    I've just finished Ben Elton's "TIME and TIME again and what an absolutely brilliant read. Have already read one or two of his but THIS one, amazing. I shall be seeking him out whenever I go to library now. Just a great great read.
    What's that say about me? I wonder.
    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.

    Alas, i am weak.

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

    I thoroughly enjoyed the first couple of his that I read, but then started finding them a bit 'sameish'. I shall look out for that one now you have said though. I see a fair bit of him in charity shops, I use the library for the particular, but browse the charity shops for general reading, I like contributing to the charity and having the book to pass on, and they are usually dirt cheap, the local Barnardo's shop was offering any four books for a quid the other day! I think they get far more than they sell.

    Mr.Buckle,
    I suppose , to be honest, his writings are a little shallow, me to perhaps, I suppose, but this one has the most perfect ending. Would like to know what you think of it if you do read it.

    I've been listening to a lot of audiobooks lately. I borrow from the library and listen in the car on my way to and from work. Currently about a third of the way through Terry Pratchett's 'I Shall Wear Midnight' and loving it. The narration is quite perfect.

    I found a pretty cool book at my library about the working memory, how it differs from IQ, and how to improve it. Its called 'The Working Memory Advantage.' I started it but I'll let you know how I feel at the end.

    All of my stuff is here. Best place to get my attention. You'll have my love immediately.

    Going to read the naturalist which was number one in science fiction on amazon and they had it at a special price. So I bought it. I think it's a science fiction thriller probably with a detective. But that's from reading the blurb.
    I would follow as in believe in the words of good moral leaders. Rather than the beliefs of oneself.

    I just finished reading " the way back home " by Freya North and it really resonated with me. A tale of self-doubt and insecurities and another great read imo.
