  2. Another mood reader here, and one book at a time - I've countless unread books on my shelves, but very often I'll browse them and not feel inspired, so will revert to the library or worse, have to make another purchase

    Hello Chrissy - yes thank you! Just relocated some of my bookshelves and thought of how I hadn't visited the forum for a while - will try to be a more regular visitor! Hope all is well with you?

  5. Jackson Brodie

    Currently reading Case Histories - enjoying the style, the humour and the plot - full marks so far. Also I watched the BBC series long enough ago, for it not to cloud my image of Jackson too much.
  6. I watched the TV series 'back in the day' and have relatively recently started reading the books - have just finished the Spend Game. I can't helpful visualising Ian McShane as Lovejoy, albeit as a much rougher version than the TV version. Doling out a black eye to a lady isn't exactly the way to appeal to the modern reader, but that aside, I enjoy the books and will keep going through the list.
  7. Happy Birthday! Have a lovely day.
