I'm reading "A Life and a Half" about Peter Cadbury ........ I tried it about 18 months ago but put it down, last night I really got into it.  I have one by Dorothy Cadbury ......... again, it will be my 2nd attempt at it.  So far it hasn't made me hungry.  Much  :D

I caught a programme late last night about a kind of book club - Sarah Cox was chairing it, with Graham Norton and 4 others giving comments.  I may well catch up all 5 programmes to see whether there's anything I can put onto my 2 buy list ;-)

I began a book: "Biracial" this week - interesting view points, basically how humans regardless of 'tribe' are judgemental.

I can't listen to audio books without dropping off to sleep. I'm an avid  crime book reader.

I've preordered a book coming out in May called Eye of a Rook by an australian author.  Thought that it might be of interest or resonate with some.
It seems to be about the past and present treatments and consequences of vulvodynia maybe not so dissimilar in some ways to dealing with VA.

 :thankyou:

I've tried 'The Hedge Across India' twice already, nearly at the end - I so need to know if the hedge still existed in the 1990s  ;D

Finished in 3 nights : 'All The Young Men' : set in 1980s/90s Arkansa when AIDS began visiting the populations.  'From Bean to Bar' arrived this morning: A Chocolate Lover's Guide to Britain' ...........

Just finished Stephen King's latest short story called "Later".  It was a fast read and a good story, if you like his short stories as opposed to his mega novels.

Ha ha, yes he is!  I love the way he writes and his mind is so twisted but in a smart way, if that's possible. ;D

When I first started reading his books waaaay back when,  the images stuck in my head but I didn't really have bad dreams.  I've read almost every book he's written and I'm so used to his storytelling, nothing of his scares me now lol.

I've been reading books recommended by friends over the last year, taking a break from the scary stuff for a bit. :)
