Bookworms: What are you reading at the moment?

John Wyndham excellent, especially his short stories.
As for you, why not call a biography a biography?
Though I must admit, I didn't realise you were that old!

As you probably know most first novels have a strong autobiographical bias...mine is not an exception to the rule

I am however not quite as old as the (Pennine) hills...

My inclines are gentle -they have to be seen to be believed.

Re: Bookworms: What are you reading at the moment?

Just read Twopence to cross the Mersey, Liverpool Miss and By the waters of Liverpool by Helen Forrester about a family torn from an upper middle class life in to absolute poverty in 1930's Liverpool. An autobiographical story, I couldn't put it down. Well worth reading though I don't know if it's still in print.

Re: Bookworms: What are you reading at the moment?

I've read those three Helen Forrister books too...great reads.

We are currently reading 'Forever Amber' in hardback, by Kathleen Winsor. I read it to hubby as our bedtime book before snuggling down for the night. This book is a classic, the first of the boddice-rippers piblished in 1946.

Hubby is reading a paperback Harry Bosch, the LA detective book by Michael Connelly called 'Lost Light', also an audio book by Eric Ambler called 'The Light of Day' which was made into the film 'Topkapi' starring Peter Ustinov. It's about the robbery of a Turkish Museum.
