  1. I sometimes wonder how I can miss so many books enjoyed by others, though perhaps others think the same when they see my lists!

    I need to move away from my usual genre a little more I think!

    1. Oh yes Deb, I think that all the time too. There is never enough time to read all the wonderful books available.

      I do recommend diversifying one’s reading list – I’ve been doing that consciously for a few years now and have found my reading tastes are much broader than I’d ever realised, e.g. contrary to expectations science fiction has grown on me. You never know until you give it a go.

    1. Ooh, Emma I do like the sound of The Beautiful Mystery – mystery + audio can be such a great combination, particularly when you’re stuck in traffic!
