  12. Hi, that was actually my first Irving, I have a few more on the shelf to read though. I do have to say that he is now one of my favorite authors.

  13. Enjoyed reading your comment on Hans Fallada and have decided that having read your review I must finally start reading John Irvine and with that in mind will order a widow for one year...can you recommend any other john irvine books?

  14. I've got Dumfries Half Marathon this Sunday, then a well earned week off. It's been a busy Summer with the running club. I bought some great Running books but have only got round to reading one of them so far.

  15. How's the running goig Ernie....I just ran The Chippenham Half Marathon this weekend with a rather sore achilles...so I am going to have to rest up for the next weeks and look to running a race in the new year...
