For reading l have a number of jo nesbo books lined up for later . Then will have to go to my book shelf for more . Plenty there .
Just finished Kate Atkinson’s latest, Big Sky. Ann Cleeves’ The Long Call is next and I bought Wolf Hall last week. I was a Hilary Mantel fan before she embarked on the historical stuff. Eight months on Ghazzah Street was the first of hers I read and can recommend it. I’ve got a notion to reread Le Carré’s Smiley books but there are so many new authors to try. Oh and Barbara Kingsolver’s Unsheltered is very good.
I read all sorts of books and so thankful for my kindle, I have appalling eye sight, great that I can still read.
Check out Diana Galaboden (sp) she’s written six or seven books in the Outlander series. Well written and well researched, part historical, part romantic (not sloppy romance) covers everything really.
One of those I might re-read is A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth. It's a great book to escape into. First read about 20yrs ago when I spent several weeks ill in bed. It's 1500 pages (hence a bit heavy to hold for very long) but it really is right up there as one of the very best novels of modern times (not just my opinion!)
