      Local libraries are getting more into the swing of this now, when I did have time to read I got myself a Kindle and vowed only to use the freebies, some have been good some not so good but in the main ok, boy was I narked when I downloaded one on a train and had to pay Β£1.75.....that killed my pig!

          Yes, I listen to an audiobook every morning whilst waiting for my carers to arrive, a lovely, luxurious way to start my day, and all borrowed from my library πŸ‘

          My favourite book so far this year is Where the Crawdads Sing, followed by American Dirt.

          Has anybody any recommendentations? xx

            Adele Parks was recommended to me as an author. So I've borrowed 2 'Just my Luck' & 'Lies Lies Lies' about to start so not sure yet. Will let you know.
            I like anything by Kathy Reichs 'The Bone Code' is on my list.
            I also have read a lot of the Jack Reacher books by Lee Childs. I've liked them all for a bit of action.
            I like the Wolf Hall trilogy too...Hilary Mantel
            Most recently read 'Body Language' by AK Turner...which I liked as was a page turner so a quick read.

            Ellie American dirt....sounds interesting πŸ‘€πŸ‘

            My only issue is audio books make me fall asleep....like being read to as a child I guess....great for anxietyπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’‹

              I loved where the Crawdads sing. .. made me cry !
              I also enjoyed the giver of stars. I usually find Jojo Moyes a little cheesy, although enjoyable but I loved the idea of giving children the gift of reading.
              I enjoy Adele Parks too !

              Maybe reading too late at night is stopping me joining the early riser club ! Thanks for starting the thread Linda x

                Me too Debbie, which is very unusual for me, I just thought the book was so well written. xx

                  I will read that one thanks for recommending. Where the Crawdads Sing will be on my list. πŸ‘

                  Dare I say we could choose an audio book to all read like a shhhhhhhh bookclub πŸ€” 🀷

                  That's if there would be enough interest....ppl may be too busy etc etc
