We visited St Louis a couple of years back and I had hoped it might be possible to get to the Missouri quilt company ... sadly not in the time we had to spare.
I so wanted to go because I had watched their tutorials and which are amazing. Certainly helped this novice quilter! I wrote to Jenny to thank her for her truly great tutorials.
Perhaps if we visit Missouri another time ...

I’ve just finished The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald. There is a recent movie of this, but the novel is so much better. It was written in the 1970s but is set in 1959-60. It is about a widow who opens a Bookshop in a small Suffolk town. The period and the location are wonderfully portrayed. It’s also very short.

I’ve also read When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kanithi. It is an account of his treatment for lung cancer intertwined with some religion and philosophy. It’s aver thought provoking work. He’s an American whose family came from India. He qualifies as a neurosurgeon after being diagnosed. Quite heartbreaking.

Thanks for your recommendations and comments smasha12. I've not read The Bookshop but have seen the film advertised on our film channel, will check it out now.
Will add both authors to list. Thank you again.

I met someone yesterday I've not seen in 25 years or more. The first thing she said was oh, you don't look any different! All I could think of was: gosh, have I always looked this old !!! ?? I know it was meant as a compliment and I certainly took no offence whatsoever. To be honest she didn't look any different either. Maybe we have just aged very well indeed.
Life .... got to laugh which I did later.... It was great to catch up on her family news.

Have added latest two authors to our list !!!

Three more pages before we have to start a new section for our recommendations and discussions.
My aim is to merge this current page and the authors linked to it, so everything stays as it is for a few months. However, it may then throw the page numbering off ... I love a challenge.
Will be in touch !!!

Also a fan of Harry Bosch

Just finished Scott Turow's "Identical" - wow that was some read!
I noticed this author's name on the top 100 books/authors' list in the national press yesterday.
I only happened upon the book in the local charity shop.
Good choice (did have to skip one or two paras because of content, but heyho). Definitely recommend it despite the skipped paras!!!

Good luck with the move, Sally. You will be busy. Are you moving far? Sometimes moving a short distance can be more work. We did that 3 or so years ago. The problem is that you get rid of much less which is why we now rent a storage unit.

On the reading front. Yesterday I finished Love is Blind by William Boyd. I really like his novels. Each one is different and very well written. I read it as an ebook and it returned itself automatically to the library. Even though I had a break of several weeks, the story came rushing back to me. Will be looking for another by him.

Hi smasha12 - thanks for your note.
Have added in a link on our Authors' List to this page - this is the 4th time William Boyd has been recommended here!

Some recent reads ...
Lee Child's "Bad luck and trouble" - in fact a re-read but it was well worth it!
James Patterson's "Haunted" - I like this author's books but this one was just a little "light", central character Detective Michael Bennett. The chapters were very short which usually means everything goes at quite a pace, but it just didn't quite work for me.
Just wondered if anyone else had read these books. Got a great book on the go now.... more later ....

Reading Crawdads now, and find it to be one of the best books I've read in a long time. I usually fall a sleep reading... not with this book! I have to force myself to put it down so I can do other things.
Thank you for all your recommendations. Harry's Trees may be next.


Thank you for your post Lsay3. I've yet to get my copy ... !!! Better get on the case.
Many thanks for your comments. Glad you enjoyed the book

Hi everyone - please see recommendation from kittykatzmom who commented on main page, so you won't have received an email prompt and as this book has had many comments and thoughts very recently, I am copying this post here. I'm sure those members who read this book will be pleased to have further comments.

"I just read 'Where the Crawdads Sing'. Absolutely a wonderful book. At times I got so emotional at Kya's life. I really thought she would be raped by her father - he is a mess. The ending was a shocker - can't tell you how it ends. This a book to put on your list to read. I won't watch the movie, as they always change things around in movies."
