Friday 5, books, books, books....


I've just returned from a meeting in Cambridge so I'm posting this late here in the UK (it is 3:45pm).. because I took the opportunity of a free afternoon in Cambridge's wonderful book shops... I only bought a few- and they were on sale- very restrained for me!!!


So with my head full of books I've seen and a long wish list in my mind, I bring you a Friday Five on books!!!


1. Fiction what kind, detective novels, historical stuff, thrillers, romance????


2. When you get a really good book do you read it all in one chunk or savour it slowly?


3. Is there a book you keep returning to and why?


4. Apart from the Bible which non-fiction book has influenced you the most?


5. Describe a perfect place to read. ( could be anywhere!!!)

As always, let us know in comments if you play. Even better, get in the habit of posting a direct link to your blog entry in your comment, using the following formulation:
<a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a>

    Best lookin' toes for miles around... we ain't had time to post about no books...yet.

  32. Something must be in the air. As I tucked my oldest (Crash Kid) into bed tonight, he mused that he hated being caught with spare time and no book to read. I told him that I just wrote about this, and how I'd been caught in the ER with him and NO book.
