    I'm now reading The Infinite Sea by Jeffrey A Carver,on my Kindle,the 3rd in his excellent sci-fi series. Ordered The Darkening by Stephen M Irwin,a horror that sounds very promising. Also fancy Life After Life by Kate Atkinson.

    "I Hate Myself and I Want to Die" by Tom Reynolds. For music geeks with a dark sense of humor. In light reading I love this kind of stuff. The second book is "Touch Me, I'm Sick".

    Speaking of, errr, projects (ie. Ph.D), let me know how you get on with these. I've read the Hew Strachan one which is quite good for general information I think. :)

    um lets see - recent finds - a fairly comprehensive collection of George Eliot (thanks Peder for the push), a comprehensive collection of John Buchan (revisiting The 39 Steps), Film Theory and Criticism, a comprehensive collection of John Irving, the martial arts cinema of the diaspora, the minimalist photographer, field guide to mammals of southern africa, and last but not least Balzac and the Chinese Seamstress (which I have already finished - excellent!)

    I am only a few pages in but your "feeling" is spot-on-accurate. Have you read it already?

    nope no idea what it is even about but 'Miss Pettigrew' carries with it connotations of a middle-aged spinster possibly with a small grey dog of uncertain pedigree who is a school teacher or governess. It is one of those names that are a well known trope.

    John Buchan is probably my favourite author- although I actually preferred The Three Hostages and John Macnab to The 39 Steps. Either way, it looks like you have some quality reading ahead of you.

    Just found this. I am familiar with the tale so this should be interesting.

    I bought every book I read and post on here.
    It is my way of supporting the authors for their hard work.
    I only buy paper books, they win out on any other format by virtue of smell and texture
