Am in the middle of Blue Shoes and Happiness by Alexander McCall Smith, one of the "No. 1 Ladies Detective" books, it's about the fifth one I've read and I've enjoyed them all. I've temporarily put on hold a biography of Anthony Powell. It's a hard slog, because, amongst other things, I think the author assumes that you've read "Dance to the Music of Time", which I haven't yet, but mean to someday.

I really loved that book.. in fact read it twice..
I'm reading a new book which apparently has just been released called iReckon by Greg Heywood which I was recommended by a friend at work. It's like nothing i have read before it is full of suspense, intrigue and some deep thought provoking bits.. Heather

Sideways by Rex Pickett. I loved the movie and bought the book while on a trip to America a couple of years ago. Finally got to it and really enjoying it. Lots of humour, stunning writing (some of it really complicated) and amazing characterisation. Very different from the film in parts too, so keeping me very interested. Recommended.

Ok, The Girl With the dragon Tatoo is a good read, but I was disappointed as somehow I have be lead to expect more and it just wasn't there!

Yes I am hardy. 30 plus years as a midwife does that to you. Maybe the play IS more scary.

dream catcher by DinahMccall Have just discovered her and her books are great. She also writes thrillers under the name Sharon Sala & they are brilliant too.

I love Alexander McCall Smith's books. They are light entertainment but very well written in good English (which is becoming quite rare)

I loved Mitch Albom's The Five People You Mee in Heaven, brilliant book, one of the few books I could read again and again! Enjoy.

I'm reading Balthazar Jones and the Tower of London Zoo by Julia Stuart. I love books like this - a little bit quirky, charming and original. This is Julia's second novel. Her first novel was great too. (The Matchmaker of Perigord) Highly recommended for light, humorous reading in-between more serious reads.

The Matchmaker Of Perigord

Edit - I have just finished Balthazar Jones and wanted to add to what I've already written because, although this is a light-hearted, fun read, it also deals with very sensitive issues such as relationships and bereavement in such a sympathetic and beautiful way, every word has been a joy to read. It has literally made me laugh and made me cry. Highly recommended.
