Library Haul



Yesterday, I actually came back from the library with some books to read. I’ve nearly finished The Girl from the Fiction Department, about Sonia Orwell. Hilary Spurling felt Sonia’s reputation had been besmirched and set out to put the record straight. The Sue Cook I think I’ve seen well reviewed somewhere and Fannie Flagg, well, I’ll give her a try. I only wanted light reading. The Georgette Heyer was a 10p trolley buy and it’s falling apart; the other library reject, by Robert Goddard, is a hardback in excellent condition. Tsk.

From the 'for what it's worth department' :<) -this is what I wrote in my book journal 6 years ago about a FF book:

" Standing In The Rainbow 2002
By Fannie Flagg
Fiction A
I truly enjoyed this book. She is simply, or maybe not so simply, a good writer, who tells a good, believable story. This was a book I looked forward to reading. I couldn't wait to sit down with it every chance I got. The characters are real, for the most part, and lead interesting, kindly lives. The book goes from the mid-1940s through the 1990s. Fiction writing at its
best."

And I did a book report on A Redbird Christmas:

I'd like to read more by her, and will be interested in what you think of the one you got.
Aha, perhaps it was from you that I knew the name. I was surprised to see the book in our library and thought it might be suitable light reading.
