    Still reading Christopher Hill on John Bunyan, it is slow. In the meantime I have also read "Corduroy Mansions" by McCall Smith and started 'The fairy stories of Oscar Wilde' that my daughter gave me for Christmas.
    My sister gave it the thumbs up, and the little I've read so far it's good.

    'Arabia through the Looking Glass' by Jonathan Raban. I recommend it to anyone; it's written with blunt good humour (mostly in English).

    1979, bit dated for a travel book.
    A new story

    I finally got 'A Family Business' recorded and loaded, all 37 mins of it, much longer than any I have done before.

    I strongly dislike travel. I picked up the book from outside a flat, which I am sure an old man was clearing out.

    I am not alone in leaving books for people, there is a garden wall in Bohemia Road in Hastings that often has books left on it.

    13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher. I watched the first season of the TV show and didn't like it very much, but wanted to see what the book was all about and why it was such a phenomenon. I much prefer the book, but I have read a lot better. It is well written and engaging enough, but not easy to read by any stretch. Very depressing in parts and the theme is obviously quite dark.

    Yes, I've seen it on Netflix, it always did strike me as being dark.

    Reading a Sophie Hannah book, The Killings at Kingfisher Hill, a Poirot novel. It's not bad so far, although it's been a while since I read a genuine Christie, so hard to compare.
