Im reading I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe.
I have to say its a brillant book and Im completely hooked and its not my usual crime thriller either as its about a young country girl going to a top uni wheres shes completely out of her depth.
The best thing is I didnt have to pay a penny for it as I had a bursary on my uni card to spent in the uni bookshop before I graduate! :D And Ive got two other books as well.

Just finished The Blackest Streets - The Life and Death of a Victorian Slum - Sarah Wise.

I'm going to have to do some digging as I've got a strange feeling that one of my uncles lived in one of the blocks of flats that replaced them.
