Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame.

It is simply that time of year again. Time to visit old friends in old books, with a pipeful of cavendish and warm apple cider. I'm going to read this outside in one of the last warm sunbeams. I used to consider this a book for children, but I've found that it's one of the most mature works of all-time.



The Silent Patient - Alex Michaelides
Patriots - James Wesley, Rawles
Bird by Bird - Anne Lamott
And rereading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - JK Rowling

I have a hard time reading one book at a time lol. I'm really trying to broaden what I read but also not completely cut out what I already enjoy if that makes sense.

I have recently finished Peter Hopkirk's 'Secret Service East of Constantinople', this led me on to his 'Quest for Kim' about the actual people and places behind Kipling's 'Kim' which I zipped through and finished this morning. The library now also has his 'The Great Game' waiting for me which the missus will pick up when she goes in later in the week.

The secret life of bees by Sue Monk Kidd. She is easy to read, at times she goes toward syrupy sweet or starts to indulge her darlings, but manages to stay on the right side of acceptable, It's a two day fill in book, more entertaining than some.
