I would gad too. My great grandmother had a nice life once she'd ditched her husband but all her daughters were left in financially straitened circumstances.

Can anyone recommend a good book?

Life is for gadding, I have always thought so and always will. The magnitude of gaddery is often under the control of a pecuniary governer, but the gad will always prevail.

Our neighbour over the road was the eldest of thirteen. His name isn't Premier, but he certainly behaves as if it were. He's a nice guy with it though, and an expert on the silver screen.

The nearest book to hand is The Inflamed Mind, a sort of treatise on immunopsychiatry. I haven't read it yet but I think its going to be quite good. Probably not for everyone.

Let me know if it is any good. I'm quite interested in that sort of thing.

Have you read Transcription, by Kate Atkinson? I think you’d like it.

Ricolas - 25 Apr 2019 22:45:39 (#88 of 2009)

I'm reading this, and really enjoying it:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ashes-London-Andrew-Taylor/dp/0008119082

NB don't buy from Amazon obvs.

Sabacious - 25 Apr 2019 22:47:33 (#89 of 2009)

That reminds me I still have a Shardlake that I bought ages ago and haven't got round to reading yet.

I am reading Reacher. You can save reading by just imagining the last one but set in a different mid west town and a different set of knees to be messed up

Tomnoddy - 25 Apr 2019 22:50:09 (#91 of 2009)

Transcription isn't quite up to her usual standard, IMO, but has a nice kick in its tail (tale?)

Ricolas - 25 Apr 2019 22:53:57 (#92 of 2009)

If you are not into multiple joint annihilation, then you might want to reach around the Reacher round, and try something else.

goldfinch - 25 Apr 2019 22:59:09 (#93 of 2009)

I've read half of Transcription but not sure if I want to finish it just at the moment. I will look at yours, Ric. Thanks.

If you read Reacher and the pain thing it might cancel itself out.

I am reading I contain multitudes by Ed Yong. Just started, but fascinated by my internal hordes already.,

HollyGolightly - 26 Apr 2019 07:53:49 (#96 of 2009)

I recently enjoyed The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton, goldfinch. And I have just steamed through Susan Hill’s Simon Serailler series.

Morning! I thought it was meant to rain today? Glorious blue skies instead. I’ll take that.

And Happy Birthday to Ms Skywalker!

Thank you! I have presents and tea and the puppy is eating wrapping paper.

Bodgit - 26 Apr 2019 08:06:45 (#99 of 2009)

Happy birthday!

goldfinch - 26 Apr 2019 08:23:29 (#100 of 2009)

Happy birthday, helens!
