Scents of Direction

This is what I think...

I've been doing plenty of reading so far this year, I normally go in spells of reading a couple of books quite quickly and then having a long break.
I think I'm reading more because I'm away with work more often than I used to be, normally a night or two each week. There isn't much else to do in a hotel (especially the ones I normally stay in) so I've been having the opportunity to read quite frequently.

The other thing that helps is that I'm pretty much only reading ebooks at the moment, I find them much more convenient than real books as I can take a few with me wherever I go and it's much more discreet; you can read in the office (you know, during a scheduled break...) without attracting any attention.

I should get myself a "currently reading" side bar, I'll do that soon. Lately I have been reading a few books by Dan Brown, specifically:

Digital Fortress - It was alright, not great but quite enjoyable.
The Da Vinci Code - Really enjoyed this one, compelling but not too "heavy"
Angels & Demons - Far-fetched and a bit silly, but still quite exciting and an easy read.

Next is a change of pace, I've got Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky a book I have wanted to read for a long time. I have always been put off by the length of it and the fact that I really don't have a great attention span...
