  1. Read-a-thon 2020

    Thanks Gaia, you too! Fablehaven is such a lovely name for a book, I'm going to look it up now Is it good?? I've only heard of it but it sounds very intense! Oh no! On the hottest possible day too! I hope you can get a new one delivered quickly! It's good that you still managed to get a couple of hours of reading in, hopefully that was a bit relaxing after your dramatic morning. I read most of The House Without Windows today, I think I have about 50 pages left so I should finish that tomorrow. Or possibly tonight if it's too hot to sleep anyway!

(I know we're getting an error message when you paste a link at the moment but they do actually seem to be working regardless!)
  3. This Monday we're going to be talking to Kirk Slater about his new book, The Girl Who Wasn't There, a Victorian ghost story. Kirk is a graphic designer who previously launched some very successful Kickstarter projects for custom playing cards. Now he's using that platform to publish his novella, which was inspired by a stage production of The Woman in Black. He'll be telling us a bit more about the book and also his decision to publish in this less traditional way. It's been really interesting talking to him and I think you'll all find this this one interesting too!
  4. I don't feel like I want to read them as urgently as I always want to read the novels either, for the same reason. Which is lucky because I have no idea where I put the charger for my kindle...
  5. Kindle and ebooks deals

    The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden is 99p on kindle
  6. Oooh I need to charge my kindle! Have you read any yet?
  7. Well we are in the joke corner Speaking of which, I saw a book one today that made me laugh... Why are books afraid of their sequels?
  8. Thanks for the warning! I won’t read this if I need to relax! Are you still enjoying it though?
  9. Oooh I saw them! I can only see them if I stare at one of the vertical black lines. To be fair, I think it would have been quite funny if you'd just made us all stare at the box for ages and there weren't ever any circles
  10. I can’t see any! This isn’t a trick is it?
  11. I decided to pick up Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski, really got into it and finished it in two days. Thinking of going for a classic next. Possibly Agnes Grey.
  12. Kindle and ebooks deals

    Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell is 99p on kindle at the moment.
  13. Beet Salad Recipe

    Oh! If you google root greens it gives you everything from sweet potato to radish! I probably should have worked out you meant the green of the root in the recipe, I thought root greens might be an American term for something! Thanks, I hope you have a good day too

    This sounds good! I know this probably sounds like a stupid question but what are root greens? I tried google but it didn’t help! (the edit button is at the bottom of your post, next to ‘quote’ and ‘options’, but you might not have enough posts to edit yet).
  15. Yeah I liked that part! I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for! Something fairly quick to read again I think, but not short stories. I’m thinking maybe Bone China by Laura Purcell or The House Without Windows by Barbara Newhall Follett. Possibly The Fourteenth Letter by Claire Evans. Or A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie. I should probably stop hoarding books and then it would be easier to choose...
