We've been watching some of the old Cadfaels, starring Derek Jacobi. They're really good!

It's a nice different angle on the usual whodunnit. Check them out if you get a chance.

It's also nice to hear them saying "Shrewsbury" - or even "Shoozbury" - like the locals do, instead of "Shroesbury". :-D

I've read several of the books, but not seen video/film performances. Very enjoyable and a change from modern detective fiction.

My lucky day. The friend and neighbour who previously lent me a couple of books asked me to take the whole set to a charity sale. I'm going to read them all first...

Oh yes! Good idea - enjoy!

I've got really into the Aubrey and Maturin books - Royal Navy history. There are more than 20 of them so that'll keep me busy for a while. I think I'm on book no. eight now. I like when you finish a book and instead of a feeling of loss you have another to move on to.

I've been reading other books meanwhile too. I guess I should post about them.

I'm always reading and have never met anyone who reads as many books as I do. I read before I go to sleep. I read as soon as I wake up. I don't always read so many books during the day if I'm at home - I'm mostly reading stuff on the internet then.

I'm completely addicted to books.

I'm glad you like the Aubrey/Maturin series. When you've finished them, try Julian Stockwin's Kydd series. Groundbreaking in that their hero starts as a pressed man and work his way up into the Officer class.

Wow, sounds good. Thanks, Ruggie. I'm always looking for new things to read.

An added advantage: Julian is still very much alive and runs a very active Facebook page.
