  1. The Rat

    The Rat Striker

    something non-fiction and amusing rather than something that is going to make me slit me wrists

    The Doc advised me to read more and it’s been canny, need to expand out of my cricket books though.
  2. Charmless Man

    Charmless Man Striker

    Subtle way for the doc to tell you you’re thick :lol:

    Agent Zigzag by Ben Macintyre. It's the story of a Burnopfield born, Sunderland raised WWII double agent and general scallywag.

    Not sure I'd say it was amusing but 'Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World' by Mark Kurlansky is a fascinating read.

    'surely you're joking mr feynman' ticks both the boxes, if you like science its a bonus...

    that's an excellent book, definitely fascinating but not funny hahah amusing... who knew one breed of fish would lead to so much.
