    Just finished Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens. I read parts of it and listened to the Audible version for some of it. The Audible version is brilliantly narrated by Juliet Stevenson.

    Not to everyone's taste, but I love the way Dickens characterises his villains and his virtuous heroines. It's a long book, and I think I'll move on to a history book next.

    Unwritten letters to Spring Street

    Due to be published in, possibly, June. This book has taken 10 years of my sisters life and therefore I have to recommend it to everyone even before its published.

    It's the story of my Great Uncle Jack during the war.
    More details are available on the website

    The Football Is Fixed Book is being released, chapter by chapter, shortly. Can't wait.

    I have read for the second time Longitude by Dava Sobel, the book is well researched about the solutions of problems of navigation.

    Not finished it yet but fantastic read so far. My cousin's misses recommended it as her dad was part of the GMP force in bringing down the killer alongside the FBI. Young couple from Chorlton got murdered in 1979 in Belize just south of Mexico.

    What's your opinion on the football is fixed guy PB? It seems to me he does a lot of good work, but also says some things that are so clearly made up that makes you question his reliability. I think my view is if he throws enough shit some will stick, rather than he's a brilliant investigatory journalist.

    It's sometimes hard to believe some of the stuff he comes out with but it's dangerous to discount him. He's been very helpful to us as well.
