Second Bite at the Cuckoo

Tim really doesn't like JKRowling's book. He's had another go at it, and this time he has torn the cover right across to the spine. I shall have to get the Sellotape out and do a spot repair (Ha! Excuse the pun). But happily all the words are intact.

I enjoyed the book and found it an absorbing read. I didn't guess the villain and was surprised when he/she was revealed. It's a neat set up for a series based on Strike and Robin's adventures. I wondered at the title until I reached the book's conclusion, and then all became clear - but to talk about it here would spoil the pleasure of those about to read the book, so I shall stay quiet.
Sorry Helen. It's no way to treat a gift and I've had words with Tim about this habit of pouncing on a certain lady's book. He promises to do better in future, but we all know what that night mean. I now keep all my books on the very highest shelf in my study, or in a drawer in my bedroom.

I'm off to do some research on how people tag their books. I think I'm doing it correctly but  reassurance would be nice.

Learn from experience with young dogs, Jen, lol. Every day before I go to work, I make a quick sweep through the house to be sure everything is put up. One of my dogs (Gryffin) loves to rip apart those bath sponges if I don't hang it up.

I'm learning fast, my other half at a slower rate. This morning it was the two-page telephone list that got grabbed, then dh's sweater, then his slippers. Sigh. He's turned naughty too - just like a teenager.
