As well as enjoying I, Claudius and the first episodes of Torchwood, I did read a few books.

My own all-time favourite of my reviews was my write-up of The Syſtem of the World, by Neal Stephenſon.
The best book of the month was Ismail Kadarë's Albanian tale The File on H, which you can get here (I enjoyed it a lot more than the most recent book I read by the same author). And the first Chronicles of Amber remain a guilty pleasure; you can get them in a single volume here. I thought The Lovely Bones was an awful book, but you can get it here if you want.
