I also read Last Man Standing by Christy O'Connor on the flight home from Stockholm last week. 'Twas good. It's about hurling goalkeepers over the 2004 Championship - our own Dónal óg features heavily.
Excellent sports book. Reading 'To Kill A Mockingbird' again with my class. I know it's a cliché but a classic - the last 8-10 pages are genuinely moving. Reading 'Dubliners' with the older lads is great. I can't remember ever reading a better short story than 'A Painful Case'.

In typical fashion, I've started a second book while readin one. I picked up a copy of Thompson's Happy Birthday Jack Nicholson. It's one of the cheap 50 page Penguin jobs released for their 70th birthday. It's such a pity we won't get any new writing from him. Admittedly, I don't often agree with him, but he manages to write with such humour that I enjoy reading it anyway.

Reading Grave Secrets by Kathy Reichs, getting into her stuff lately. The new show "Bones" on Sky One is based on the protagonist of her books.
