    Just finished Tom Allan's "Scotland's Last Viking", a fictional version of the life of Swein Asleifsson. Told in dialect, it reads like a cross between The Orkneyinga Saga and Irvine Welsh. Not bad at all.

    Just started a biography, "Enver Hoxha - The Iron Fist of Albania", which looks to be a lot less entertaining.

    I have started to revisit books by the late humorous author Tom Sharpe (some of who's work was adapted for film and teleision in the 1980s).

    I find the books to be hilarious light reading (ideal for my long bus journey to and from work). I borrow them from the local library. Sadly many of their stock of his work is in paperback form and copies have been withdrawn and not replaced (I would imagine that they would spend their budget on more recent authors). But recently, I have enjoyed the following:

    Vintage Stuff:

    The Midden:

    Hopefully I will enjoy some more of his work while the library still has copies.
