One book, two book, three book, four and five

Saw this meme on Random Jottings of A Book and Opera Lover, (and see right)so am following suit.

1.The book I'm reading now: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Although originally published in 1932, after watching a Tv ad (on French TV for a programme called I want to be a porn star), I think that Brave New World is almost becoming reality.

2.The book I've just read: A Week in December by Sebastian Faulks. Some of the financial wheeling and dealing left me a bit behind, but the story and characters kept me turning the pages, and the ending is superb.

3.The next book I'm going to read: Hector and the Secrets of Love by Francois Lelord. Must read something French (although the book I'm going to read is an English translation) as I'm in France at the moment.

4. The last book I bought: Trespass by Rose Tremain. A book with a French setting, about complicated family relationships, together with incest, murder - a thrill of a read, with an amazing twist at the end.

5. The last book I was given: Romantic Moderns:English Writers, Artists and the Imagination from Virginia Woolf to John Piper, by Alexandra Harris. I'm not given books very often, but this was a real treat. Not only a very interesting read, but a rather nice production as well.
