I'm really stuck with War and Peace, it has taken me 3 weeks to read 220 pages. That is just into the 3rd book.

I don't know whether to carry on, with the hope that it gets better, or have a break and read my grandsons Ben10 books.

Oh dear Georgina I don't know what to suggest :S
Sorry x

Now reading the last of "The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo" Trilogy. Hve got about half way through. I'm keeping my fingerd crossed that it all turns out ok for "The Girl" of the title. (not sure that it will though).

Thanks Patricia.

There are 975 pages of small print. I have just worked out that at 20 pages per night that will take me about 37 days to finish, or less if the story bucks up a bit. Not so bad after all if I look at it in that light,
If I put it aside I shall proably not go back to it, like I did with Satanic Verses when it got weird.

Right, back off the computer then and off to bed.

How does averyone get through all these books?

I'm now going to start reading Dance to the Music of Time (Winter) by Anthony Powell.
Georgina the print in my book must have been larger becuase there was about 1400 pages. I would carry the book around with me in a separate bag because it was too heavy for my rucksack!

I'm reading "Dead to the World" by Charlaine Harris. It's one of the truse blood series.

I lent my Mum 'My Best Friends Girl' by Dorothy Koomson. One of my all time greatest reads. She read the book in less than a day ... it comes highly recommended, but make sure you have a box of tissues by your sides x

Have just finished reading "Mister Candid" by Jules Hardy.
The mind of a murderer, the heart of a saint. "He's responsible for the deaths of many people. But everything I've learned about him makes me believe he's a fundamentally good person. Sounds crazy, doesn't it? How can he be a good person? He is a killer"

She also wrote "Altered Land"

Part way through "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell" by Susanna Clarke.
A book about Magic and Magicians in the early 19th centuary. (Fiction)

Have also just started "Desert Queen" a non-fiction book by Janet Wallach.
It is about - " The Extraordinary Life of Gertrude Bell; Adventurer, Advisor to Kings, Ally of Lawrence of Arabia"

I've just finished reading Ellie Andrews has second thoughts by Ruth Saberton, it's about her search for a suitable husband, she did not marry the man I thought she should marry though.


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 16 Jun 2011 11:26

Agatha, isn't that often the way! Do you ever feel like yelling at a charecter in a book "No, don't do that!"

It's one of the reasons that it isn't a good idea for me to read in public.

I'm in the middle of reading Far North by Marcel Theroux.

sorry, didn't mean to shout and disturb you all.

I'm a third of the way into recently published:
Area 51 by Annie Jacobsen.
Area 51 - Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base - which is not far from Las Vegas. A base the US still denies is there for almost 60 years!
Deals with stealth planes from the 1950s - and intriguing input about the 1947 Roswell, New Mexico, UFO that crashed with small dead persons on board.
A very different book indeed.
