Half way through "Dominion" by C J Sansom.  What happened when Germany won the second World War, frightening but a good read.

I'm working my way through a couple of Clive Cusslers.

Hmm, I bet you are...  &shake&

I've nearly finished Lovers and newcomers by Rosie Thomas and quite enjoyed it

Reading 'Moon' by James Herbert.

Just read 'Iris and Ruby' by Rosie Thomas and also by her 'The Potter's House.' Iris and Ruby was excellent, but I thought the end of 'The Potter's House was strange !

Have noticed copies of' 50 Shades of Grey' are creeping into the charity shops. My opinion? a load of hype, no proper story.

Nemesis - I agree with you about 50 Shades - I borrowed it but gave it back to its owner after a few day!!  Must try Iris and Ruby though

Iris and Ruby--the descriptions of Cairo are really good-- the only thing is the story is told from two different time lines.
Did you try either of the other 'Shades' books? I didn't-- thought the first was bad enough, but my daughter read all 3 simply because she had got them and said all 3 were as bad !

Mrs Fester has read all the 50 shades books, and was singularly unimpressed.

I left her to it, but once I sneaked a peek into what in those books, I couldn't help thinking...

If she caught ME reading stuff like that, I would be labelled 'Percy Filth' and spend the rest of my life in the spare bedroom.

I have just read and enjoyed "She left me the gun" by Emma Brockes.  Its about a woman returning to South Africa to discover her family history.  I've also read "The silent tide" by Racel Hore and found that really good.

I have just finished reading a book which I think Cambrian recommended to me some time ago. It is called Your Obedient Servant by George Hiller and it is a history of the land agents, stewards and owners of the Mostyn Estate.
There is an interesting letter from the architect and land agent George Humphreys to the 4th Lord Mostyn in which he describes his vision and hopes for Llandudno.
Some rather telling comments in it now we know what has happened since.
Here are two pages of the letter which I hope it is okay to post and hope that it is readable from the photo. The letter continues with paragraphs about Conference Rooms, Bodafon and Civic Centre.

The promenade continues,
......of powerful electric lamps were placed on the sea side, for by lighting up the pebbled beach and sands at night, the whole town front would look very much more important, and be more attractive.
B) The day will come, I hope, when we shall have bold pieces of sculpture on the Promenade, at the end of each street, thus giving points of interest at the ends of Lloyd Street, Clonmel Street, Vaughan Street etc. The War Memorial forms such a feature at Gloddaeth Street.
