    That is on my ‘maybe list’ so I’d love to hear what you think of it when you have read it!

    I once attended a conference in Nottingham where there was a live question and answer by satellite ? with Goldman . It was hosted by the National Colleges and the ‘ host ‘ was John West Burnham - so two chaps I really rate . A good day

    Reading - just re visited ‘Capital’ by John Lanchester - excellent and ‘ A Gentleman of Moscow ‘ by Amor Towles - stunning.

    About to start the new Stuart Maconie about the NHS or may look again at ‘Playing to the Gallery’ by Grayson Perry. Am enjoying his Art Club.

    Almost finished this astonishing book. Turns out a plant knows enough not to break lockdown rules imposed by one's own boss.

    "Olive Kitteridge" by Elizabeth Strout. Heard her interviewed by Jane Garvey on Woman's Hour, who was a huge fan, and I am hooked too. A lovely book.

    Struggling to finish - just don’t get in on any level. Fabulous reviews and I read his fist novel which I really rated- so disappointing.

    I'm about two thirds of the way through Gone with the Wind. I started it at 16 and gave it up as it was too big an undertaking with everything else I had going on at the time. Yes, the references to slavery and black people jar in this day and age but the actual storyline and characterisation are fabulous. I still haven't decided if I like Scarlett or not! I saw the film a long time ago and don't really remember it.

    Nora Webster by Colm Toibin. I read it a while ago and put it forward as a good book group read so I'm no rereading it ready for the meeting in 10 days. Highly recommended.

    I’m re-Reading Ken Follett’s Kingsbridge trilogy before the prequel comes out in September. I’d forgotten how good they are, especially The Pillars of the Earth.

    Louise Candlish ‘The Other Passenger ‘- you do need to suspend belief and none of the characters are likeable but I wanted to know what happened at the end. Not as good as ‘Our House ‘

    Just finished Agent Running in the Field - le Carre. The best since The Spy Who Came in from the Cold. Loved it.
