Lucky Man, Artemis Fowl, Riotous Robots, and Troublesome Words

Yep, it’s books catchup time again. Since I last mentioned books, I finished the Michael J. Fox autobiography: Lucky Man which I really enjoyed. It was quite moving in parts, but without being too sentimental. Recommended. Since then I have read a couple of Jamie‘s books: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer; Very, very, good. Great characters. Some really nice touches of humour. Recommended. I can’t wait to read the next one in the series; and Riotous Robots by Mike Goldsmith (edited by Clive Goddard) part of “The Knowledge” series. This was pretty good, informative without being too technical. Quite well balanced too, no bias at all. A good book.
Finally, I’m now reading Troublesome Words by Bill Bryson which is remarkably good for what is essentially a short dictionary.
