You should see the extent of my 'to read' shelf! I just can't help myself when it comes to books .

I'm happy with any of those, although I will have to purchase whichever we choose .

I've been following the Richard and Judy reviews in their Book club. A book they mentioned sounded brilliant, 'Mr Pip'. Here's a bit about the book, sounded amazing to me.

'You cannot pretend to read a book. Your eyes will give you away. So will your breathing. A person entranced by a book simply forgets to breathe. The house can catch alight and a reader deep in a book will not look up until the wallpaper is in flames.' Bougainville. 1991. A small village on a lush tropical island in the South Pacific. Eighty-six days have passed since Matilda's last day of school as, quietly, war is encroaching from the other end of the island. When the villagers' safe, predictable lives come to a halt, Bougainville's children are surprised to find the island's only white man, a recluse, re-opening the school. Pop Eye, aka Mr Watts, explains he will introduce the children to Mr Dickens. Matilda and the others think a foreigner is coming to the island and prepare a list of much needed items. They are shocked to discover their acquaintance with Mr Dickens will be through Mr Watts' inspiring reading of Great Expectations. But on an island at war, the power of fiction has dangerous consequences. Imagination and beliefs are challenged by guns. Mister Pip is an unforgettable tale of survival by story; a dazzling piece of writing that lives long in the mind after the last page is finished.


LB, i've read Angels but would consider the others, what are they about?
Claire, i don't tend to read murder mystery/scary stuff, spooks me too much, lol!

what about using your local library? Im all for supporting them as there is so many talks about closures here I would just hate it if we lost ours, I have stopped buying books (had far too many and gave them all to the library) and just make sure that we go regularly.

Let me know what book you decide and I will try and order it!
