Her first book, The Dry, I have as an audiobook so I am saving that for my next long trip. I will probably read Force of Nature next as I already have it on my ebook.

It is wonderful to discover a 'new' author that you really enjoy but rather sad when there are only three books available and you know that eventually you will have to wait for the next one - though I guess the anticipation is a bit of a pleasure in itself.
I am so glad I have found anther fan. A couple of weeks I read The Lost Man, the third book I have read by this wonderful author. I hope it won't be long before she publishes another.

Re: What book are you reading now?

Have just re-read A Christmas Carol by the prolific author Charles Dickens. I read it many years ago as a paperback - this copy I read on my Kindle. Still a good story no matter what the medium it is written on/in.

I was in Big W on Friday and blow me there was A Force of Nature by Jane Harper for $9 so I bought it.

It is almost impossible to put it down but I have to ration myself because I know that when I have finished this book there is only The Dry left.

Just finished this:
An excellent read from The Who frontman, though it could have been a bit longer.

Next up is this book about famous events in rock music history from journalist David Hepworth:

Re: What book are you reading now?

I am about halfway through The Legacy of Elizabeth Pringle by Kirsty Wark it is immensely readable. I think this is the first of Kirsty Wark's books I've read. I will look for others.

the Bible and I suggest a few of you snarky Atheists need to read it as well. Its a book for all sinners. not just Christian ones.

Read it. Big cast of characters but too much gore, racism, genocide, infanticide, sexism, incest, fantasy and delving into the supernatural for my taste.

Nice one Bruce. I could not say it better myself.
You forgot the fairytales.

Books?! I’ve no time for reading books! Too much packing to get done.

1000 Years of Annoying the French, an amusing book that debunks various claims made by the French over the centuries. From their assertions of success in wars to their erroneous belief that champagne and croissants are of French origin. They aren't.

Their duplicity is also examined in detail.
