2017 Reading List

9. Past Secrets - Cathy Kelly
A distraction novel for me.

8. Deception Point - Dan Brown
Nasa the Presidency and a fake meteorite. Lots of suspense which is usual for this author, great read, but its a once only read. It didn't grab me in the same way as the Papal novels he has written have done.

7. Born To Run - Bruce Springsteen
Wow! Really really enjoyed this autobiography. Loved the way he combines words in unusual words, loved that the story of his life and the EStreet Band.  Highly recommend reading this.

6. The Making of Miss Potter - Garth Pearce
Another withdrawn book to add to my collection of Beatrix Potter materials. I find her fascinating. Enjoyed the text and the photo's from the film and film set.  

5. The Liquid Continent - Nicholas Woodsworth
The second in a trilogy. Again a find in the withdrawn books and I primarly picked it up because it is 'hand-size' and about Venice.  I thought I would draw in it, but I read it - this writer was travelling around the Mediterranean by ship following ancient shipping routes. Now I've read it - I can scribble in it.

4. Mrs Kennedy and Me - Clint Hill
A view from Mrs Kennedy's Secret Service Agent on his life and the Secret Service.  Enjoyed this and picked it up from the withdrawn books - so is now on my book shelf.

3. Together is Better - Simon Sinek
Simply put and very elegant. "Success is when reality looks like what is in our imagination" Simon Sinek

2. The Storm Sister - Lucinda Riley
Great writing and story telling in this series of novels. Always the mystery about Pa Salt is being slowly unpicked. Really, really enjoying this set of seven stories.

1. Paper Collage Chinese Style - Shu Liqun Paper Arts Museum\\
Self-impose pre-course study and I really enjoyed this book.
