What book are you currently reading?

1. As The Crow Flies by Janet Street-Porter
2. One-Hit Wonderland by Tony Hawks
3. No Name by Wilkie Collins

How far in are you?

1. About a third in
2. About five chapters in.
3. More than halfway now.

What's it about?

1. Janet Street-Porter walking from Edinburgh to London in as straight a line as possible.
2. The man who hitchhiked round Ireland with a fridge takes on another bet - this time to have a hit single, anywhere in the world within two years.
3. Two Victorian orphans are disinherited by an unfortunate set of circumstances and the younger sets out to reclaim her father's money by whatever means she can.

Are you enjoying it?

1. It's better when she's not fawning over the various celebs she gets to wealk with her. She whinges a fair bit, but I can empathise with that, as I tend to do the same on hard walks!

2. Not as good as Round Ireland with a Fridge, but quite amusing so far.

3. The plot is rather slow and stately, but the characters are the main point of interest.
