Interesting Reads 3rd October 2009

I’ve been using the Kindle App on the iPhone a lot this week. I used to read a lot of Sherlock Holmes stories in school, and found a free book on Kindle, which had a collection of Holmes short stories. I read the first one late Sunday, and have been reading almost one every night since then. They get over in about half an  hour or so, and though not as much fun, as they used to be, I still enjoy them. Much better than reading prospectuses and annual reports in any case.

Now, on to some interesting stuff I read this week, which doesn’t involve a murder or mystery.
