Human expression manifests itself in so many ways. The psychology of behaviour is a favourite of mine, especially the more extreme, criminal and religion, opposite means to the same ends.

Currently reading - "Zinn & The Art Of Mountain Bike Maintenance" by Lennard Zinn

...and reading the latest National Geographic!

Chris - How many novels are there in that series? I read somewhere that Master & Commander was the combination of 2?

Greg, dont quote me but 22 or so. The film was two books combined but of course film adaptations are always fairly 'flexible'!

Great reading, the bedrock of the books being the interaction between Aubrey the captain and Maturin the surgeon/spy punctuated with sea battles and intrigue.

Just done a tour of second hand bookshops in the north and came back with some absolute gems. Just starting on one of them 'London Diaries' by James Boswell.
