Time to Relax!

Now the children are (hopefully) settled back at school, we all deserve a bit of relaxation time to recover from the six weeks school holidays! So which books do you read to help you relax? What would you recommend to other people?

Classic Books

Glancing through our recommended selection of books, I nopticed that a great many "classic" books are listed there. These are books to which one or more reviewers have awarded 5 stars. Obviously classic books are still a significant part of reading amongst our reviewers. Do you have a favourite book which you consider to be a "classic"? Please share these with us below.

Bookgroup Books

I blogged recently on the suggestions I have put forward for next years choices list for our bookgroup. It would be great if other people could add titles that they have used in their bookgroup or feel would make a good choice for a bookgroup book.

Summer Reading

The summer is here & (hopefully) we will all get a chance to spend some time reading. Maybe on holiday by the pool or at home in our own gardens. So what do you plan to read for your summer holidays? Please share with us below books which you feel people may enjoy during their summer break.

Must Read Children's Books

The school holidays have now arrived! There are many things for children to do in the holidays not least of which is to catch up on some reading. It would be wonderful if people could share their suggestions of "must read" books for children.

Animal Stories

Last week Bill reviewsed the classic animal book, White Fang by Jack London. This led me to think about other books where the main storyline concerns an animal or animals. It would be great if people could share books which they enjoyed in which animals play an important part.


Continuing on from last week's theme of sports, this week's theme is Time. A dubious connection....possibly! In many sports, time is vital be it a measurement of how long the game lasts or a measurement of speed. Please list below any books whose title has a connection with time - be it a specific time or a form of measuring time - be inventive!


Wimbledon fortnight is upon us, the Euros are coming to a climax & the Olympics are fast approaching so the time has come for a sports theme. This week we are looking for titles of books which include the name of a sport, sports equipment or are in some way linked with sport.

Jobs in Books

Following on from Anne's blog concerning the jobs (or not) of characters in books, I have written a blog which contains some of my favourite books which centre around a specific profession. Please feel free to add below your suggestions of similar books which you feel people may enjoy. Please feel free to include both fiction & non-fiction.

Books From Other Cultures

I have recently written a blog where I have shared books which I have enjoyed which provide an insight into cultures other than my own. Please add books which you feel others may enjoy that provide a glimpse of another culture.


Following on from last week's Jubilee theme, this week's theme is London. So please add to the list any books about London, either fact or fiction. Perhaps they provide us with an insight to the history of our capital city or a fictional idea of London in the future or as a fantasy city. Please be inventive & share with us those unusual & interesting books on London.

Precious Gems

With the Diamond Jubilee weekend fast approaching it seems right to have a theme connected with this. So, precious gems it is. Any book whose title includes the name of a precious gem in it. Ifd you can name some with diamonds then so much the better!
