Hi - I've just found your blog, and having just read the brief description of The Debt to Pleasure, you've definitely piqued my interest.
I would love to join your read along group and will try and obtain a copy of the book.


This does look wonderful doesn't it. I rescued a copy from the discard bin at the library last year (lucky me) and will make note of the date.

I've been meaning to read this for ages. Looking forward very much to April 24th.


Excellent, Jill!

Oh dear,

I read this book a few years ago and don't remember much about it except that I didn't like it. I gave it just a two-star rating on Goodreads. HOWEVER, I will re-read it with an open mind. Now I just have to find it.

My book group is reading this in a couple of month's time, so I might be able to join in!


What a spooky coincidence! At exactly the same moment that I opened Cornflower Books and was noting what we were reading for April, the daily book program started on the radio with the host introducing an interview with John Lanchester (whom I have never read)and referred to THE DEBT TO PLEASURE. And this is in Australia! I am destined to read this book...and no doubt enjoy it. Thank you Cornflower.


I just put a hold on this book with the library. It sounds very interesting. Might join in.


It does sound rather promising, but oh dear, I must stop buying books (too late in this case...)


My daughter told me about this book last year, but I never searched it out. Now I must find it.
