That's what I was just going to ask you! Since I retired from teaching on January 1, I don't have to go back to school next week!!! :D

Currently reading The Stars Are Fire by Anita Shreve, recommended to me by a friend. So far, so good!

Last night I started "Ashes of London" by Andrew Taylor, by a spooky coincidence on the same day that the fire of London started ie 2nd September. How's that for a bit of serendipity?

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did, Madeleine. I'm a big fan of Andrew Taylor's books.

Yes I like them too. It's a bit gruesome so far - the poor old servant! :o

I think it went up in smoke! :lol:
I'm still reading The Boy Who Wanted Wings. It's competently written, but so much is happening right now (dh just retired, and we're getting through the mountains of paperwork) I just can't seem to get my head into anything new. So I'm re-reading familiar things on my kindle.
my facebook posts https://www.facebook.com/emilylaurencotton are public, generally things I find amusing.
my passions: fair trade, ending slavery, and justice.

I'm just about to start another book I have to review, The Soprano by Sarah England, a supernatural thriller.
