A while I was reading a book on things that have done wrong in one form or another.
Admiral X, this is admiral X, you need to change course.
Seaman X, this is seaman X, you must change course.
Admiral X, this is the battle ship XX, change course now.
Seaman X, this is lighthouse X, you change course now

I got 'Can You Make This Thing Go Faster?' by Jeremy Clarkson for Christmas. Should be a good read if his previous books are anything to go by.

Recently read " The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt. I could not put it down, all 800 plus pages of it. Not my usual choice of content but I am now a convert.wink.png

Finished my Christmas book by Elizabeth Strout and currently on "The Clock Dance" by my other favourite American writer, Anne Tyler.
I love insightful books about ordinary people and these two ladies know how to wrote them.
Next up will be another 800 plus pager. Margaret Atwell. The Testaments. ( The ladies with the blinkered hats).
Has anybody read it yet?
