I'm one of those ingrates! Sorry, it just didn't seem like something you would like.

Here are two more books that I REALLY recommend, but again, it doesn't seem like your taste: Story of a Marriage (Greer), and Secret Scripture (Barry).

Oh well, if we're swapping recommendations, Wolf Hall is really tremendous.

Dom, thanks, and with my usual graciousness, I forgive you - especially as you send me two new recommendations. I'll give them a look when I can.

Thanks, 'DM', you have just reminded me that I bought that as a gift for the Memsahib which she finished some time ago and it's been sitting there waiting for me for weeks - mea culpa!


Ah, too bad that you are going to be so busy reading as Sarah, Ann, and myself were going to stop by for a chat. Well, Ann would stridently, emphatically state her business, Sarah would stumble through what's on her mind, and I, well, I would just sit quietly and watch you drool. I would mention, out of respect for a guest, that you shouldn't ask Ms. Palin what she reads!

We Americans must be harder to cure of our addictions as we take a 12-step program while I note that you British blokes only need 10.

I, too, would be a fan of "Wolf Hall". I started it at a friend's home, but she was only half way through so I ordered it for myself. I couldn't remember for sure if I was thinking of the same book as you might read(as I am what my husband calls a "book or die girl") and have so many that I forget what I have already in the house. So I popped over to Amazon.com to check and see if this was the book that I have waiting for me downstairs and to my surprise here was this interesting bit of information on the page:

ooh, kinda gives you shivers doesn't it?

"Sarah, Ann, and myself were going to stop by for a chat"

I tremble!

Also I know what Mrs. Palin reads: Moose Shoot Mag. I'm trembling again.

As for the book list, I can tell you, Jeanie, that 'Tattooo girl' book gave me the shivers. Try it, it's a corker!

'bookoholism' - anyone know of a ten-point plan

When you find the cure PLEASE let me know.

I'll have so much spare time on my hands, Hank, I'll be sure to let you know!

All you need is a two-point plan. Read Obama's two autobiographies. There's no need to finish them. In fact, there's probably no chance of finishing them.

I think, 'DM', that comes under the heading of 'cruel and unusual punishment'.
