Many thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes on Tuesday’s post. I had a quiet day, and the posh biscuits were delicious.
With the clocks changing at the weekend, and lots of non-plotting weather over the coming months I’m sure that I’ll be doing plenty of armchair gardening and sofa flying, so there may well be some off-plot posts for a few months.
The last sofa reading post was at the end of May and the break since has been longer than I intended, but hopefully they will resume properly from next month.
Both Liz and I have read spy novels recently. Her choice The English Spy by Daniel Silva is the 15th book in the popular series featuring Gabriel Allon. They’re not books that I’ve read apart from a couple of the early ones.
I’m looking forward to reading John LeCarre‘s recently published A Legacy of Spies, the 9th in the George Smiley series. I recently reread the first of these, Call for the Dead, which was LeCarre’s first book published in 1961. The edition I read is notable as it only shows his surname on the front cover.
Have a good weekend, and happy reading!
