Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Two Novels in Tandem

I know a lot of people who would never consider reading two novels at the same time.

Well,  I received 'Girl on the Train' by Paula Hawkins

and 'The Secrets of Happiness' by Lucy Diamond

amongst my Christmas pressies and decided that I didn't want to read the harrowing one before bed time.

Consequently, I am reading Lucy Diamond before 'lights-out' and 'Girl on the Train' in snatched moments in the day.

Of course, I could end up confusing the two plots and characters in my head, but I'm hopeful I won't and that the exercise will stimulate my brain rather than confuse it.

My thinking is that we read many things in the day from newspapers and letters to emails and homework exercises as well as novels without confusing them.

Would you read two novels at the same time?
Maybe you have read these novels yourselves? Tell all... 

Happy Easter 
Afterword: I have since discovered that Girl on the Train is more involved and so requires more brain power. So I will finish Lucy Diamond, which I am enjoying, (giggling included) and then return to Paula Hawkins

Matt Harvey ~ Poet ~ Latest Book

Hi all, 
I bumped into Matt Harvey today and said 'Hello'.

He's launching a new book in collaboration with artist Claudia Schmid. 

His poems are inspired by the illustrations, so why not pop along to his website and get your copy.


On a personal note, I'm off to the optician's again because of my scotopic-like symptoms, which significantly reduce my ability to use bright computer/ tablet/ android screens for any period of time. 

It's another reason for my not being on Blogger much these days. So, I do hope, this time, they can sort me out.

In the meantime I hope everyone is still busy writing successfully?
