Elizabeth and Elizabeth by Sue Williams. Very interesting, an account of early NSW. Quite well written.

I may have to check this out. I'm reading a book by Dave Warner..not the cricketer. I've read a couple of his but this one isnt as good as the others.

Canít believe this thread is still going. Really chuffed!
Reading the silence of the girls by Pat barker, partly to see if itís suitable as a present for a family member and because I studied Greek literature at school.
Will look back when more time for recommendations. Xx

I have been reading Richard Osman's Thursday Murder Club books.  'Who dun its' are not my usual genre, but I am really enjoying these. 

Also just finished Kevin Kwan's Lies and Weddings, another good light read.
Marina from Melbourne and Guildford
I can resist everything except temptation - Oscar Wilde.

My next book for Book Club is The Bee Keeper of Aleppo. Usually I read immediately I get the book but this time I will read just prior to meeting. Most of my reading is through Kobo, itís a book shop on line. I pay $15 a month and can select from thousands of titles. Not just novels. They have lots of good recently published recipe books.i check them out on line but do prefer hard copies. I read between 3 and 6 novels a week. Last week I reread Jane Austenís Persuasion. Itís my favourite of all her novels.

Gosh Chookie thatís a lot of bookís per week,amazing. Is Kobo like an e-reader ? Thatís a great deal compared to Audible books that you get a credit ( a free audio book each month ) . My goal each month use to be two audio and two hard copy per month Ö but not for awhile now .

I read that for Bookclub too Chookie. From memory it wasnít too bad. I aim to read about a book a week or so, but I donít always achieve it. Then other weeks I do a couple.
