I've always gobbled up books like Billy Bunter did doughnuts. And since I've been on my own I've read more than ever. This is partly because now I read at mealtimes - works so well with iPad propped - and I'm a very slow eater. Lockdowns have added even more reading time, of course, because I'm not going out to interview people or to review shows. I'm currently averaging about three a week including lots of lovely rereads of old favourites.
It was my daughter-in-law who suggested that I write about my reading. I was feeling a bit low and in need of a project or two. She said she thought other people would probably be interested in hearing what I've been reading. So, last month, I launched a new blog - Susan's Bookshelves - on which I write about one book a week. It's fairly personal, often anecdotal, always informal and not really a review as such Here's the link: http://susanelkin.co.uk/articles/category/susansbookshelves/
Meanwhile, perhaps someone will soon be blogging about The Alzheimer's Diaries the funding for which is climbing steadily and now stands at 53%. I'm deeply appreciative of the support so far. Please can you also share it as widely as you can so that we get the pledges it still needs?
