Wonderful Wordy Wednesday

Both the books on the bottom of the piles. I didn't get through them. I started both and I seemed liked I was reading about stuff that I knew from other sources. Front Row at the Trump show was more of the same about The Donald, The Red and the Blue about politics in the 1990's and the beginnings of hyper partisan politics we have now. I think I have hit my limit on current political books for a while.

A Fatal Footnote third book in a series. American author hanging out in small town England.

A Wee Christmas Homicide Scottish mystery set in Maine

Shoulder Season fictional account of a girl from a small town in Wisconsin who gets a job as a Playboy bunny back when their was a Playboy Club in Lake Geneva Wisconsin. Interesting to read as the places the author refers to are real.

Wait for It bit of a romance novel but not so cute that it turned me off. Plus there was enough intrigue as to the motivation behind some of the characters.

Mrs Pargeter's Principle next to last book of the series.

Broker, Trader, Lawyer Spy book on corporate spying, some of the history of finding out secrets when others don't want it that to come out.

An Ugly Truth interesting book on FaceBook and Mark Zuckerberg. How they say one thing, but really want to do just the opposite. Yes we will behave, but we really don't want to!

 Megan from Sydney, if you are looking for more books to read ask your librarian. Tell them what authors you like, the genre(s) you like to read and ask for suggestions. I used to read mostly non-fiction, switching more to fiction since I retired. I am open to finding new authors and at least trying something. You never know what you might find.


Yep, and Ducky likes to sit on me and impede my view of my book or computer. I love him anyway. 

Happy reading.


  1. We agree that the cat/book issue is a slightly delicate one as they do tend to impede one's reading.

    I like to read fiction by authors other than North American, British, Australian etc who write in English. I find their stories are often more interesting views into people's lives. One of my all-time favourite books is Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance.

  2. Other than book groups on FB, I've found a lot of books on Goodreads.
    If there is a book that I like, Goodreads allows you to search for more books like it, or books written by that author.
    One can go down a real wormhole, and the amount of books on my 'to be read' list grows daily.

  3. I agree that you need to give children boos that they enjoy. I loved reading from a very early age but a great aunt gave me a book for my 5th birthday. I can still remember my disappointment when I opened it and the print was so tiny, far smaller than is normal. It was probably a very good book* but it completely put me off it.
    *The Children of The New Forest. I think it ptobably would have suited better when I was 10-12 years old.

  4. I did leave a comment but it disappeared, maybe into spam.

  5. ....she also needs a cat!!!!!! yesh!!!

  6. Abibliophobia - yep, I've got it.

    Sydney, Australia

  7. Mark of Mark's Mews - I especially loved the next-to-last image. Mom taught me to read at an early age and it has helped me all my days since then.


Don't be shy, we loves to hear your meows and mews.
