Couldn't wait for the weekend to source new reading material. Took the little dog for a walk to the second hand book shop, returned five books and chose four 'new' ones. Can't stop this search for biographical style reads. The books I brought home are: "For the Love of Julie", by Ann Ming, (about her daughter's murder and the fight for justice), "Salvation Creek", by Susan Duncan ('An unexpected life'), "Kathy's Story", by Kathy O'Beirne - 'Inside the hell of Ireland's notorious Magdalen Sisters' Laundries' and "Judy Dench, and Furthermore", by Judy Dench (naturally).
It's only as I write this list that I realise these books are all written by women. Do men not write biographical books? Or do I unconsciously only buy this sort of book written by women? Not sure, but I think it's the former. Not that there are no male authors of biographical tales, but I think maybe they are fewer. (I'll check the book shelf and see).
Meanwhile I have uploaded several more photos on to the Real Esate web-site where our house 'sits' unwanted by anyone but us. Will it ever sell? People say to me, "Are you still selling your house?" and I have to answer that, "No, we are not selling our house, but yes, our house is still for sale - and there is a big difference."
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
