  1. Finished Still Me by Jojo Moyes (loved it) and now starting The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris.
  2. What's Up in January 2018

    Yep, fed up with this weather too, not helped by having a dog that loves muddy puddles and the ponds!! Thankfully we have booked to meet Steve in Dubai for half term with the kids so looking forward to a bit of sunshine! ☀️
  3. Round Robin Year-long Challenge

    Thanks @Ben, my second Steinbeck nomination, good job one of my resolutions is to read more classics this year. Very pleased to see yourself and maybe @frankie will be reading Human Traces, still one of the best books I have ever read!
  4. The Last Film You Saw - 2018

    Watched the second Kingsman film, The Golden Circle, not a patch on the first film and goodness knows what they were thinking putting Elton John in it!
  5. Round Robin Year-long Challenge

    Thanks @Ben for your challenge to read 11.22.63. I’ve been putting this off for too long due to its size, but no more! My Dad will be pleased too as he is a big King fan and had always been a little disappointed that I’ve only read one of his books. (Under the Dome).
  6. Janet's Log - Stardate 2017

    I haven’t read your review too closely as I bought the book yesterday, at Windsor Waterstones, but it is good to see you enjoyed it, hopefully I’ll get to it soon!
  7. What's Up in January 2018

    I hope everyone is having a week, it’s cold and dreary here but the daffodils are poking through so that gives me a glimmer of hope that Spring isn’t too far away! Obviously we have been pretty sad over the loss of our old dog but we are coming out the other side now and thinking of all the good times we had with him, of which there were plenty! I had had a nice catch up with my best friend in Windsor today with a nice lunch in Bills and of course the obligatory trip to Waterstones. I did buy three new books, not because I needed them but because they make me feel happy!
  8. Did you not do Guildford? I thought I remembered you saying you had been there?
  9. You’ll need to create your own Waterstones thread with all the piccies and reviews in it!! Have you been to the Kingston one in the Bentalls Centre? It’s not a nice building but the shop itself is large and well stocked.
  10. Round Robin Year-long Challenge

    Hi Ben, welcome to the party! I would like to challenge you to read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, one of my favourites of the last couple of years.
  11. Hi Janet, the Amsterdam one is ok but not amazing and please don’t get excited about the Woking one! If you come to the Camberley one let me know and I’ll take you for coffee! Likewise the Windsor or Guildford ones, neither are too far from me. Woking is pretty close too but I don’t go there out of choice! Oh, and I think Bracknell may have one in their new shopping centre too!
  12. Round Robin Year-long Challenge

    Maybe stop it at 10 people? It’s not too bad for me as I’m not expecting to read many of the books I have challenged others to read, in fact I have read a fair few already, but it will be harder for those of you that are reading both.
  13. Starting to read

    Why don’t you try another John Green book? Paper Towns was a very good read.
  14. Round Robin Year-long Challenge

    Thank you, frankie...I’ve been putting off the Steinbecks, I think I’m wary that none of them can match up to Of Mice and Men, it’s now time to find out!

    A really sad start to 2018 for my little family; we lost our old dog, Obi, today, aged 14 years and 2 months. He was a truly special boy, he didn't like many people but those he did like, he LOVED! He was hard work at times which meant we had to work hard with him, this only increased our bond further. He was loyal to the end and was still following me up and down stairs out of sheer determination and love this morning. He will be so so missed.
