Thursday Threads - What are you reading?

Well, July has been a busy month in my household. We had a staycation and spent sometime visiting a few National Trust properties including the holiday home of the author, Agatha Christie.

Called Greenways and now owned by the National Trust the house is only about 15 miles from where I live. The last 6 weeks or so the south west of England (and most of the Country) has had some fantastic weather so getting out and about appeared on many personal agendas.

So I have done a lot less reading that normal.Coupled with that and a failing (exhausted and worn out) laptop, which was replaced over the weekend I am getting use to Windows 8.

I am currently between books and have a few book reviews to share as soon as I can.

So whilst I select my next read, what are you all reading?


  1. Lady of the Butterflies by Fiona Mountain. It's a wonderful novel set in seventeenth century England, which is a time period I haven't read much about, and it focuses on the life of Eleanor Glanville. I highly recommend it!

  2. In the non-fiction column I am reading " Quiet" by Susan Cain
    in the fiction arena I am reading the not-to-be-missed, the very delightful ,"Sisterhood" by Helen Bryan.

  3. I am listening to Persuasion by Jane Austen and reading India Black and the Shadows of Anarchy by Carol K Carr - so much fun!
