    I've just finished Take Nothing With You by Patrick Gale. Absolutely wonderful.

    I've just finished reading 'Bookworm - A Memoir of Childhood Reading' by Lucy Mangan - a lovely book that you can dip in and out of easily.

    Birdcage Walk by Helen Dunmore, just getting into it. Just finished Undercliff by mark Brend ( married to my niece) It was a mystery and I like his plain unornamented style but he didn't answer all the questions he posed - at least, if he did, the answers were buried and I didn't spot them.
    I love Patrick Gale - you've just reminded me how much @friedgreentomatoes . Note to self - put it on the kindle.

    Just finished The World at War by Mark Arnold-Forster - the accompanying book to the landmark 1970s TV series. Excellent.

    Now reading Stasiland by Anna Funder. Life in East Germany behind the Berlin Wall.

    Bitter Orange by Clare Fuller . Err I finished it but parts I hated and yet on the whole I felt it was accomplished - make sense ?

    ‘The Five ‘by Hallie Rubenfold . The lives of the women murdered by Jack the Ripper . Fabulous social history but heart stoppingly bleak . A truly tremendous read
