Like my books and mainly read thrillers or crime fiction. Big fan of Lee Child.

Bought a Kindle Fire from a mate who brought it back from States as only cost me £80 and selling for £130 on eBay. I digress :-) Never thought I would like e books.

Downloaded the Hunger Games Trilogy and enjoying this at the minute.

What you guys read? Any alternatives to Lee Child for me to get in to? Traditional book or e-book?

I am more of a non ficition kind of person. Enjoy the biogs and such like. I think I may just about be one of the few that read books the traditional way, no e-readers and such like. I got my wife a KOBO but I can't be arsed with the thing myself.

Currently reading "The Cyprus Consipircy" - Interesting take on the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. Basically how for strategic reasons the US and Britian wanted the Island to be divided.

kk sounds interesting book as I lived in Cyprus for a while, so always like to read this situation too.

Used to just get books fae library and don't think paying for books will be long term for me either.

Paperbacks. The Kindle looks sweet though.

Just read sequel to "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" by Steig Larsson, called "The Girl Who Played With Fire". Brilliant it is and can't wait to get my hands on the third book of the trilogy, "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest".

Just started the Dan Brown novel, "The Lost Symbol".
