There's a space just now in the 'Current reading' list over there on the left as while I'm still enjoying Monty Don who is perfect for a slow page or two before sleep, I have no novel on the go because I've been waiting for this one to turn up (to meet a review deadline) and due to the postal strikes it still hasn't arrived. I can't pick up anything else meanwhile - if you see what I mean.
But looking ahead a bit, it will soon be time to choose something for the Book Group to read over the end of the year to talk about in January. Our November and December books are here, but what shall we do next? I have a master list of suggested titles and things I've seen here and there which look as though they'd suit, so there's plenty to choose from, but I was thinking we might do something like a Wilkie Collins or a Dorothy L. Sayers (we haven't had detective fiction for a while) or maybe Raymond Chandler. What do you think?
Later: and on a different topic, have you read Amanda Craig's post on literary festivals from the author's point of view? Quite an eye-opener!
