N.Y.H.O. 2012 - Week 03 - The Chocolate Craving Fa&hellip by Nobody You've Heard Of
This is a very humorous read and if only the chocolate was real! I downloaded this story free. It is a very short story which only takes a few minutes to read. I enjoyed story numbers one and two too, which were also downloaded free. I was looking out for number four when suddenly all the stories have acquired a price to download. If they have to be paid for, as a very short read, they need to be less, or to remain free. If NYHO is able to continue to publish a short story each week, perhaps they can be collated into a few books which each contain a number of the stories. Otherwise they will become expensive to buy over the year.
Stairlift to Heaven: Growing Old Disgracefully by Terry Ravenscroft
I can't honestly say that I can remember seeing the name Terry Ravenscroft on the titles to the many shows for which he has written material.

His wife must have the patience of a saint. In this book Terry is 65 and shares some of the antics and pranks he gets up to with his partner in crime and neighbour from just up the road. They both act like little school boys most of the time.

I really enjoyed the book and if I come across others by Terry I will pick them up to read. I did laugh out loud a few time but perhaps not as often as I expected to.
Confessions of a GP (The Confessions Series) by Benjamin Daniels

The book has lots of very short chapters and so can be picked up and put down again easily when time is short. I laughed out loud a few times, especially at the chapter about keeping things interesting for the doctor. It gives a bit of insight into what happens behind the scenes in a GPs surgery. It also highlights the new culture of blaming and suing people and so doctors have to be very careful about keeping detailed records. Even though he has an important job Dr Daniels can still see the funny side of situations and seems quite prepared to help his patients with tasks most Drs wouln't even consider doing.

I will probably be thinking about antics from this book the next… Read more
