      I have been reading recently English-Russian and Russian-English dictionaries.They’re very interesting books? You can learn many new things and enlarge your knowledge. So I advise you to read them in yr free time!

      Seriously my second favorite book is by Dougie Brimson “Eurotrashed. The Rise and Rise of Europe’s football hooligans”. I knew much about the truth of tragedy because before everything I had read blamed only Liverpool fans as the main guilty and cruel people. I hope it will never be repeated. For many people a fan = a hooligan. That negative attitude to football fans is everywhere. What to do to change that negative image of fans (drunk and aggressive people)?
       I like reading very much. So I ruined my eyesight. I have read a lot of books about football, players, about History. I loved “The shaping of England” by Isaac Asimov. “The Xenophobe’s Guide to the English” Antony Miall & David Milsted. “Mind power in the 21st century” by John Kehoe. Etc…
      It takes a lot of time to remember about all good books I have read in my life!

      I've just started The World According to Garp by John Irving.  Got through the first two chapters queuing for the Cardiff tickets at Anfield.  I never noticed the cold or the rain so it's definitely got my attention.

      Before this I read The Long Firm & He Kills Coppers by Jake Arnott.  I love his style of writing with three different characters telling their tales and how they interreact without actually meeting.

      Does this sound a bit pretentious? ???

      I love my autobiographies - especially past LFC players.

      I have just finished Alan Kennedy's book.  
      Kennedy's Way - Inside Bob Paisley's Liverpool.

      I must admit, it's different to how other books are written, but it gives a great in depth read into his rise in football.
      Talks a lot about Sir Bob and the 'liverpool secret' in the 80's.

      Would reccomend, but please be aware - it's not an autobiography as such.

      Next to be read, are :-
      The Saint - Ian St John
      Oh Joey, Joey - Joey Jones
      Farewell But Not Goodbye - Bobby Robson (bless him, best wishes to you Bobby)

      Just finished 'Into The Wild' which will shortly be coming out in the UK as a film directed by Sean Penn. A fantastic film and book based on a true story of a a guy in his early twenties from a well to do family who gave everything up to try and find himself in the Alaskan wilderness. The book is a quick easy read and is a cheap book to purchase....REALLY reccommend it to any young guys out there (late teen and early twenties) and read it before the film comes out. It will change you or at least give reason behind many of your actions.....5 stars.

      I'm currently reading The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and it's really good.  I meant to go to the cinema when it came out but I'm glad I didn't now as I think you can appreciate a story more in written form rather than having some hot shot hollywood studio ruin the story and miss out key points (Harry Potter is a good example of this)

      The book is about religious conspiracy surrounding the discovery and indeed true form of the Holy Grail and is VERY addictive to the avid book fan and keeps you turning the next page for a good 1-2 hours a time with the twists and turns faced by the main characters it is extremely well written and definitely worth a read. 

      I'll rate it when I have finished the entire book but so far 279 pages in it's utterly compelling.

      Ok i can say that the best two books i have ever read, coincidently the ONLY two books i've ever read, are Carra's book and Dynasty: Fifty Years of Shankly's Liverpool. Bought them together off Amazon and WOW.

      I couldnt have asked for a better read from both books. Two legends of our club today.

      I'm not really one for (auto)biographies.

      Currently reading book 3 in the Emperor series by Conn Iggulden.  Also waiting for book 3 in the Conqueror series by the same author.  Well worth a read for anyone who's into that sort of thing.

      Got 'The Rule of Four' by Ian Caldwell & Dustin Thomason waiting for me to finish these.
