THE LAST KINGDOM, the first book in the Uhtred (son of Uhtred!) of Bebbanburg series that inspired the BBC/Netflix show of the same name. I very much enjoyed the show, and the book is really good so far.

Now reading THE GOD DELUSION (2006) by Richard Dawkins.

This is my first sampling of Dawkins' work. I'm only about sixty pages in and I am enjoying it a lot so far.

Long time since I read that -- I remember enjoying particularly the bit about various morality problems (I recall one where you have the option of sacrificing a lone fat man to save the lives of a bunch of people on a train; maybe I don't recall it fully!) and also about questions posed to children about certain actions when it is worded neutrally or when it is worded along the lines of their religion and how the answers came back differently (e.g. Joshua committing genocide in the Old Testament).

A bit trivial but I just finished The Beatles Tune In Vol. 1 by Mark Lewisohn. Over 800 pages of the best rock and roll story there has been (in my opinion, 4x Elvis' rags to riches story). That other John Byrne figures fairly often (Johnny 'Guitar' of Rory Storm & The Hurricanes, there are some photos of him with Ringo naturally too).
