The Things We Never Said.


Rabbit Stew and a Penny or Two.

Quite a few of the books are available from Birmingham Libraries, although there may be a short waiting list for some.
So should probably be okay, whichever way the vote goes.

I want to read them all!!!

Interesting thought. Why do we choose the books we do. Some choose because they are available at the library, I choose those that are on kindle and my choices then are price led. I have so many books to read on my book shelves I just can’t justify paying out 5 – 7 pounds for another book.

You may remember I said something similar when I agreed to continue with Greaders some time back. This time I will read the winner (99p on Kindle) But will opt out of the runners up which sadly are £5.99 and £4.99 on Kindle.

I will also read Rabbit Stew which I have on my book shelf and probably The Girl who came home which is £1.99 on Kindle.

Sorry if this seems mercenary.

Have just ordered from the library. dorotheas war, and the bones of you. Hopefully they won't be too long.
Just read anns thread above I might see if one of my lads can download the book the girl who came home as this would of been one that I had chosen if it was available at the library. Think I can spare £1.99

I must admit that I tend to choose books I can get on the Kindle, although I do try to make sure they are available in paperback at a reasonable price.

I shall read the Bones of You and probably splash out on Dorothea's war (as the subject interests me) and the Girl Who Came Home.

This morning I requested all three books from the library. If I'm lucky I might be able to collect one or two next week. Keeping my fingers crossed.
