The book I am reading: Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. I recently enjoyed The Diamond Age but am not getting on quite so well with this.
The book I love most: I'll pick from the books I actually read over and over, rather than something worthy. I like superficially light humour with hidden spikes and the authors I re-read most are Terry Pratchett, P G Wodehouse, Nancy Mitford and Barbara Pym. If I'm picking one book, I'll make it Excellent Women by Barbara Pym.
The last book I received as a gift: a lovely six volume Folio Society edition of Proust which my mother gave me yesterday. I'm confident I will start reading it at some point, but have no idea how far through I will get.
The last book I gave as a gift: Botany for the Artist by Sarah Simblet. This is very beautiful and I predict I will buy more copies, including one for myself. I met the author and saw the original drawings last summer and they are fabulous.
The nearest book: Volcanoes by Peter Francis. My study is full of chemistry and geology books.
