fullsizeoutput_7b8Just a very quick post to brag, sorry, update everyone on the books I was given for my recent birthday, especially as I failed to do this with my more substantial Christmas haul; that moment has passed.

America’s Queen by Sarah Bradford – a biography of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis; I’ve always been fascinated by Jackie K (and Eleanor Roosevelt but probably for different reasons). This is a chunkster.

Art in the Blood by Bonnie MacBird – a Sherlock Holmes adventure with a cool premise and even cooler cover. I cannot resist a good Holmesian tribute.

Flappers by Judith Mackrell – my fascination with aristocratic and/or glamorous women continues…..

The Golden Fleece by Muriel Spark – for the Centenary, a book of essays to add to the read along list

I’d Die for You & Other Lost Stories by F Scott Fitzgerald – because it’s Fitzgerald.

You will also see a couple of DVDs in the stack. I make no apologies for the presence of Tom Cruise.
