Over Christmas I read:
The Silver Linings Play Book by Matthew Quick
Juliet Naked by Nick Hornby
Transition by Ian Banks
Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett
Simon's Cat by Simon Tofield
and I'm now reading The Complaints by Ian Rankin.
I've enjoyed all of them.
Many of them were Christmas presents. I admit I did drop the odd hint, like "I'd like The Complaints for Christmas, please. It's half price on amazon." Some I just bought for myself. Well, it's keeping the publishing industry going, isn't it? What a great excuse.
It's surprising I had time to talk to any of my family. I seem to remember I did speak to one or two of them now and again.
Have you read any of these? I'd love to talk about them to someone else who's read them.
