I'm reading Love is Blind right now! I'm enjoying all the technical details about pianos. Warning! I had to stop watching the video clip because it contains spoilers for events I haven't read about yet. callmemadam

callmemadam writes: I second Mr C's recommendation! It was the first book by Richard Holmes which I read. Also of course his wonderful biography of Coleridge and a curious little book called Dr Johnson and Mr Savage. He's brilliant.

callmemadam writes: Thank you for this. I've enjoyed all the Grantchester novels so I have to read the prequel. The 'lose the religion' instruction is interesting as it's one of the things I like about the books and miss in the TV series, enjoyable though that is. The St Matthew Passion would convert anyone, I think!

callmemadam here. I'm reading A Beautiful Game by Mark Nicholas, which is only of interest to cricket lovers. In tandem, the most recent No.1 Ladies Detective Agency book. Perhaps your interest in cattle has been inspired by Mma Ramotswe?

callmemadam writes: I can recommend The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge. My daughter lent it to me, showing that if a children's books is good, all ages can enjoy it. Didn't C S Lewis say that a children's book which could not be enjoyed by adults was not a good book? Thanks for the tip about A Skinful of Shadows. I'll put it on my list.
