Hi again, my first RBC book was Mother’s Milk by Edward St Aubyn, and it arrived in time for Christmas.
I could only manage 30 pages before giving up (sorry Mr St Aubyn). My wife took over and absolutely loves it! I knew there would be a mix of fiction and non-fiction and I am happy to accept whatever is given. I also know that most men prefer non-fiction, so I am only reverting to type. As an aside, this month, I’ve read the Jensen Button autobiography (in my humble opinion, a page turner!) and have started Corner Seat by Christopher Portway. This one is about railway journeys across Europe in the late 1960s and it’s “slow going”, albeit I’ve completed the first 30 pages and put a bookmark in (that means I will continue it). Interestingly, this book is a withdrawn copy from the Scottish Branch of the Red Cross Hospital Library Service. Imagine the stories it could tell of all of the patients who have handled this book.
Oh, the joys of Second Hand Books.
