Hi all, anyone read a really cool book recently that you would recommend or would like to tell us about? Me, I love Jilly Cooper, she's a tonic! I enjoy Kathy Reichs' novels and I love James Herriot and Deric Longden's animal stories. If I have to single out a novel I'd say Rani Manicka's "The Rice Mother" was one of the nicest books I've ever read. It was simply awesome. Beautifully written. "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho is inspiring and his "Veronica Decides to Die" was amazing. I've read 1000's of books over the years, but these I've mentioned here stand out for me. Tell me about your favorites. I'm always looking for more!
