Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Moved 21 books onto my voyage today. I swore I'd not overload it but I've now got 42 books on it. Sigh.

Bought Darren's new Ward book, The Silence of the Mimesof course, which got me a free copy of Gaiman's Stardust. Stardust

I've also had to download the first Lemony Snicket The Bad Beginningbook to read for my ten year olds.

Currently reading a L'engle A Wrinkle in Time for my ten year olds.

Got a couple of others to read for them this weekend as well. Yay.


Michael Cargill Cargill (michaelcargill) | 3001 comments I'm making my way through The Fatal Shore: The Epic of Australia's Founding

Fascinating stuff indeed. Shows what a horrendous place the 19th century was and why libertarians are mentalists.


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Ooooo that looks good!


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments I've got his Rome book, but not the Australia one. Cool.

Are you proud of me, Patti?


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments I'm always proud of you, Will.

Bend over and I'll give you a pat on the head.

I tried, am trying, to limit the number on new voyage too Patti, not doing so well I got 162 on it already. Infact, I am going to slim them down anud Take some back off again.

This weekend I got Kaths 2 books, the First Horseman, The Miniaturist, The Killers of The King and Secret Dreams. ( sorry I can't remember how to do the links, I will go and refresh my memory, just not tonight )

message 11: by Anita (new)

Anita | 3758 comments Of course, thank you David ! Killers of the King: The Men Who Dared to Execute Charles I is that right ?
You will soon learn David that me and the technical bits don't always go together, well ok then we rarely go together !

Anita | 3758 comments The First Horseman
I don't remember it being quite as easy as that

Graham Garrity (grahamgarrity) | 49 comments The Victim : A Rufus Stone Novel

Cracking book about hostage negotiation written by a hostage negotiator. If you like Lee Child let this be your next read.

Philip Whiteland | 3146 comments Loads, because I'm flying soon and reading is the only way I can distract myself! Just downloaded the complete works of G.K. Chesterton.

Andrew Barrett | 1612 comments Imperfect Strangers by David. Really looking forward to this; it comes highly recommended.

For some reason, I've never encountered his work, but Terry Pratchett is a fan so I've got to give it a try :-)

Jim | 22035 comments I like some of GKC's stuff. Some of the Father Brown stories are better than others, I don't think he had the consistency of, for example, Sherlock Holmes stories

Kath Middleton | 25093 comments Just bought David Haynes' Beneath the Boards

Free at the moment, innit?


message 32: by David (new)

David Staniforth (davidstaniforth) | 7939 comments A bargain at half the price.

Will Macmillan Jones (willmacmillanjones) | 11721 comments I'm being jostled by the horde of authors offering Stu suggestions...


message 37: by Stuart (new)

Stuart Vernon | 61 comments I wrote a few books but never hoard anyone into buying them lol. At the minute I am reading a WWE biography by Mick Foley - so if you fancy something different then try that.


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments I grabbed Revival today.

I blame whoever it was that mentioned it in the just started.

I'm aching to start reading it!

Rosemary (grooving with the Picts) (nosemanny) | 9111 comments I downloaded The Bone Clocks and The Book of Strange New Things yesterday because they were both £1.99, though I see the Michel Faber is up to £3.27 today. Both causing indexing probs on my kindle so had to take them off it for the moment.


message 41: by Marc (new)

Marc Nash (sulci) | 7481 comments am reading Book of Strange Things right now and loving it Rosemary. Didn't enjoy Bone Clock really.

Stuart Vernon | 61 comments I'm in the process of downloading the Stephen King entire bookography (well, apart from Rage)

✿Claire✿ (clairelm) | 3055 comments I got How (Not) to Kiss a Prince for free the other day and I may have downloaded and read the entire series since then.... and started on the spin off one... Not necessarily the best written books but good for a guilty pleasure read :)


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Brain candy reading is always good, Claire.

Why not Rage, Stu? I quite liked Rage.

I couldn't get it on Kindle with it being hard to get after the school massacre

Oooh, good! I hope you enjoy it, David, and thank you :)

Funnily enough, I downloaded Imperfect Strangers and am itching to crack on with it. It's had some excellent reviews.


message 48: by [deleted user] (new)

I've found a new favourite author (one of many!) through kindle unlimited. I couldn't find much by authors that I already knew and this authors name came up in a related search. Melissa Hill

I've already gobbled up Summer in Sorrento and Autumn in Verona, have just started Winter In Venice and have downloaded another longer book to read soon Something You Should Know. I'm really enjoying them; pleasant, light hearted stories set in Italy.

Andrew Lawston (andrewlawston) | 1791 comments I downloaded a book of smoothie recipes, because I'm trying to up my fruit and veg intake and shed a few pounds.

I shan't name it, because the spinach, celery, apple and lime juice concoction I made in good faith this morning was utterly vile.

The last time I saw something that was close to that particular vivid shade of bright green, the dying Malus was puking it on to the floor of Little Hodcombe's church at the end of Peter Davison's 1983 Doctor Who story, The Awakening.

It tasted even worse.


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Wonder if it was the same shade of green as the stuff Jud had to deal with today.
