Congratulations, Karen and thank you for the link.

How very nice to hear your voice, Karen! I didn`t detect any ``nerves`` at all. I am finally finishing the last few pages of Crossing to Safety. It`s a bit too late in the day to leave a comment, but I wanted you to know that I thought it was one of the best written books I`ve read this year. I`m surprised I had never heard of Stegner before. Thanks for another great recommendation!

A most enjoyable radio programme! I will try to catch it again.

I found Testament in our local library (Glasgow); they had several copies as well.


You sounded very easy and relaxed. Well done.


Just listened to the programme and enjoyed it . Thanks for the link.
Started reading Crossing to Safety today and it is a fabulous. Difficult to put down even to write this comment.


I very much enjoyed your contribution to the Book Café and have found this group as a consequence. I'll lurk & learn while reading Alis Hawkins' Testament.

Many thanks for this ingenious & inspirational site.


So glad you enjoyed it, Lisa - it's been a great find!


You're welcome, Sandy!


Isn't it great when a book grabs you like that!

Oooh I have just listened to this and it sounded a fabulous show, was good to put a voice to the blog too!


I enjoyed listening to all of the talk of books and groups. It was great to hear you and the hoovering must have worked because you didn't sound nervous at all. And, really, how could you be- talking about books and cakes and readers.


Karen, how lovely you to hear your voice and you come across so well, I really enjoyed the programme.


Thankyou, everybody. I'm glad the nerves didn't show too much!
