Another week and I haven’t scheduled a post, so you have put up with a pointless off the cuff one. Although there is no guarantee the schedule ones aren’t pointless as well. Anyway, some exciting news from me just finished reading my current book, Erased Boy, I would recommend it, especially if like me you […]Read more "It’s the best time of the year again"
A list of books I’ve read so far this year and what I thought of them.Read more "Books that I’ve read"
This is one of my pet peeves as a reader, when an author doesn’t trust the readers intelligence and must make sure you don’t miss any important plot points. I remember it very clearly in one of Dan Browns books. I can’t remember which one as he is not an author I like to go […]Read more "More useless advice from an unpublished author – plot sign posting"
Well this is not a problem for everyone, but I tend to read a lot of blogs that carry reviews of books. These blogs make the books sound so good I must buy them. I used to make a to read list, but I’ve given up on that as the list is too big. I […]Read more "The problem with following blogs."
I have recently realised I am not reading enough. Normally I read loads of books a year. I had started my usual annual re-read of the Harry Potter Books at the start of the summer and by now I would be finished however I am on book six. I would love to say it’s because […]Read more "Not enough time to read"

I have a confession, I’m a little embarrassed to be publicly admitting it, and I do feel very bad about it. I have not been reading your blogs recently. Well I’ve read a few, but not many. Writing my book has really taken off recently and keeping posting on my own blog takes time. Then […]Read more "Confessions of a blogger"
The other day I had a very strange experience. Like most of you I read a lot; I read great books, good books, mediocre books. I even read down right awful books. I often read a book more than once, I have lost count how many times I have re-read Harry Potter. What I never […]Read more "Giving up on a book"
Well ok they didn’t, that was my son refers to as ‘click bait.’ Like a lot of you I have an ever expanding to read list that grows quicker than I can read them. When I’m pottering in the kitchen I also like to listen to comedy radio shows on the BBC i-player. News quiz […]Read more "Audio books saved my life!"
