I've finished reading The Woodlanders and am itching to start another book. But which one? I've whittled down my choice to Death's Jest Book by Reginald Hill, because I liked Pictures of Perfection. Or it could be Disgrace by J M Coetzee, or No Saints or Angels by Ivan Klima, both recommended by a friend. Alternatively I could go for Fruit of the Lemon by Andrea Levy, recommended by another friend, currently travelling round the world (at present in New Zealand). Thanks to both of you for the suggestions - I'll get to them all eventually if not now.
Or I could plump for The Lollipop Shoes by Joanne Harris, which I bought on impulse. Or maybe it's time for something completely different, such as Shakespeare, the Biography by Peter Ackroyd because currently we're planning to see Macbeth at Stratford, although the dates are a bit difficult.
D reminds me that I should start reading Wilberforce by John Pollock because our next Book Circle meeting is in a fortnight when we will be discussing this book. It's long and looks very detailed. We chose this book as it's the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade. So maybe I'll read this one next - and one of the others as well.
