James Patterson's The mid wife murders.

Reading a lot helps me keep my mind off the horrors that are going on right now.

Yeah, Im finding that audio books are really helping me escape lately.

Im still working my way through a super long book on the Grateful Dead. And Star Wars audio books are fun because they have all the sound effects, music and alien voices.

The God Delusion

Worst book I have ever read in my entire life. I barely got through it (skim read the last few pages). Pretentious, arrogant, biased drivel. 

Biased? Oh the irony. :lol:

Killing for Company: The Case of Dennis Nilsen (1985) by Brian Masters.

What the new three-part ITV drama, Des starring David Tennant, is based on * - Brian Masters is indeed a prominent character in the drama. 1983-5, Masters wrote this biography through multiple interviews, even receiving manuscripts from the serial killer. It is biographic, psycho-analytical, poetic-romantic and horrendously disturbing in equal measure. 

* Indeed, recently reissued in accordance.
