  1. Karen.d's Reading List 2020

    I read the Couple Next Door last year and didn't think much of it either. I figured it out early on and only kept reading because I thought there must be some really good twist coming, but there wasn't.
  2. Your Book Activity - November 2019

    Just finished The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter. One of the best books I've read this year. I couldn't put it down.
  3. Your Book Activity - November 2019

    The Steve Richard's book sounds interesting Willoyd. I have an interest in political history so I'll have to see if my library has this.
  4. Your Book Activity - November 2019

    I finished Wildfire by Ann Cleeves, the last book in the Shetland series. Have now started Sidetracked, an other of the Wallendar series by Henning Mankell.
  5. Where do you read?

    I mostly read in bed, and sometimes at my computer table on my days off.
  6. Madeleine's Book Log - ongoing

    I have this in my library pile. I almost don't want to read it because I don't want the series to end.
  7. Your Book Activity - October 2019

    Finished The Polish Detective by Hania Allen. Really enjoyed this, although the ending was a little bit weak.
  8. Willoyd's Reading 2019

    I bought Stasiland recently. I've read a few books set in this era and I'm really looking forward to this one. More so after your review.
  9. Madeleine's Book Log - ongoing

    I love the Brunetti series too Madeleine, although I'm only up to book 3.
  10. Your Book Activity - September 2019

    Currently reading And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. His books are amazing. It makes me want to reread A Thousand Splendid Suns and The Kiterunner again.
  11. Your Book Activity - September 2019

    Finished The Marco Effect by Jussi Adler-Olsen. Just about finished The Scent of Death by Simon Beckett.
  12. Your Book Activity - September 2019

    I finished Fatherland by Robert Harris today. Love his books. I'll probably start the Marco Effect by Jussi Adler-Olsen tonight. I'm also reading From the Cradle to the Grave: a biography of Michael Joseph Savage for some research I'm doing.
  13. Mona's Around The World Challenge

    I read the Kite Runner a few years ago and it has stayed with me since. It's such a good book. I've also read A Thousand Splendid Suns and that was just as good.
  14. Introverts & Extraverts

    I think I've got more introverted as I've got older. When I was younger I would be with groups of people a lot more, and not seem to mind. I didn't mind being alone, but didn't crave it as much as I do now. Now I find I really need to be alone a lot more, and really don't like being with large groups very much.
  15. Introverts & Extraverts

    That sort of workplace would drive me nuts Madeleine. I used to work in an open plan office, but only about 10-15 people max, but it was still sometimes too much interaction for me.
