Thirteen books read during August. I have been on holiday from work the whole month and so that is why it is a little higher than usual. 8 of them read on kindle, but only 2 non fiction. I am still not wanting to read non fiction very much - and when it comes to books - if I really don't fancy reading it - I often don't.

Some excellent reads this month, and also a nice variety. Hard to pick just 3 or 4 for special mention but...

1. Last Train to Liguria - Christine Dwyer Hickey - for sheer readability.

2 The Ballad and the Source - Rosamond Lehmann - I love Rosamond Lehmann and this complex ambitious novel is a work of some brilliance.

3 White Ladies - Francis Brett Young - a fabulous old fashioned read, by a sadly forgotten out of print Black Country author.

4 The Misses Mallet - E H Young - recently discovered this 1920's/1930's author and have become a huge fan.
