Something to read………..

I have had a book on my bedside table for about 2 months, and apart from a couple of challenges requiring certain pages, lines, and words in books currently being read, I haven’t opened it.
Being a bit over-blogged and fed up with Sudoku, I began to read The Night Book by Richard Madeley Sunday night.

He’s been married to Judy Finnigan since 1986 and together they used to present a couple of morning TV programmes.
This is his fourth book and I’ve read nothing by him before. To be honest, the only reason I picked it up was because I needed a third for my fiver and literally nothing else appealed.
To be equally honest, the other two, which I have read, were dire and will be finding their way to the charity shop when I have a full bag of various donations.
Maybe that was why I wasn’t keen to start this one.

Based in the time of the hot summer of 1976 (which I remember so well as I was in a caravan for two weeks with the fiance-ex-husband-to-be) I’ve only read three chapters plus the prologue, and so far it’s held my interest.
The chapters are relatively short, which I like for a night time read and I read some more last night. I’ve got darts tonight but want to finish it asap as I am expecting delivery of two books ordered from Amazon, one by an author I have always liked and the other a debut novel I liked the sound of. I don’t like to leave a book unfinished (unless it is total crap and then I won’t finish it!) before I start another.

Reviews will follow in due course.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I am very interested to read your thoughts here. Please let us know what you think of the rest of the book

    • Are you reading it, or about to? I read a lot last night.

        No I am not reading it, or about to. I am interested to know how Ruchsrd writes because I used to watch them a lot and he was pretty witty. They made a goid pair in my opinion. But I am blind now, so can’t read ordinary boojs. Although if it is in Kindle I can put it on my iPad.

      • His style is easy to read in this, and as one of the main characters is a news reporter, obviouly there is a lot about what goes on behind the scenes and before we see the broadcasts. I’m enjoying it so far, and hopefully will have finished it in a few days.
