  1. I love Maeve Binchy – have you read Evening Class? That was one of my favorites. I saw The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul in a recent post by Mrs. M and The Perfume Collector looks good too. I love to read – I’ve been so busy that it slipped away from me last year but this year, I plan to change that. Do you enjoy a particular genre?


    • I did read Evening class but it was a fair while ago – good fun seeing how she tells about the lives of the characters and then relates how they all blend together at the classes. You might like to read this
      A Week in Winter is similar in a way – she introduces the character describing their lives and then how they relate during the week of their stay at the hotel. She will be missed!
      I’m a reader of old – anything and everything, no special likes (genres), often take shelf picks home from the library and find new authors that way. Also check blogger’s lists – found Jane Gardam and Micheal Frayn that way. Being retired with no defined timetable to keep to our hot summers mean I can sit and do nothing and I sit and do nothing if its cold and wet during the winter 🙂
      Nice to talk to you Pamela
