobooks? Listening to good writing being read well, I ofetn pause to admire the quality of the writing.

I listen to audiobooks on longer car journeys, and also when I was training for the 100km 24 hour walk a couple of years ago.

Have you read Longitude by Dave Sobel?

When it comes to fiction I am more of a classics person DH Lawrence, Joseph Conrad, Ernest Hemingway, etc..

No - by the looks of it, I will enjoy it.

@atticus - its less about the format, more about fiction. Though I often enjoy the Radio 4 plays.

I read sci-fi, thrillers, fantasy and horror. Oh, and I am being forced to read some of the classics for my degree.

I read all day long - long judgments detailing the misery of real life.

I make no apology for seeking pleasure in some better quality (and sometimes trashy) fiction. It helps me fall asleep.
