I have just finished reading:

'The Friday Night Knitting Club'

Image

It was the book for our book club - I did enjoy it. I also read a detective book by Peter Robinson - a Detective Banks story and will certainly read another. I also took Mr McGregors Garden by Alan Titchmarsh on holiday - which was an OK girlie read but a little lacking in something!

I did also read 'Under the Bonnet' - author escapes me - which was a nice girlie read. I read the next chocolate book by Carole Matthews - again good but a bit predictable somehow....So not sure what to read next - it is our book club next week - so may not start another book yet as I have a pile of magazines to catch up on.

A FABBY book called 'The boy in the stripped pyjamas' (sorry my spelling is terrible!). It is ACE and heart wrenching. I have also just finished 'A patchwork Planet' by Anne Tyler. I LOVE her books! I can't put them down!

I'm reading a biography of Nikola Tesla, "Tesla, Man out of time".

Fascinating read about one the most brilliant scientists of our time.

Anne Tyler is an american novelist who writes clever contemporary fiction! Easy reading about everyday americans - tends to focus on one person and their relationships and family.....its cleverly written but nice to read.

My ALL time fave is "Dinner at the homesick restaurant" - really worth a read.

Ben Elton's Blind Faith for me, funny as ever & worringly (as with most of his book) you can see it happening in the future

My friend has just lent me the entire Shopaholic series to read, I've only read and Sister so far but that was funny so I'm looking forward to reading them all - I don;t like anything too taxing to read on the train :D

I want to read that knitting book carolyn, I'm currently halfway through a knitting course at a knitting shop in london and they actually have a book club as well, they have just done boy in the striped pajamas. I think I might join it but I resent paying lots of money for new books, I usually get mine from a car boot for 30p :oops:

I'll second 'A Patchwork Planet' by Anne Tyler - fab book. Read it a few years ago now, but I may pull it out to read again having been reminded of it.

I'll also second 'The Friday Night Knitting Club' - another fantastic book.

I'm currently reading "East of the Sun" by Julia Gregson. It really is well written and a thoroughly enjoyable read. Before that I read "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusack. Again, good book, can recommend.

It's interesting to hear what others are reading. I love to sit with a good book.

Thumbs up for Friday Night Knitting Club I enjoyed that one also Divas don't knit is a good one. I am working my way through a series by Debbie Macomber at the moment 'A shop on Blossom Street' also about a knitting shop and the people who come to the classes they hold, they are very light reading but nice and cosy if you know what I mean.

Might have to read some of the knitting ones, I can see it become my new pastime, cause my eyes really aren't coping too well with cross stitch.

This is the shop I learning to knit at, it's brilliant, it's got a licensed bar and everything!
