    I highly recommend the Disney Institute's - 'Be Our Guest. Perfecting the art of customer service.' It is fascinating.

    I'm not a "chick-lit" person, but I love Marian Keyes books and I just read her latest paperback, This Charming Man, on my hols. It was brilliant. Made me laugh and made me cry

    Can't help unless you're interested in accounting. Most recent tomes have been on business valuation and trusts.

    ooooo Shadow of the Wind was an awesome book

    All the rest of mine are a bit geekie

    I feel honour bound to ask if you have read ' His Dark Materials' by Philip Pullman as I am rather too evangelical about those books :D

    Oh and if you are not averse to children's books - Mortal Engines by Phillip Reeve is very good.

    Shadow of the Wind.. is that the SPanish one by CarlosRuiz Zafon??

    I was going to suggest it but wasnt sure it had been published in English...

    I dont know if the translation is as good as the original... but still, the story is amazing, and you get caught up in it immediatly...

    I loved it!
