  1. Kindle and ebooks deals

    Trustee from the Toolroom (Vintage Classics) Kindle Edition by Nevil Shute for 99p today.
  2. Re-reading Lissa Evans’ Crooked Heart. First read in February 2018, but it’s scary how much you forget the plot already! But it’s good to read again.
  3. The tropics

    Isabella Allende’s Islands Beneath The Sea (set in Haiti). I really enjoyed reading this.
  4. Read-a-thons 2021

    A longer weekend for read-a-thon would be good 🙂. I have read very little in the last week, just watching Iceland volcano for hours on end......
  5. Which online bookstores do you use?

    Seems to be good, so that’s another online book shop to look at.
  6. Which online bookstores do you use?

    When I want tree-books I use Wordery, Hive or Book Depository.
  7. I think you well love this one, as it is really good. And Indigo is wonderful . She's a great character.
  8. Finished What Abigail Did That Summer this evening. Great read, and I'm really glad that Aaronovitch is still producing cracking stories!
  9. I would like see more of DCI Seawoll. Especially as he hates the magic stuff.
  10. Read 25% of What Abigail Did That Summer so far. It did took a while to get into Abigail, as the narrator, but it’s a good book. And I love Indigo ❤️😀.
  11. Just seen and heard the What Abigail Did That Summer trailer on Aaronovitch’s YouTube......brilliant!
  12. Yay, Ben Aaronovitch’s What Abigail Did That Summer: A Rivers Of London Novella Kindle Edition arrived this morning! Also, reading Lissa Evans’ Their Finest Hour. I loved the Crooked Heart/Old Baggage/V for Victoriy trilogy. I’m now looking forward to a Zoom E-evening with Lissa Evans soon. So lots of books to read now .

    Lovely Zentangle poppy 🙂. Strangely, I find Zentangle difficult and not that relaxing. I just seem to make then messy and not attractive to the eye. But I really enjoy them when I do mono-tangles. The excitement of sowing the Tomato ‘Gardener’s Delight’ seeds this week. This always makes me feel good doing this, the thought of spring really starting. We grow in a greenhouse, and we had a real bumper crop last year, so I made purée/passata with the glut.
  14. Finished Artemis Fowl and Lost Colony by Eoin Colfer. Started this book in October 2020, then didn’t get into it recently, but loved it in the end. 5 out of 5.
  15. Your Hobbies, Collections, and Obsessions

    Lovely Daschsunds!
