I've just finished No Fond Return of Love and it was fabulous!


This does look like a nice mix of reading. I rather like the handbag pictured.:) This is an interesting idea. I've never thought about what I wear in this way. I just buy what I like. Hmmm, wonder what I've been conveying to the world by my choices? Speaking of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency -- there's a series based on the books coming on soon here in the U.S. I've seen a trailer for it, and it looks very well done. I can't wait to see it.


I just read No Fond Return of Love! I liked the writing more than the story, to be truthful. Love that modern cover!


Joan Bakewell was on Open Book yesterday talking about her book; it's on Listen Again. I loved Linda Grant's The Clothes on Their Backs. This new non-fiction book was slated by Lynn Barber so I'll be interested to know how you get on with it. Like you I have the new McCall Smith waiting, goody, goody!

I havent read any Barbara Pym, I have one but it remains untouched should I be opening it up immediately? Do let me know.

I would like to read the Joan Bakewell book... I am listening to her now on Listen Again so thanks Barbara!

I have the Joan Bakewell on order from Amazon. I thought it would've arrived by now. By coincidence I was looking at my four Barbara Pyms today, but for another reason (I wanted to check out the two chaps responsible for her renaissance - Lord David Cecil and Philip Larkin) but will try and remember to read her before too long ...

Strange, but true, I have also been re-visiting No Fond Return of Love this week and have really enjoyed it. As I've been reading along, AMS's Isabel Dalhousie has come to mind. Perhaps she and Dulcie Mainwaring are kindred spirits...
