    Oh! That phrase takes me back, and yet I had forgotten her name until you mentioned it. I may have to take a trip down memory lane too :)

    Reading World Without End by Ken Follett, nearly done though and have to work out whether to have a break as read the three first ones quite quickly or move onto something else in my library.

    Also read some new Peter James books - The follow up to the Cold Hill book and a short novella about a holiday in France. (Sorry cant remember titles as since my accident I'm finding it hard to remember things)

    I've also got some books on reserve at the local library one of those being the latest Lucinda Riley - might be called the Murders at Fleat House

    I'm taking my 2 granddaughters to the library this week to join up. My eldest granddaughter is reading a comic book series and I wanted to open her eyes to the range they had in our local library. Even a comic book is long enough to keep her off the phone and laptop etc. As for the wee one she's just learning to read and can have non verbal days so hoping a book might open up questions about pictures etc

    Just finished A Town called Solace by Mary Lawson.
    Very well written, poignant but sort of a who done it/ what happened.
    I read it really quickly, which is a good sign

    Well I read the fourth Kingsbridge saga by Ken Follett

    I've now picked up a book by Barbara Erskine on the kindle. Think I've already read it.

    Next week hubby going to pick up the new Lucinda Riley from my mother in law so I dont have to wait for the library.

    Also going to order all the Diana Gabladon Outlander series for the Kindle as most of them are very heavy books.

    And very naughtily bought 4 books yest, physical ones, from Amazon. I know for definite one of them is the latest Edward Rutherufurd book called China. He writes about the origins of a country with characters you either like or loathe and he follows their family through time. Has a Russia, New York, Paris, Sarum, London, Dublin.Well worth reading

    Harry Turtledove at one time kept me entertained, not only for the World War series of books you mention but for his game on the American civil war series from his novel called, 'If The South Won The War'. It spanned over eighty years and his characters were engaging and realistic. His what if books, such as Pearl harbour, Spanish armada, and one about colonialism, which I can't remember. But his recent offerings have not lived up to his better standards of his earlier series. I could do with re-reading them again.
