Finished a very good book of essays by Zadie Smith, called Changing My Mind, 2009. A real mixed bag of things, literary essays, movie reviews, going to the Oscars...Good book.

And finished Solar by Ian McEwan and really liked it. Have not liked many of his other books but I did really like this one. Such a scathing sense of humour.

Started a couple of new books, one on my iPad - a different kind of reading. The Help, by Kathryn Stockett, 2009. It's good. And I'm listening to the latest Maisie Dobbs mystery in the car, The Mapping Of Love And Death by Jacqueline Winspear, 2010. It's enjoyable too.

good book

have yet to get the camera out to photo the latest knitting...
but just finished listening to Solar by Ian McEwan and thought it was a great book. Funny, in a very cutting and smart way. And the main character is so despicable but believable.
