Geek & Critical - Cold Comfort Farm? Great movie. I've never read the book. Hmmm...must think about it.
About to start The Death of Achilles by Boris Akunin. It's one of a series of Russian detective books with the compelling Erast Fandorin as the sleuth-star (have to wait for them to be translated from the Russian). I'm not a huge fan of detective/mystery stories, but I really like Akunin's work.
