If you can spare a bit more time find yourself a copy of 'A Theory of Relativity' by Jacquelyn Mitchard. No, it's not about physics - why on earth would I, who barely struggled through the subject at school, recommend a book about physics?! This novel has has given me completely fresh eyes about the way I view family. I am pretty sure I only put it down to eat dinner (I didn't show the same courtesy for breakfast!). Be prepared to cry. Be prepared to not want to put it down until you are done - you will have to know how it ends.
That's what I've been watching and reading lately!
