This week’s questions are brought to you by Nicki.
- Biographies and autobiographies—do you read them? Yes, occasionally.
- If so, whose life story has inspired you most and why? Florence Nightingale – this is a biography I read when I was 7. Today, I read trashy biogs which are not at all inspiring!!
- If not, why not? Mostly I like to read fiction (when I do read!) But a trashy biography (Posh Spice, Paris Hilton – you know the breed) can draw my interest and I have been known to while away a counter roster at work flipping though one of these.
Hey, I finished a book last weekend! It was by Laura Childs called Chamomile Mourning it was one of the teashop mysteries. I like the setting for these and the characters are very interesting. This has been a breakthrough for me I’ve not felt like reading an actual book for a while. I’m now half way through Peter Tremayne’s Master of Souls, when I ordered this one I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a Sister Fidelma mystery (7th century crime solving irish nun) or a horror story (eugh!) thankfully it was a Fidelma story.
I suppose I should clarify – I’ve been listening to Audio Books while I stitch. Thank goodness for Audible.com!
