A great book


Thought I'd let you know about a great book that Radio 4 will be having as their book for Bookclub. The programme format is the audience will have the book and the author, John Irving, is there to answer them. I can't begin to tell you what a great book it is. I've always found that John Irving books always make me laugh, when I know I shouldn't and always have surprises in them. This one is so funny in places but so moving in others. If you do get time to read it - please do. I can promise it will stay with you.
I have finally got round to making some things for Christmas - but I'm sure you'll appreciate that I won't be able to share these with you until Christmas.
Luckily I've got a sewing day tomorrow in a neighbouring village hall - so I've got a list of things I want to crack on with.
If you're in the UK take care this weekend as it sounds like we're going to have some rather bad weather.
Take care.

Ahhh, that IS a really great book. In fact, I remember searching the internet years ago, and I found a forum where people discusses their "One Book" -- the one book that was the most significant to them. The one they'd take with them to a desert island. I was surprised at how many people listed A Prayer for Owen Meany!
