I am currently reading The above named book. It has an interesting style, dual narratives, one current and one which works in flashback. Interwoven are what appear to be random pages from journals. at the moment it is difficult to link the separate elements but nonetheless the book is powerful and riveting. Both men have gained my sympathy and I want to read on and find out if they will get the be with the one they love.

Have just finished reading Resurrectionist by James McGee and thoroughly enjoyed it despite the rather gruesome subject matter. Grave robbers were clearly big business in Victorian England, but this tale had enough of a plot to make it interesting and realistic. There were also connotations of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein in the plot. Can't wait to read Ratcatcher which is actually his first book but I like to do things backwards.
My friend just sent me a book for my birthday, The Shop on Blosson Street by Debbie Macomber which seems to unite my two most favourite things in the world, reading and knitting, and I have had on my shelf for over a year, yep you guessed it, the second one. Thank goodness I haven't read it yet. I now have the pleasure of reading both of them one after the other. Sheer bliss. Of course I might just have to get the animals to calm down in order to read. They all seem a little intent on reproducing just lately with puppys and bunnies galore. Just call me Noah

In the beginning for me there have always been books. Even as a child I was totally obsessed by books. I was willing to do anything if only it meant getting a book. I am getting better and I can generally resist the temptation to buy every new book I see. Well most of the time. I have yet to learn how not to visit the library three times a week and check out ten books at a time even though I know I won't have the chance to read all of them. I do my best but one wonam just isn't enough and then the darn publishers and writers go and send out another lot. I have no hope of ever completing my list of good reads.
