'Songs of Enchantment' by Ben Okri. Bit disappointing actually - Okri was the 1991 Booker Prize Winner so I was expecting to be blown away but not really enjoying the book very much - perhaps because it's a sequel and I haven't read the first one?

Also dipping into some haikus, some Japanese short stories and some travel writing collections by Jan Morris.

I was reading Fingers in the Sparkle Jar - an autobiography of Chris Packham who's a wildlife guy here in the UK but it was so badly written I've given up and taken it back to the library. I'm now reading a fascinating book called Octavia Daughter of the Messiah. It's really interesting get and is about The Panacea Society who were a religious community in Bedford started just after WW1

I always read the first in the series first. That's where they introduce characters and story line.

I just finished Vinegar Girl, the new Anne Tyler. It's an update on The Taming of the Shrew and lots of fun. Short and sweet.
