a kindle is one type of e-reader - if you have one i can send in mobi, the format that kindle used or you can download a program called 'calibre' - a free and very good program that converts from one format to another (and to pdf). iPad uses epub and other e-readers use a mix of other formats. pm me your email if you want them.

That’s very kind of you but I don’t think I’d get my head round it. I can’t manage the Gutenberg thing either. And to be fair I have a long waiting list of Kindle books to keep me busy but thanks for the offer.

you do realise that you can have documents etc sent straight to your kindle using your kindle email address (from others, not just amazon)?
or load them straight from your computer using the charging cable - it acts a bit like an external hard drive.

I didn’t realise, no. I’ll have to have a tutorial from younger son before he moves out. Thanks Scully.

Has anyone read The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman? It’s terrific.

Yes, I liked it. Just loved the premise, set in a retirement complex, I couldn’t help but be reminded of dear FCQ.

I treated myself to this recently...recipes and book suggestions broken down by seasons.

The blurb at the top is blurry but it reads ‘Recipes you long to cook, suggestions for books you want to read, a sense of place and season, and tales of a life lived thoughtfully and well. This is a very special book, written well with great generosity’. Diana Henry.

Such a lovely book if anyone needs present ideas for others or just for yourself!
