Reading Inside the mind of a murderess its a book about Myra Hindley she really was an evil bitch I have read a couple of books about her and each page makes me hate her more glad that bitch is no longer living. I have read it before but that was years ago
I'm currently rereading John Grisham's The Street Lawyer. The plot concerns a young hotshot lawyer in Washington, DC who, after a tragic incident, decides to become an advocate for the homeless -- and uncovers some really shady business about his old firm. Though written in the late '90s, I'd say this book has held up quite well; a lot of the commentary here about homelessness in America feels as (unfortunately) relevant as ever.

There have been some great books about pop music published this year. Viv Albertine's "Clothes, Music, Boys" is fantastically candid and an amazing snapshot of a fascinating life; if you like Nick Drake the new 'official' book about him is absolutely gorgeous; Steve Hanley's "The Big Midweek" - about being in The Fall - is really funny and a great read even if you know nowt about The Fall; and Dave Stubbs' book about krautrock is a thing of no small wonder.
