Thank you to those of you who have voted. The winner of the People’s choice for the July book club is….drum roll please:
‘The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry’ by Gabrielle Zevin.
From what I have already heard this is an excellent choice. I have put a brief summary and link to the book on Amazon under The Monthly Book Club page, so please go there for further details.
In other news I am hoping to add a lot more content to the site over the coming weeks and to recruit some more followers. If you know of any book lovers, I would be most grateful if you would tell them about the site and encourage them to share their thoughts.
I will be attending The West Cork Literary Festival in July and will let you all know how I get on there, as well as more book reviews and recommendations. I am desperately trying to find a bit more time to read, so if any of you have any tips for stealing some reading time, perhaps you could share your thoughts. Do you read in chunks of time? Or do you read every night, or perhaps you travel by public transport and you have time to read then? How much do you read? I am struggling to read more than one book a month at present, which really isn’t enough. I know I could read more. I am torn between time I want to use for reading and the time I use to write. Anyway, it’s all good! Oh, and if you haven’t finished reading (or started) ‘H is for Hawk’ by Helen Macdonald, which was June’s book club choice, you still have plenty of time. I won’t be putting up my review until the last week of June. If you have read it feel free to share your thoughts anytime. That’s all for now. Happy Reading!
