  1. Ten Days in a Mad-House by Nellie Bly

    10 days has been on my 'to read' list forever. I will have to add 72 days, I was not aware of that one.
  2. I have read 24 so far, aiming for 50. Best books so far of the year: Y: The Last Man - Brian K Vaughn A book that has been on my list of books to read since about 2003-2004, I waited until i was able to buy all 5 volumes in hardback and I am glad I waited. Probably the best written comic I have ever come across it. This is probably my favorite thing I have read all year. 5/5 How to get away with murder in America - Evan Wright A fairly short but never the less disturbing read, from the same author as 'Generation Kill' which I read last year. This book tells the tale of organised crime, murder and the CIA in the 80's and 90's 4/5 The Whistleblower: Sex Trafficking, Military Contractors and One Woman's Fight for Justice - Kathryn Bolkovac Eye opening story from inside the world of the UN and its private security contractor and the kind of things that people get up to when they are dumped in war torn places and are above the law. 4/5 books that were a bit me Executioner Pierrepoint - Albert Pierrepoint An autobiography of a historically very interesting man, who came from a line of executioners. This book was equal parts interesting and tedious. Albert is clearly from a time where men did not express their feelings and really struggles to talk about his work at times. 3/5 Star Man - The right hand of rock'n'roll - Michael Francis Another autobiography, this is the life story of a man who spent his adult life protecting the likes of Cher, Bon Jovi and Michael Jackson. he has a lot of wild stories but the book trundles on just a little too long and becomes, much like I imagine touring does becomes tedious. 3/5 clunkers: Kicking the Habit - Jason Marriner yet another autobiography, this one is of a man who was one of England's most notorious football hooligans. Shows no regret or shame in his past actions, comes across as a horrible man. and proud of it. all in all the good has far outweighed the bad
  3. It still is up as far as I am aware? Just it usually is empty
