Please vote for two books as usual We may have to wait a while until Tess can get to a computer to read the suggestions and hopefully vote. But many many thanks to Tess for taking the trouble to write by snail mail to give us our suggestions.

Tess was hoping to see her grandson with his lap top so she could vote so, if it is ok with everyone I will leave the result until this afternoon.. If Tess is unable to vote by then I am sure she will go with the rest of us and I can let her know the result by post. <3 At the moment two books are tying as you can see for yourselves.

I have finished reading at the moment, so am waiting !! I have downloaded both The Letter and The Story of Us - as I can see that two more votes in any direction would not alter what is obvious. .I'll look in again tomorrow to make sure I got it right - but it's my bedtime now and I am ready to read! Happy reading all.

I have been rather naughty since we moved and have joined the library down here and have whisked through the three books that I got out.. plus I bought two from book shops and one from a library chuck out whilst I was away on holiday.

One of the books I just finished was Dorothy Koomson's "The Rose Petal Beach" which was great BTW.. I also read an Anita Shreve - The Lives of Stella Bain.. which like Toby's Room (from GR's bookclub) was set in WW1.. liked that as well..

Anyways was at another library today collecting an out of print book I wanted to read, had ordered as I still belong to the Auckland libraries as well.. and whilst there I picked up Dorothy Koomson's " The Flavours of Love"

So if it is okay with you people I will pass on a review of it to the thread and then go from there.. I will have to also catch up with what has been read since I have gone away. I still have heaps of my own to read but am sort of doing a bit of both... and with not doing house renovations have a little more time on my hands.

It would be great for you to rejoin us, even though you may not be able to read every time Perse. Now we have lost our lovely Berona we are very few. <3
