    This may be a stupid question but I'm getting a 45% bounce rate for one of my websites. Is that good or bad?

    Europe, sometimes.
    If they are all new visitors, 45% is not bad. If these people are subscribers/regulars, then 45% seems quite high. Depend how your site displays it's information also. Reduce the bounce rate by providing people the information they came to find on another, easy to find page.

    I would say that is a decent bounce rate... if you are looking to improve bounce rate, traffic from search engines typically has a much lower bounce rate then traffic from say social networking.
