What Do You Want to Read Next

Hi Everyone. Have you any suggestions for the Purple Book Group Winter Read? I have been given 3 book titles so far, all absolute corkers, but I could do with a few more. Don't think the book has to be highbrow or great literature. Just your recommendation that it is a good read is enough to get your choice included in the next vote. Remember, I will collate the suggested book and then we all have a vote. Every member is automatically part of the book group. You don't have to join.

Just pm me the book title or jot it down in the comments below.

Frances's Avatar Lampie, I will try to send you some suggestions, but also wanted to let you know that a hearing impaired friend of mine has now begun reading (with my strong recommendation) Deaf Sentence. She is loving it, and says that if she were a writer, she could have written this book. (Of course, she's got a few more chapters of plot to discover!)

Boudicca23's Avatar I've just finished reading the novel 'The Love of Stones' by Tobias Hill (a poet) which was riveting. Reviews: 'A bold and intricate novel, a complex tapestry that ranges across time and space, but with a single theme: the manipulative power of exceptional jewels.' Penelope Lively, Independent. 'A compelling thriller... Slicing through six centuries in a single sweep, the historic structure on to which Hill has crafted a gripping yarn binds together his themes about greed and ambition, and about our urge to possess the past in a vain quest for immortality.' Naomi Gryn, The Times
