I was asked recently what books I read. Well almost anything, but not keen on Australian or Irish books, but there were exceptions even to that. I like Maeve Binchy. Anna Jacobs wrote a Trader series set in Australia which I liked. The story follows through several books and gives an insight into the life of the early settlers in Aus and the shipping of convicts to Aus.
I read Quintin Jardine's Bob Skinner, Oz Blackstone and Primivera Blackstone books, just finished reading the latest Primivera one, Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks books, MC Beaton Agatha Raisin and Hamish McBeth, Sue Grafton's Alphabet murders, Ian Rankin's Rebus. I also read extensive fiction by a number of authors. We go to the library most weeks and I usually take out at least 6 - 8 books.
Some of the authors:
Cathy Kelly, Josephine Cox, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Cathy Woodman and many more. If I find a series I like I will reserve the books, and occasionally read one twice depending on where it comes in the series. I find the library catalogue invaluable and also authors pages on the internet they give book lists in the order in which they were published.
There is a series of books by Jennifer Chaverine, they are about a group of quilters in the US. I was introduced to them by a quilting friend and as a quilter myself really enjoy them. She has recently struck out in a new direction in American fictional history. Whether she plans to write any more of the Elm Creek Quilter books I do not know. I keep an eye on her internet page for new titles. I have to admit I have bought these books and if I am short of something to read, will go back and read them again.
My taste in books is eclectic......as you can see.
