I returned the 2 and a half Pillars of Wisdom unfinished as I found the protagonist difficult to get on with. I saw a couple of other Alexander McCall Smith's but neither featured Precious, so I decided to try them another time, after being rather repelled by the 2 and a half Pillars of Wisdom. I quite enjoyed the Girl Who Married a Lion, but I saw too many other books I wanted to give a go to try any more non-Precious Smiths. :)

I brought back Amsterdam and Atonement by Ian McEwan, The TimeTraveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger and The Island of the Day Before and Baudolino by Umberto Eco. I still have the Philippa Gregory to read, and I've been given some more encouragement to read Cloud Atlas. I must try again!
