If you can still find it - From Hell. You might remember the movie, about Jack the Ripper.Any good graphic novel recommendations?
Jesus. If you can’t go to the library without getting hurt things are pretty grim.Just remember books can be dangerous. I went to the library yesterday and left in an ambulance....some old lady lost control of her mobility scooter, crashed into a heavy table and pinned my legs to the circulation desk while a perspex screen broke on my head. The old lady said she was 90 and had that scooter for a while. I'm thinking of getting a faster one she said. Lucky no one was seriously injured she remarked as she gave me a cheery wave goodbye and took off full throttle.
A traumatic experience that clearly illustrates (split that sucker ohhh yeah) the danger that the elderly represent to all of us. If only there was some virus that targets the very elderly and frail and that could thin their numbers. What? Too soon.Just remember books can be dangerous.

WHAT???? Corruption and collusion at the high end of politics. It sounds like a flat earth conspiracy theorist has written this book. I hope you don't start posting that big pharma lie to increase profits.I've just finished reading the final book in Don Winslows Cartel Trilogy. Consisting of The Power of the Dog, The Cartel and The Border it's taken him over 20 years to complete the series. The books are meticulously researched. Although fiction many of the incidents in the books have been inspired by real life events. The collusion of the drug cartels and the Mexican govt. has been well documented, Winslow suggests that government collusion doesn't stop at the border and some in Washington have their snouts deep in the trough. Winslow was an anti terrorist trainer and has a history in law enforcement.
I'll have to try them next. I've been reading Michael Robothams books lately. I particularly like his Cyrus Haven series. He lives on the northern beaches where he writes from his " Cabana of Cruelty". Not sure if he's a Manly supporter.Lol, I thought it must be a cookbook
Been reading a couple of Cormoran Strike novels, he's a one legged detective and the author is Robert Galbraith (aka J K Rowling of Hary Potter fame). Way better than run of the mill detective fare, largely due to the characters and storytelling (which would be no surprise for Potter fans). Apparently there's several and I didn't start at the first one but doesn't seem to matter, I read Troubled Blood and now am half way through The Silkworm. Enjoying them!
I haven't bought a book for a while but I'm a regular library user. You can get just about any book you want through inter library loan. It's got to be a pretty rare book that's not available somewhere in Australia.I actually bought a book for the first time in a very long time this morning. I used to be an avid reader, but due to medical reasons, I just stopped. This book is only 286 pages. So I hope it is a stepping stone back to one of my favourite things…reading.
Hmm. A clue as to your identity perhaps?'They' say he invented the 'cozy mystery' genre which is utter b/s as there are tons of authors doing it, and very successfully. Like I hear they even go on lots of overseas holidays and stuff.
