Our local library has recently undergone a 12 month multi-million pound makeover, and reopened last Monday. Coincidentally, I’d reserved a book which needed to be picked up that day so I popped in to have a look round. It iss all very high-tech, a cafe had been added, and there were more public computer terminals than previously, but to be honest, I didn’t really think it needed improving much – I liked it how it was. Thankfully, the modernisation has only taken place internally, it would be a shame to have spoilt such a lovely old building, wouldn’t it?
Anyway, the book I picked up on Monday and am currently reading is this:
Diane Chamberlain is one of my favourite authors currently, and I am working my way through her entire back catalogue. Her books are often based around a moral or ethical dilemma, and this one tells the story of a woman who has an affair with her best friend’s husband after her best friend has an aneurysm and suffers permanent brain damage. I’m really enjoying it, finding it quite unputdownable. Which means the housework’ll suffer again this week! Hey ho.
Viewing-wise, I’ve just caught up with the final two episodes of the second series of the fab BBC legal drama, Silk. I really enjoyed the first series last year, and the second has been even better. I do hope they make another series – I want to know what happens to Billy, whose story ended on something of a cliffhanger!
Have you read or watched anything good lately?
