    How about this for coincidence;

    I borrowed three books from the library yesterday and the first one I started reading when I got home is about a man who, after working for the same employer his whole working life, has just retired and is totally lost. Doesn't know how to deal with retirement.

    By the way, the newspaper that I read was promoting a book-title yesterday entitled " getting old, deal with it " but it's written about and for woman.
    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.

    The Bitterest Pill (a Jesse Stone novel written by Reed Farrell Coleman) Fentanyl kills people, is it murder to sell it? I haven't read the whole thing but I'd say it should be in a reasonable world.

    Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See on audiobook. I can't believe foot-binding was even legal much less common practice that only died out relatively recently. So many rules regarding how people interacted. I'm not usually into books about the lives of women in general but this one is fascinating. (Does remind me of Memories of a Geisha)

    Conor Bowman's " Horace Winter says Goodbye " proved difficult to read, although it's only fiction, it was about an old man whose whole life had been littered with missed chances just like mine. Reminiscences and regrets aplenty. Deep sigh...

    Life eh?

    Started reading and bought it soon after because it's a short essay on suicide...when I burst out laughing at a suicide note quoted I just had to stop before I read it to the end...I adore short books but 11 quid for this nearly put me of until I read...my darling wife..I despise you..good bye...

    Just finished 'The hare with the amber eyes', 'Hard times', and 'The girl with the dragon tattoo' all on the same day. Time I went and trawled the charity shop bookshelves, the mist is gradually lifting, if only the sun would come out.

    I've just read Cressida McLaughlin's " The Cornish Cream Tea Bus " and it's brilliant.
    I'm afraid that this confirms what Mr.Buckle has said about my being a romantic.

    Just a note here, whenever I get charity shop books, I've started putting them in a plastic bag in the freezer for a couple of days, since I learned about book mites. :/

    Much to my surprise, I 've just finished a TOM CLANCY, "Line of Sight".

    It's not a bad read if that's your sort of thing.
