  1. Why it's a good idea to have a large TBR

    Must admit I have always bought books faster than I read them. Amazon with it's one click buy as certainly made it worse. I still buy from Waterstones but my analogue pile pales beside my digital pile. I just love the option of lots of books to choose from when I finish my current read.
  2. I've downloaded and read the first chapter. Must admit read a review that advised buying sticky notes before reading.
  3. Review of 2018

    At the end of 2018 would love to hear your highs of the year. After much consideration I must give my book of the year to Eleanor Oliphant by Gail Honeyman - a book that appeals to all ages and genders. My favourite TV series was Killing Eve which you can still watch ( voted top by most critics). https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p06kbg8t/killing-eve-series-1-1-nice-face My favourite film was Black Panther and I'm not normally a super hero movie fan. My favourite album was Low - Double Negative. Always loved them but took me awhile

    1. The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert (P) ***1/2
  6. Currently Reading

    The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert. Got past the part where women discover their body and are not ashamed. Strange that 19th century morals are the same today.

  8. what is everyone doing?

    Luna it's apparently Nickel that you are allergic to. Gold jewellery contains it unless its 24 carat and nickel is the metal most people are allergic to. Similar problem with an ear ring years ago. iff it's strange but I prefer Christine & the queens in french. Shame you missed them. 1st December and found out today will be spending Christmas day with my best friend,his wife,his daughter and 4 year old granddaughter and mother in law. Have a sneaking suspicion he wanted a male presence in the house of four females Still bah humbug but maybe not that day

  11. what is everyone doing?

    This week.Constant draws in the world chess championship. England won and doing well in the last test against Sri Lanka.Very interested in the the Costa nominations and Sally Rooney put on the to be read list.Scientists have given a red line on global warming- but nobody will listen. Brexit is still a mess.Have an aversion to this mass compulsion to spend on a Friday. I'm getting a stronger mood of bah bah humbug to the waste and stupidity of Christmas.
  12. What song are you listening to... right NOW?

    Thought the Unthanks were brilliant at this years proms. Had to have another listen
  13. Hello guys, please help me out

    Hi Rooney I had no idea about scissor lifts until your post. Now after using a wonderful tool called Google search I now know a lot more. I think you should contact firms who manufacture/sell them in your area or look for some social media around scissor lifts. Love the connection with books but think your on the wrong forum my friend.
