Books and more books.


Good afternoon, like everybody else I seem to be having bother with my entry today so I hope second time lucky.  I thought I was up and running again but after what happened i am not so sure but still Ill try again.
Have been reading all my alerts and have been enjoying your journals. Been to visit Specimen Days and he was talking about books which made me think I could maybe write something about them too. At Christmas my Stuart gave me a lovely little notebook called Reading Notes. Its super it is all printed up ready for you to do your entries.  I keep books I have read entered at the back and books I fancy at the front it makes life easy as with some authors the covers of their books are similar. So without more ado here's what I have read so far this year.

       Want to Play ....................P.J. Tracy.
       The Twelth Card.............Jeffrey Deavers.
        Lawless...........................Alexander McGregor.
        False Inpressions..............Jeffrey Archer
        Mary Mary .............         James Paterson. 
        Two Women...............             Martina Cole.

A mixed bag try to keep reading new authors. What have you all been reading?
It has been a lovely spring day here bright sunshine but cold which is about right for early March. Thats about it for me for today hope you find something on the telly tonight if thats your thing or a good book if it thats what takes your fancy.   Love

Hello Joan,

There`s sometimes nothing better than to curl up with a good book and lose yourself in it`s pages. I`ve just finished one and have started another which is really funnyand real page turner, just what I need after a miserable wet winter.  Have a lovely weekend. :o)

Love Sandra xxxx

Hi Joan what a good idea even though I am not an avid reader.I do read from time to time.The last one I read was Shane Richie's "From Rags To Riches" ALFIE out of East Enders as I like autobiographies.I realy enjoyed it.And aslo Martin Kemps Autobiography .I enjoyed them both.Your little diddy book sounds great,and if you can carry it around with you.You will not make the mistake of reading the same book twice will you now?I did have Martina Coles Broken bought for me just before christmas, but it had too many swear words in for me, so I took it to the charity shop LOL.Shhhhhh don't tell the person who bought me it will you LOL!!! I Havn't even looked to see whats on TV tonight as lets face it theres not much on anyway at the best of times that you could do a song and dance about is there. LOL!! Take Care Have A great Weekend Hope Stuart feels a little better.God Bless

I aqm an avid reader owning well over a 1000 books life, at the moment reading one of my fave authors Sara Paresky just read the 5th horseman=james paterson,
perhaps we should do a book exchange or at least do reccomendations what do you think?

I am not a quick reader so haven't read much this year.  My fave author is Stephen King but I'm currenntly reading a book of his called The Dark Half and I'm not entirely impressed but I'm not giving up and shall hope it'll have a super ending ;-)

I haven't fancied reading at all for weeks, most unlike me :o(
Maybe I should choose an old favourite, to get back into the swing of things :o)

Hi .. have read lots of Michael Morpurgo with the kids!  Just read The Final Solution by Michael Chabon which was wonderfully intriguing and full of interesting use of language and scenario. Would like to find more novels like this.  Read Sharon Owens about the Tavern on Maple Street - torture.
