I am reading 'Tales From A Midwife" by Jennifer Worth, a fascinating trilogy of the life of a midwife in 1950's East End of London.

I have found my feminine side!

Just read
When God Was a Rabbit by Sarah Winman.
Story of family told over four decades covering highs, lows, laughter, drama and everything else that makes a family. An unusal thought provoking book which twists and turns and touches on historical events, an interesting read.

Sarah-sounds good,
I just started reading, A Tiny bit Marvellous by Dawn French (fiction). It's a bit daft and
light-hearted but o.k. Image

Just finished reading a trilogy by Maria V Snyder. Magic and wizards, really enjoyed it. Will be looking out for more of hers.
I was thinking about joining the local library book club but running book clubs used to be part of my job and I'm not sure how the new staff would feel about it Image

Am nearing the end of 'One Red Paperclip' by Kyle MacDonald. The story of a guy who traded his way from one red paperclip up to a house in one year, fourteen trades and a lot of adventure. It's light and entertaining, though it has it's flaws. It's not the best book ever, but seeing as it's not supposed to be, it does it's job.
