I got The Twelve by Justin Cronin, which I am delighted about, if only I could get some time to start reading it.

I have bought myself a few in the 12 days of Kindle sale though - more than I will get a chance to read I dare say but I love a sale!

As an addition to the original posting - are there any of the ones received that you would recommend to others and those you wouldn't?

I bought my kids the children's book, Brian, His Granddad and the Cup of Ages by PJ Taylor which was recommended to me by a friend. I had never heard of him. So, am guessing he's a new author. It was a little expensive I thought for a kids book at £8.99. But the kids really enjoyed it which I guess is the main thing. Just a shame that I couldn't find anything else by him. Oh well.

P J Taylor is regularly on these Amazon forums. Try contacting him via the Childrens books forum or the new authors forum.

My parents got me my amazon wishlist of books - a good 15 books which i cant wait to get stuck into! The ones i can remember are:

The Twelve by Justin Cronin (Sequel to The Passage)
Shadow of the Night by Deborah Harkness (Sequel to A Discovery of Witches)
Me Before You by Jojo Moynes
The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan
A couple of Linwood Barclay books

I can't remember the rest off hand but that should keep me going for a while!

The Slavic languages are probably amongst the hardest, I personally think (I'm going back here to an earlier discussion on this page). Went to Prague this September for a few days, second time I've been. Difficult language, sounds very Russian, but isn't. The only word I know and I'm probably spelling this wrongly is prosim, pronounced proseem, which is thankyou I think - then again it could be please LOL - not sure now! Lovely place, spoilt by the many thousands of tourists on escorted sightseeing trips around the city. (I of course am not a tourist! LOL)

I got a cookery book called "Potato"
My husband, a keen walker, received "A Year in the Life of Snowdonia" by Bill Birkett, which is lovely.
I sneaked lots for myself in the Kindle 12 days sale though, and now I must eat the bank statement before himself sees it.

I got a late Christmas present on Saturday from my friend who always picks me excellent books - The Land Of Decoration by Grace McCleen. Very happy with this one!

Oor Wullie annual.

Every year, without fail, I get an Oor Wullie or The Broons annual from my parents.

I'm 47. And I'm not Scottish.
