All eight were excellent reads - no duffers, as I call them. A bit of a mixed bag too. One non-fiction, three crime, a fantasy for Carl's Once Upon a Time challenge, a horror, and a couple of what you might call modern fiction I suppose. I read my first Kindle book and loved using it, so that, for me, was quite momentous (I'm easily pleased).
Next month I really want to get stuck in to Carl's Once Upon a Time challenge... my pile of books for that is calling to me and, in fact, I've started another, The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. I also have another Kindle book sent to me by an author to read - Dreaming, Not Sleeping by Julia Kavan. Looking forward to that.
I'm assuming I'll come back from Cornwall with books, or maybe I'll be able to resist? Or maybe not... (I can hear Deslily laughing hysterically from here.) I should come back with photos although the weather forecast doesn't look too promising. Was hoping to bore you all with photos of my beloved Cornwall's coastline and will certainly do my best to fulfill that threat... er... promise.
Happy Reading while I'm away.
