I've just been told by the lovely DJ Kirkby that I'm a winner in her competition, and the prize is a copy of this book (love the cover) by Nik Jones. So, once I've received my copy (can't wait) I shall read it toute suite and review it here.
I'll soon be off on my travels and the most important thing I have to concentrate on packing, apart from tickets and passport of course, are books. Now, when you have teetering tbr piles like I do, it's difficult to make a choice of only five or six.
"Five or six?" said R, when I bravely told him how many I'll be taking. "Is that all?"
"I'll be fine," I assured him. "There are shops where we're going, so I can always buy more."
Apparently, he was being sarcastic.
I've just started reading this book, and I'm loving it. I met Debby Holt at the recent RNA Awards Luncheon. She was so friendly and fun that afterwards, as I was waiting to catch the Gatwick Express, I tottered into the nearly WH Smith and bought a copy of this book. I've since realized that I also have another of hers, Annie May's Black Book in my tbr pile and will no doubt be reading that one soon too.
