A Tiny Attempt at a Hot Pen.
We were 18 attending and everyone managed to come up with something. Unfortunately for the blog, I didn´t make a note of all these erudite efforts but take my word, they were entertaining.
I did manage to note down the "leftovers" from last week, however.
John McG, in the chair and wielding the bell to great effect from time to time, read out a piece called "Drunk in Dunstable" to the delight of all and John McGilvray read a poem called "Roundabout Rose".
Brenda continued with her novel ,telling, from the diary, of Minnie meeting Lenny again and of sparks about to fly once more.
Mary K read a review of Janet Oke´s " Love Comes Softly", which she recommends highly and Anne G´s review was enthusiastic about M C Beaton´s " Murder By Quiche".
Jane read a poem called "Haystacks" written some time ago on one of her wedding anniversaries.
I have just finished reading the book pictured on the left and would recommend it as a good and very uplifting read. If you ever win a huge amount of money on the lottery, a donation to the founding of schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan would not come amiss.Greg Mortenson, who is the bloke the book is about has been put up as a candidate for the Nobel Peace prize and I certainly hope the Norwegians have the sense to choose him one of these days.
If you are too idle to read anything at all, Sheridan Simove´s book " What Every Man Thinks about Apart From Sex" is a 200-blank-page Amazon bestseller brought to our attention by Cathy.
Till next week! Chris J
