At the library
I went to the library to-day to change my books, I’ll tell you later what books I got, but first……..I wonder how long the craze for e-books will last ? I give it five years at the outside, if in fact people haven’t fallen out of love with them already, or so I hear, Nothing, in my mind beats a proper book, be it paper back or hard-bound, especially at the end of the day you get into bed plump up the pillows behind your head, pick up your book, remove the bookmark and settle into the pages of your latest tale. what can possibly be cosy about a lump of plastic in your hand. ?? but then that is only my opinion.
To get back to what I have chosen…. I shan’t bore you with what I took back as I can choose six books but only read one, , now that would be costly on a Kindle. … I digress….”RAW” by Marni Mullholland, a true story about a young girl who was groomed , and prostituted by her social worker, ”BREAKING THE SILENCE” by Dianne Chamberlain, the intro… ”my husband shot himself in our bedroom, the little girl was standing at the bottom of the stairs screaming and hasn’t uttered a word since’….. a book in the style of Jodi Piccult, who has written some real gritty family stuff…..”CHILDREN OF THE WAR YEARS” a documentary of the children who grew up 1939 – 1945, as I did. so it should be a bit of a memory lane experience. Finally ”NEW YORK” by Edward Rutherford, a huge tome of a tale, I read his best seller SARUM twice, my all time favourite book. If NEW YORK is half as good I’ll be well pleased.
Well that’s it for now folks, two blogs in one week. phew. Enjoy
