One book or rather movie that touched me was 'Under the Tuscan Sun' - I saw the movie, and liked the idea of fallingin love with a place and making it my home! i want to read the book - havent got my hands on it.

Another recent book i just finished 'Freedom at midnight' - gave me a glimpse of an India before my times, an India I would loved to travel back into.... Its a great read for people whio want to know about this country and what its been thru ....

I realy liked La Pierre's writing style.... Paris burning is next on my list.

I also like period novels of Georgette Heyer - while its a regular romance, i love the way she describes the clothes and the houses and everyting!!!!!!!!!!

Others on my list:
- Love in the time of cholera
- Time travellers wife

On Writing Well, By William Zinsser is a good book. It is an informal guide to writing nonfiction.

Just ordered Air Babylon on Amazon. Apparently tales from flight crew - sounds hilarious to be honest!!

Travel4u, I've never heard of that one. I read Steven King's On Writing, which is an excelent and entertaining read about how to write. I just read Teacher Man by Frank McCourt - one of the best books I've ever read. I never wanted it to end.

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles by Haruki Murakami (I think)

I found this book under the bed in a guest house in Chiang-Mai and it's my favourite book of all time. Very weird and wonderful...

If you liked that one, I suggest you check out the rest of the Murakami stuff. The novels are all fantastic, though I'm not so much into the short stories.

Around the world in a bad mood - Renee Foss - more stories from airline crew - very funny and some very good tips!

The World Is Flat, by Thomas Friedman

A bit lengthy, but fascinating, nonetheless

Can I go back to the Haruki Murakami suggestion and say that I've just finished reading Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World which was really good - you can really see what messrs Banks and Mitchell have been nicking some of their ideas from! (sorry - inspired by...)
