Has everyone stopped reading? :mrgreen:

I've motored through all the Tony Parson's Max Wolfe series so far. An easy read and not bad at all.

Also all the James Oswald Inspector McLean series. Entertaining enough.

Now reading Kate Grenville Secret River Trilogy, I like these a lot.

And my side book is Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind. Good book but needs a little more concentration.

The last two I bought from WH Smith were 'How to stop time' by Matt Haig, and 'The marriage pact' by Michelle Richmond.
I went on instinct that they would be good reads and they were.

I love Linwood Barclay. havent read his stuff in a while though.I would recommend the promise Falls trilogy.takes place near where I grew up in western new york state.

Very good reading.


Oh I loved the Promise Falls books. He’s my fave author I think. Bar that last book.

I’ve just bought Kate Mosse’s latest, The Burning Chambers. I like her a lot too so I’m looking forward to starting it now I have more time.

There’s a half read book on my bedside that I should finish too. I was really enjoying it and can’t remember why I stopped reading. Now I know it’s gunna be a ballache picking it up again after so long.

I am not immortal.
Whatever I put off for later
May never be.
Whoever doesn’t know now
That I love them
May never know.
I have killed time.
I have squandered it.
I have lost days…weeks…
As a man of unlimited wealth
Might drop coins on the street
And never look back.
I know now, that there will be an end,
A limit.
But there is time
Valuable and precious time
To walk,
talk,
breathe.
Time to touch,
taste,
care.
To warm the child
Who is cold and lonely.
There is time to love
I promise myself…
I will.
I am
I am ready
I am ready to give
I am ready to give and to receive
I am ready to give and to receive love

Leonard Nimoy

isn't there a thread for quotes already?

had five wishes for years. how I know this My Son was 3 when the Hamster bit His finger and started crying. He remembers the Hamster to this day. at the time I was storing my books in a closet. the Hamster managed to make its way into the closet destrying a few books for bedding. the corner of Gay Hendricks book has evidence of the Hamster. for the past few months I have seen the book often, even picked it up off the floor to return to My library after Daughter was playing with the books. I plucked it again from My library just to read the summery. I ended up reading the first chapter. I feel I could have finished the book in less than two hours, I decided one chapter and the next I can take notes. His surmisation of His death bed regret is how I have focused My attention for over 15 years though not as concisely as Mr Hendrics. I have a strong feeling I will learn alot from this book.

I'm on the last chapter of The Good Samaritan. Brilliant idea for a book and very well written but relentlessly desolate. Couldn't stop reading though.

I am going to read the Mystery Man series by Colin Bateman, I read the first one years ago and never got round to reading the rest. It was very funny from what I remember, totally ridiculous.

presently reading a Robert Crais novel--a modern style of the classic LA detective genre.
