What I have been reading lately:
As you can see, its been a Anthony Bourdain month.  To be honest, the more I read him, the less I like.  I'd say this is the last of Bourdain that will grace my reading list.

As for Peter Nichols, 'A Voyage for Madmen' this is a top read, and well worth picking up.  I couldn't put it down.  Amazing stuff.

Similarly, Robert Hughes' 'The Fatal Shore' should be mandatory reading in all Australian schools, and a valuable read for anyone who is even mildly interested in the formation of the Australian nation.  Hughes is ever eloquent and tells of the early days of convict settlement in Australia.
I really valued this book, and found it very insightful into the Australian psyche today.
