I’m reading “The Sound of Laughter” by Peter Kay at the moment and I have to say that it is a funny book. I might almost have broken the golden rule on the Tube and smiled a few times. Just the names he comes up with for the nuns who taught at his school is amusing enough, but it’s a really nice observational type humour. A very light-hearted read.

I am trying to think of a book to listen to in talking book form on the journey to and from Cornwall in a few weeks time. It’s about a six hour journey each way, so we thought we might listen to a book, but I’m trying to think of some suggestions. We don’t want to be stuck in a car for all that time and have picked a book that bores us to tears (which obviously isn’t safe when you’re driving). Of course, we can switch it off if we don’t like it but then it would be a missed opportunity. I was thinking maybe a Daphne du Maurier, as a lot of her books are set in the region, but we shall see.

If you want to read books on the interweb then there is a site here with some books you can download. This might have been useful for G yesterday who was trying to read a book whilst at work without any colleagues noticing – which is a challenge when you sit next to them. It’s much easier to look like you’re working if it’s on your computer screen. Just tap a few keys every now and then. Alternatively, get books e-mailed to you via this site - many of which are free.
