I finished the Edwina Currie..it was *ok*...readable..ish.

I've now started on a surprise market purchase. A Philippa Greggory I hadn't known about..*The Other Queen*. about Mary Queen of Scots. About 3 chapters in and am enjoying it immensely...but I love her books anyhow so there's no surprise there really lol x

Am reading 'The Bones of Avalon' by Phil Rickman - set in Elizabeth I's early reign, set in Glastonbury, sort of murder and mysticism. Quite readable.

Mike Ashley..thought I recognised his name..Knew i'd read one of his...just checked my bookshelf...he's done a great book about Boudicca.

Sheila..that sounds fab...i'm going to add that to my wish list. Thank you x

"Cowboy & Wills,"

written by, Monica Holloway, is a memoir about Monica's young son, Wills Price, who is diagnosed with a high functioning form of autism. This memoir can't be told without, Cowboy, a very unique dog.

The special love that Wills had with his dog enabled him to reach out to people in a way that was not previously possible because of his autism.

Given up on Mike Ashley .......... David Starkey seems far more promising !

Reading Second Nature by Alice Hoffman, not a long book but sort of compelling a strange love story sort of what you expect from Alice but good

Message for Muffy: I finished reading Jilly Cooper's 'Jump' a couple of days ago. I know slow reader. Itwas good she described National Hunt racing (which I love) very well. A bit sad in parts. I hope you get it for Mothers Day. Enjoy.

I have just started 'The reading group' by Elizabeth Noble. I have read two of her books, Alphabet weekends and The Girl next door. Both are very good especialy The Girl next door.

At the moment I'm reading a book called Corfu by Robert Dessaix. There are some nice descriptions of Corfu.


PatriciaAnn Report 23 Mar 2011 22:38

I've finished reading "Corfu"
About to start on a book called
"To my Daughter In France" by Barbara and Stephie Keating. I liked the picture on the front and I was intrigued by the title.

I'm now reading The Man who Disappared by Clare Morrall.
It's about an Accountant who disappears and the story is set in Exeter.


Muffyxx Report 27 Mar 2011 22:07

Thanks Welshbird...I'll let you know if the hints have worked next week lol.

I've just finished *The other Queen* by Philippa Gregory which was fab..as have all her books been imho.

I've a few to chose from...but I'm thinking of re reading a book I first read as a teenager...Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Däniken...it explores the idea of an extra terristrial (sp) visit to earth during primitive human times...much criticised..but when i read it as a youngster ...i felt it was feasible....interested to see if the passage of time has changed my mind or not.x

But Agatha have you read M.c.beatons Agatha Raisin series, about an amateur detective who is definitely not a Miss Marple,,,,,,,,they are very good can reccomend them but read from the beginning.

I have just read Sheila Flanagans My Favourite Goodbye...its a typical Flanagan set in Dublin and about families and their complications. It centres around Ash a cook who does corporate meals and gets involved with a multi millionaire.She is a complex character.. its a good read
