I have just finished Liz Byrski's   Food, Sex and Money.  A GF lent it to me on Tuesday.  I really enjoyed it.

Amanda I found a few on the list I wanted to read but I had already read them. There were another few but maybe books.

Thanks Bedlam, I just downloaded Family Secrets by Liz Bryski. I had  not read one of hers lately until you reminded me.

I must say I did enjoy reading The Escape by David Baldacci, looking forward to the next one

I've just started reading The Rosie Project again before getting the sequel.  It is such a gem of a book and so hard to put down I tend to forget that I have got to go to work, make dinner, etc.

I've also started reading again but at this stage I'm just borrowing books from the Morpeth library for now.

Yes, very glad Gert, I had often wondered what had happened to him.

It was driving me nuts not knowing Emme.

Sounds like me Marina, I love a great book but have no discipline, nothing else gets done!  I loved the Rosie project.

Sound like I might have to get the Rosie project when I' m finished this one.  I also get engrossed and nothing gets done until I've finished the book.   Judy I down loaded this one from the library, great stuff e'books from the library just do it from the comfey chair in the lounge.

Just finished The Girl She Left Behind. I enjoyed it, but towards the end it started to be less so in my eyes as it went a bit cheesy. It went from being a great book to a good book.

I've just downloaded the free Kindle app for androids and had to look at this thread to see what to read first. Looks like Food, Sex and Money and The Rosie Project. Off to get them now.  :D

I loved the Rosie Project and have just finished reading The Rosie Effect which I really enjoyed but not quite as much as the first one.
