No remarks, I hope people have seen this. I have ordered Tryptich and The Cornish House for my Kindle and already have One Damned thing (which is a little strange, hadn't realised it is science fiction (I think), and Watch over me. Shall possibly also read Sunshine and Showers as I already have it.


Mersey Report 25 Aug 2013 12:40

Im on it Ann....I already have Tryptich :-)...I downloaded it a few weeks ago....

Some real variations this time which is good to see :-)

Have downloaded Tryptich, The Last Goodbye and Rosings, then found that One Damned Things was free - so I downloaded that, too. Will start on Tryptich and see how far I get after that, before the review date.


AnninGlos Report 26 Aug 2013 09:09

OK Berona, looks like you have plenty to be going on with.

Just seen this. My internet connection is a bit iffy at the moment.
Will do my best! The New Birmingham Central Library is due to open in just over a weeks time, I'm hoping that this means there will be more library books in circulation.


Persephone Report 31 Aug 2013 02:26

Returned today from Middle of Middle Earth.. (Wellington).. and have noted the books to read.
Triptych is around here somewhere as got it from a Christchurch secondhand bookshop in April.

Can order The Cornish House okay..

and I think I will give Sunshine and Showers a go.. as can get that.



Persephone Report 1 Sep 2013 08:21

Just been and looked at library site and they now have plenty of copies of The Beach Cafe.. so have ordered that since you all praised it.

Going to have my work cut out trying to read them all plus another couple of my own. I started another book while I was away as well.

Persie .. and have entered 6th October on my sticky note.


AnninGlos Report 1 Sep 2013 09:43

Thanks Perse hope you enjoyed the break. :-)


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 18 Sep 2013 01:42

Hoping to go to the new Library in Birmingham onThursday (19TH Sept).
Will try to get the recommended books.


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 20 Sep 2013 16:54

Went to the library yesterday. None of the books on the shelves but have requested Triptych and a couple of the others.

Meanwhile have got another Karin Slaughter book plus The Novel in the Viola.

Reviews might be later than usual this time :-(


Persephone Report 21 Sep 2013 11:04

I finished The Beach House Cafe this morning despite all the interruptions.. quite pleased that I got four read even if one was from the last time.

Now am reading what I had put aside to read.. before I get back to the fray of GR reading next month.

And I must read Dermot's contribution on the writer's group...



AnninGlos Report 3 Oct 2013 17:07

Just realised review date is 6 October, good job I checked, with going on holiday it puts me all out. I have read some of them anyway so no problem. Will probably put the threads up tomorrow as I have daughter and son in law for the weekend. :-D
