Virgin Earth by Philippa Gregory.

It's a follow on from *Earthly Joys*it's about John Tradescant and John Tradescant the younger who were Charles 1st's gardners just before the civil war.

I'm enjoying it...just wish I had more time to read more than a chapter at a time ! x

The End of Borley Rectory.

Harry Price


Cooper Report 2 Feb 2011 19:36

Is that Borley in Essex/Suffolk, Robin?

The brave kids at school used to go there at night in the older kids cars because it was said to be haunted!

I was too scared to even think about it. Lol



Conan Report 2 Feb 2011 19:50

It is indeed Teresa.

The Rectory is no longer there .......... but the church is one hell of a place to visit after dark


Cooper Report 2 Feb 2011 19:53

I will give it a miss I think Robin:)

Like Muffy, Virgin Earth - just started it. Have to go for a glucose tolerance test at 8.45 tomorrow morning and was told to bring a book because I'll be there for 2 hours, so hope to read a lot more of it then. Might do my nails too and study my seed catalogues! (No, not my toenails lol!)

I've just started reading an Inspector Lynley mystery - Missing Joseph by Elizabeth George.



nuttybongo Report 2 Feb 2011 21:27

The mystery of Abbotsford. Christmas present from ebay. Its an old book. I like them old. Have modern books too, but quite a lot of old books. 1845 i think is the oldest.

I have loaded my Kindle up with dozens of old Science Fiction novels from the 1950s and 1960s. Mostly free from Gutenberg.com

Slowly working my way through them!
