  1. Notre Dame

    Millions of euros/dollars pledged towards the costs involved. What a very sad sight it was.
  2. Currently Reading

    First time for me to read a Japanese crime writer - 'Malice' by Keigo Higashino. Engagingly different.
  3. The Dry

    One of the few books that I've perservered with this year. Three members of the same family are murdered in a small town in a drought -ridden area a five hour drive from Melbourne.. From Melbourne Aaron Falk arrives for the funeral as one of the victims was a childhood friend. Falk is also a policrman. Events and memories from his youth there are forefronted and complicate his unofficial help with the local police. I found it engrossing.

    An interesting development last night. with the PM talking to Corbyn today. The far right people in the Commons must be sh...ing themseles. Who knows, it might work.

  8. I am half-way through this novel, an example of the hatd-boiled type of American crime fiction of the 1920s and 30s. It is narrated by the Continental Op, an operative of a detective agency. who certainly has his work cut out in mid-Wesr town he is sent to where corruption is rife and atrocities abound. It is almost like reading in a foreign language at times so I am struggling with the book at present.. Raymond Chandler's novels arr more accessible for me.

    Binker, I will read the book you mention (The Architect's Apprentice) as I too am off to Istanbul but not until June.. Hugely looking forward.
  14. Determined to get out more we went to see The Favourite, then Stan and Ollie, and lastly Mary Queen of Scots. The latter was disappointing.
  15. Rest in Peace

    I never saw Albert Finney on stage but from 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning' onwards I always looked out for a movie that he appeard in. It was the only time i was trendy, making a beeline for the early 60s new wave cinema.
