*note to self: read shorter books on a work night*

I managed to finish The Broken Window and I can recommend it as an exciting crime thriller with lots of twists and turns in the classic Deaver manner. Consistent characterisation as well of the regulars. If you haven't read any of the Lincoln Rhyme series, then start with The Bone Collector to follow the characters as they develop.

Mr F on his charity shop trawl yesterday managed to pick up the only one of the Myron Bolitar series by Harlan Coben which I haven't read ... but with outrageous selfishness he has bagged it himself! I will have to wait but that's okay as I don't really want to get to the end of this series ...

In other news, our dishwasher has broken down. Honestly, you pay £20 for a second-hand dishwasher and three years later ... ! Many complaints were heard last night as I was forced to go back to washing dishes by hand, and this will undoubtedly eat into my reading time, grrr.

Will probably start on another Lucia tonight. It's ONE of number one son's hockey practices tonight, so I will need something to keep me amused while waiting anyway.


  1. Another location to visit at some point Hay-On-Wye a paradise for book lovers, nearly eary shop is a book shop

  2. Thanks, excellent tip which I will add to my list!

  3. I wanted to go the book festival there but had to work grrr wages/bills most unfair

  4. I know, life can be most unreasonable, and no point in going without oodles to spend!
