Borrowed Books

Review: Mitch Albom – The Five People You Meet in Heaven

I’ve just finished this book and it was fantastic! It was quite a sad book, but one that definitely made you think. The book is about 83 year old Eddie, who works on Ruby Pier, a seaside fairground. One of… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Mitch Albom – The Five People You Meet in Heaven

This is the second of the books that my cousin Hannah lent me. After the disappointment of my last book, I’m hoping that I’ll enjoy this one more, and can use it to get back on track on my reading… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: John Fowles – The Collector

I’m now starting the second of my borrowed books (thanks Mike!). It sounds a bit weirder than the last one, the description on the back of the book says: … a nutty clerk captures and holds the art student he… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Sam Savage – Firmin (Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife)

Now that I’ve finished the Lily Bard series that my parents got me for Christmas, it’s time to change it up a little bit. Mike has lent me a few books to read, so that has me sorted for the… Continue Reading →
