"Delicious" by Ruth Reichl, is an interesting and great read which you do not have to be a "foodie" to enjoy. I'd rate it at 9 out of 10. It's about a woman who works at a magazine which publishes recipes and guarantees their recipes or else they ...

Someone called Tom Holland has just been on the radio; I’d not heard of him, but apparently he’s quite famous. His new book might be on my Desired list: [hachette.com.au] He was a good and knowledgeable speaker.

A couple days ago I read Stephen king's book "The Institute". I think it has become my favorite of his books that involve the supernatural. He is a writer who writes very well, but it is hard for me to suspend disbelief enough for me to buy into ...

Just finished Terry Pratchett’s The Wintersmith. It is meant to be a children’s book, but there are the usual nuanced Pratchett comments that would pass over a kid’s head, so I’d say it’s fun for a light read. The witches are fun and ...

Hi, My favourite genre is sci fi, but I’ve not read any of it for a while. I’ve read everything by Asimov in my time. I’m currently reading a children’s disc world book by Terry Pratchett. I’m enjoying it because it mimics my life- ...
