    Take your time with the getting up to steam, allow yourself a moment or two with your bereavement, before rushing back into the hurly burly of existence, best wishes. On a different note I’m loving those Mini classics.

    If that’s a slow reading month then mine must be snail-paced! So sorry to hear about your Gran. I hope you are doing OK. It looks as though you have some great reading plans for the future. Those Penguin mini classics are SO tempting!

    Sorry to hear about your loss, Stu. My condolences. Take it easy. I’m yet to do my list of African books that can be read for your village reading challenge. I will put that up after you get going on the challenge. I’m jealous of your reading!

    Sorry to hear about your family bereavement, Stu. Best wishes…

    Regarding your reading, eight books is what I would consider a good month. And some great choices. Death and the Penguin really caught my imagination. I now have to check if you reviewed the Amelie Nothomb and the Italo Calvino, because I love both those authors.
