    Completely off topic, I know, but I feel we are all in need of a ‘collective hug!’

    So…….Para mi…..

    My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk.

    The novel is set in Istanbul in 1590’s and is a thrilling murder mystery. And a ‘stunning meditation on love, artistic devotion and the tensions between East and West’

    (Actually, in all truth I don’t understand a word of it, but my friends are really impressed when I tell them what I am reading and it makes me sound quite intellectual! ) 😀

    I’m impressed too Maximus. I’ll never question my husbands (yawn) reading choices again! 😉 They are positively “modern” by comparison! (1800’s)

    I hope the “group hug” is invitation only. 😆

    I have just read “The Girls” which was left by a friend. When I saw it my first thought was to bin it. It is the story of Siamese twins who could not be separated but lived to be adults. Perhaps one for the wimmin 😉 A real good read.

    Now reading Too Close to Home, a thriller by Linwood Barclay, seems ok but early days.

    I like (some) autobiographies, last month read Madeleine Allbright. Most of my books come from the charity shops on the coast.

    Is anyone into family history ❓ 😆

    not reading much at the moment. My small business and family life (two teenagers!) and my fight to get my life savings back from Spain leave me to tired by the end of the day. Last book I read this year was ‘Salmon fishing in the yemen’ by Paul Torday. a really good read, very amusing and thought provoking and a lovely attack on government spin.

    I can’t help thinking that it must be a very very short read
    😀 😀

    It consists of one sentence. There are no laws in Spain that are adhered to…except the one stating you must only drive in shoes with a back to them!!

    perhaps it should be re-named ”you and the flip-flop in Spain”

    The True Story of “THE BILDERBERG GROUP” by Daniel Estulin

    and

    “THE UNSEEN HAND” by A. Ralph Epperson
    (An Introduction to the Conspiratorial View of History)

    Both books are absolute eyeopeners.

    I also recommend “CROSSING THE RUBICON” by Michael C. Ruppert.
    (The decline of the American Empire at the end of the age of oil).
    There’s a great piece in it dedicated to 9/11 which at the very least will get your brain whirring as to the truth of what really happened that day.

    I also love Winnie-the-Pooh books, re-reading them all over again to my Godson. 😀

    You can’t mention winnie-the-pooh books these days. You’ll get arrested by the ‘Political correction’ Nazi’s. Those books should be burnt along with The Famous 5. 🙄
