Recently I took four large bags of books to the book exchange and came back with one bag. I still have plenty of books at home and I regularly visit the library so there is no shortage of something to read.
The top book in the picture is The Help which I read while we were overseas. I got that one for my younger daughter as she had said she would like to read it. I have seen the movie since reading the book and although I enjoyed the movie I would certainly say the book was better.
There are a couple of Penny Vincenzi books there as I had been given a recommendation for those from our host in Yorkshire. I will let you know whether I enjoy them.
Spycatcher is there because it was mentioned in the Michael Kirby biography I recently read and I thought it would make interesting reading.
The Anna Funder book is there as I have read Staziland and really enjoyed that. I borrowed All That I am from the library but didn’t get around to reading it now I have no excuse as I have a copy at home.
Kate Grenville because I have read many of her books and the same with Jo Nesbo and Anita Shreve.
Hey Mum, What’s a half-caste? as another of my non-fiction reads. Plenty to keep me going for a while.

Book exchanges are a great idea. I’m behind in my reading at the moment but hoping to get back into it soon. Happy reading.
I am finding it difficult to get on with reading non fiction which is my challenge again this year. I am doing better than last year as I only read one non fiction for the whole year.
I’m a little bit the same.
