Ooer, I’ve just done one of those impulse Amazon orders. You know where you dreamily add all sorts of things to your basket and then have a sod-it moment and buy the lot? Well, I’ve just gone and done exactly that. I’ve ordered Mothernight by Sarah Stovell, which looks and sounds fabulous, Rowan Coleman’s new one, The Accidental Wife which I am sure will be brilliant, two Goldfrapp CDs, some bits and bobs for the kids… Ahem. Must stop doing that just-can’t-resist thing on Amazon, especially as my To Be Read pile already resembles a small mountain…
I’m currently reading Mister Pip. I know, I know, you’ve all read it already and I’m the only person left in the world who hasn't yet… But ooh, isn’t it good? So vibrant and rich and beautiful. It’s the first title of a new book group I’m in so I’ve got to finish it by our meeting next Monday and think of some clever-sounding things to say about it other than “Oooh, isn’t it good?” It is fab to be in a book group again, I have to say. Wine, kettle chips, lovely new friends, gossip and oh yeah, a bit of chat about books. What more could you wish for?
PS I am very excited about tonight…Heroes is back on the box, and I’ve got last night’s Apprentice Sky-Plussed too as I was down the boozer and missed it. Ahhh – what a perfect night in!
It all adds up
