About meI am married with two grown up boys. I work full time but find time to read evey day. My favourite place to read is in the bath !. I also belong to a reading group and have been going about 10 years. Other interests are walking and photography.

About my libraryI have a huge pile of books to read, and it's always growing.

Hi Tina,

Thanks for the tip about R J Ellory (only just seen your message, otherwise I would have responded earlier). I haven't read any of his books, but my Mom has and enjoyed it very much.

I might see if I can get to that one!

Thanks again,

Happy reading,

Hi Tina

Really enjoying the new Mark Billingham...up until 1 am this morning as I couldn't put it down! I agree David Morrissey ain't sexy enough to be Tom Thorne!!

I hope your ankle is better soon. Ouch.....that must hurt!

Best wishes

Hi Tina,

I wish I had gone to see Mark Billingham, but I just couldn't make it. I bet he was very entertaining - he does (or used to anyway) stand up comedy as well, so I'm sure he knows how to please a crowd. Glad you had such a good time.

In the end, I didn't get to see Catherine O'Flynn either!! A friend of mine went and she said that it was a good evening, but not as good as when we went to see Jo Carnegie at Kingswinford Library (that was a really entertaining evening; Jo Carnegie was so funny and witty and very friendly when I went to have my book signed. She had time for a quick chat with everyone she signed for).

I really would like to get to see some more authors though, so am keeping my eyes peeled for anything, and will let you know if I hear of anything locally:)

Happy reading!

Hi Tina - thanks for the info. I really like Mark Billingham, but not sure if I can make it. Will try and see if I can though and if I can, I'll phone the venue tomorrow or Friday.

Thanks again!

Happy Reading,
Btw, I hope you enjoy Titanic. I love the theatre!
Hi Tina - yes, I meant to leave you a message yesterday, saying that I did not enjoy Dracula as much as I had hoped. I wouldn't want to put anyone else off though - after all most of the reviews on here and Amazon are very favourable. Maybe I wasn't into the right frame of mind of it or something.

I'll be at the Catherine O'Flynn evening. Emily, who works at Kingswinford Library told us about it at the last reading group session, and a couple of us from the group are going. I know that the author used to work at the Merry Hill Centre, and the shopping centre where her first book is set was based on Merry Hill!

Happy reading!

Hi Tina,

Believe it or not, I have never seen any of the old Hammer films about Dracula!! In a way, that's good, because although I know the basic story, it has not really influenced my reading. I found the book hard to get into at first, but I am enjoying it now. I'll be posting a review when I've finished it, but I'm not sure yet what I really think of it (if that makes sense)! I think it would make a good Halloween read though - I always like to read something appropriate for the time of year at Halloween and Christmas.

Hi Tina 15 year old cat was obviously behaving himself that day! He is getting old now and is even more cuddly lately. Bless his heart. I think I am reading Anita Shreve there.

Thank you for adding me to your list of interesting libraries. I consider it a great honour.

Take care and have a good weekend.

Also, thanks for your kind comments about my reviews. I must say, I've just been reading some of yours and thoroughly enjoying them! Will be adding a number of books to my wishlist later on!

Enjoy your reading,
Hi Tina - thanks for adding me. I've added you too...I enjoyed looking at what you read last year, and am going to have to look out for some of them!

Yes, I do go to Kingswinford Library. They've started a new reading group once a month on a Thursday evening, which suits me because I can go straight after work. We've only had two meets so far, but I think it will be a good group when it really gets going.
Thanks Tina. I saw the TV Book Club last night too. I really enjoyed "The Bed I Made"...the only thing which prevented me from giving it 5 stars was the fact I found out just a bit too much about the Isle of Wight! Some of the descriptions of places and sites went on a a travelogue.

We do share quite a number of books and I see you are reading one of my favourites...R J Ellory. I enjoy his writing and have just about all his books.

Do you enjoy Librarything? I get a lot of pleasure from this site and love looking at other peoples' libraries. I have also discovered a great many good reads from here. My local library should be awarding me a long service award!!!!Where would we be without them???

Take care and good to hear from you.

Best wishes
