Glad you enjoyed so much Jinxie :) I'm lucky my local Tesco does a book swap table thing where you give 50p or whatever for the charity and get one of the books off the table or leave one for somebody else. Reading one atm about man and his dog and his garden (don't know where the garden part of it comes in) but still good to have new books.

Also I clearly got pages of this thread wrong read another one where you read a book you really liked. Sorry!

I gave this 4 stars (really liked it) except it was sad that it was a true story.

I've just finished reading a book called 'A song for tomorrow' by Alice Peterson which was an easy read yet quite inspirational. I recommend this..I would give it a good 4 stars.

This week I read a book called "Into the wild". It's an interesting story about a guy who just gives up his possessions and tries to 'live off the land'. The story is good but the way it is written is quite hard work. 3 stars.

I've just started Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine and I'm about 30 pages in. It has been good reading so far.

I liked the film Into The Wild so tried to read the book but found it hard going and gave up on it.

I liked Eleanor Oliphant.

Will put A Song For Tomorrow on my to read list.

I gave up on Mini and Me, too much hard going for now. Started reading something I wouldn't usually choose but thought it might be nice to read something very lighthearted and cosy.

So now reading: Coming Home To The Comfort Food Cafe - Debbie Johnson.

I gave this 3 stars (liked it). I did like reading it but I don't think I was following what was happening much. There were too many characters and they were sometimes referenced by their first name and sometimes by their surname so I couldn't remember who was who.

Continuing with Coming Home To The Comfort Food Cafe - Debbie Johnson.

Also reading This Is How: Help For The Self - Augusten Burroughs. I'm not really reading it as a self help book but rather because I like Augusten's stuff.

I'm reading the Birthmarked trilogy. Really enjoying it and I'd recommend! (TW for questionable treatment of pregnant women and babies - no abuse - and abortion)

I gave this 4 stars (really liked it) although I found it quite hard to get into at first.
