    Two more borrowed and i'm kicking off with H.E.Bates's " The Flying Goat ". A set of short stories.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong" Mahatma Gandhi.
    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    The City Of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau, clearly written for children but still very enjoyable. Now reading my first Don Winslow book, A Cool Breeze On The Underground. So far reminds me of Craig Johnson and Rick Riordan. Also have a few Arthur C Clarke books to get through.

    Doc by Mary Doria Russell- about 3/4 through and is so far the best book on the Dodge City clan I've read.
