Reading List

03 May


This year has turned into something of a reading marathon, i cannot recall ever reading so much in a consistent pattern.  Yes, par of the catalyst has been the purchase of the kindle and also finding the free books on the Amazon website. It has become something of a habit to ead for a while once in bed and I have found it all rather entertaining.  although the year did start wth the good old paperback pile at the side of the bed.

Stephen Frey – The Fry Chronices
Jane Lovering – Please Don’t Stop The Music
Gillian Bagwell – The Darling Strumpet
Elizabeth Jasper – Lying In Wait
Simon Leighton-Porter – The Seven Stars
Alan McDermott – Grey Justice
Craig Cabell – Terry Pratchett
Theresa Weir – The Girl with the Cat Tattoo

Terry Pratchett

  • Snuff
  • Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents
  • The Science of Discworld

Philippa Gregory

  • Lady Of The Rivers
  • The King Maker’s Daughter

Kathy Reichs

  • Monday Mourning
  • Devil Bones
  • Deadly Decisions
  • Cross Bones

17 book! In four months – good grief!!

And I haven’t got round to re-reading my favourite light read “The Cat Who Came In From The Cold” by Deric Longden.

    That’s certainly good going :yes:

    I read a couple of Kathy Reichs books when I was staying in Portugal. I liked one but not the other (I can’t for the life of me remember either titles though one included the word ‘bones’)

    Yikes, you have been going some! I like to read in bed too … preferably until the book drops out of my hands. Hub has Kindle but not me – I haven’t been converted yet and I suspect all the books I would like to read I would have to pay for 😦

      I know – the number shocked me when I started listing them all. And it is not like they are quick 100 page jobs either!

      It was my Sister’s idea, she twisted my arm to get a kindle and now look what’s happened 😆

    I love to read. I dont have a kindle but have download a few free books on the phone but I am a diehard book . And at the moment have 4 books ready to read. I love patricia cornwell,James patterson, John grisham, james clancy, Erin Evonovich-very funny reading, And anything else i can get my hands on. Right now on my phone I am reading Riders of the PurpleSage by zane grey and Jane Eyre of course that is a reread. But while waiting it is always on my phone and they were free. I have two new books that I am on the waiting list at the library and am 65th in line. I love reading xxx

      In the past I have read a couple of Jeffrey Deaver Lincoln Rimes series. I found The Bone Collector a gripping read and the film an okay adaption.

      I amalso an audio book fan, got a shelf full. I friend bought me a Ngaio March one very Agatha Christie [also read all of hers too, still got them!].

    I’m nearly halfway through reading : on my kindle :
    It’s a fictionalised account of the life of the young lady who’s generally acknowledged as being Jack the Ripper’s last victim, astonishingly well imagined, and utterly compelling.
