FORTY AUTUMNS, A GOOD READ + BO



This is my latest read.
I love to read but it must be something that holds me and if possible is informative in some way.
I do like a good thriller but so many are along the same lines that I get fed up with them.
This book is a book that I shall remember for a long time.

I do remember  hearing about and watching on tv things about the Berlin Wall years ago.
I knew roughly what it was all about but that was it.
This book is so informative on those times and follows a family who are split and live on both sides of the wall and the contrast in their lives.
I could not put it down.


Just received this photo of the naughty Bo from my daughter, lol

  2. I need a good novel to read. I never seem to finish any of them! I think I would probably enjoy this one. Bo looks like a bundle of fun. x

  3. This looks like my kind of book - thanks for the write up. I find it helpful when people give their thoughts on what they've read. And Bo is so sweet! Maybe he's pretending to be an elephant, ha ha!

  4. Thanks for the book recommendation Briony. It sounds good. As for Bo, is he really a dog or a baby elephant?

  5. I know what you mean about becoming bored with same old stories, so it is nice to find something so different. I will try to order it from the library. Adorable Bo.

  6. Bo is so cute...I visited the wall on the western side as a teen with my family. The eastern portion was very stark by comparison.
