Winter is once again upon us, and the best way to make it bearable is to snuggle up, be warm and cosy, and READ!

You've given me an idea for #2 though. I'm up to book 4 in the Tommorrow series so I might put the next book down for my #2 :)

If you would like Sally I'll let you know what I think. I only thought of it because I recently watched the movie From Time To Time (with Maggie Smith in it) that the book is based on. Apparently there is a whole series of books although I forget how many.

I'm sure I will. I bought it after finishing The Time Traveler's Wife because I loved that and I enjoyed the writing style. It's been sitting on my shelf for so long that I just kind of forgot about it!

I had forgotten The Children of Green Knowe was based on a book. ABC use to play it on a regular basis when I was little. I don't think it will be just on my TBR list I think I might put it on my to buy list.

Trina (trina88) | 263 comments Rhiannon, I'd be interested to hear what you think of Unbearable Lightness. I've had one friend read it, so I know her opinion, but I want a few others so that I can decide if I want to read it.


Rhiannon | 10 comments Hey Trina, I will definitely be posting on here as soon as I'm finished it. I understand your interest, as I am reading it not so much for any sort of writing skill but instead for the raw emotional content. I once heard Portia read an excerpt and I was close to tears, she is so brutally honest about the insanity of having an eating disorder. I had no idea. So yes, stay tuned and we will see how that read goes :)
