Very, very well done.

Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow by Peter Hoeg,
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden and
The Invention of Clouds: How an Amateur Meteorologist Forged the Language of the Skies by Richard Hamblyn

I've had a short attention span for reading and have been flicking between the books. Too much computer stuff at work and too short a lunch break causing much tiredness and an inability to bother to do anything once one arrives home from work...

oh... and I'm still going on my El Nino book too... can't remember who it's by though. it's a little... technically written and it's a bit hard to sit down with and sink your teeth into.

One day, when he was naughty. Mr Bunnsy looked over the hedge into Farmer Fred's field and it was full of fresh green lettuces. Mr Bunnsy, however, was not full of lettuces. This did not seem fair.

Guns Germs and Steel was written by Jared Diamond and it is indeed a good read.

I'm no reading "How the Mind Works" by Steven Pinker on the topic of the development and workings of the cognitive mind.
