A book dedicated to the history and all other things chocolate. A lovely fun read, given to mum by Douglas Cave (the 12/13 year old who produced our website). Gives you a very easy and digestible insight into chocolate.
Now I'm going to try reading The Book Thief, on loan from Katy. (Is this a new feature on the blog - a trailer of the next review?)

Thanks for the loan of this Sarah. An excellent book by a very skilled author. Clever, funny in parts, sad in parts and with some story twist which take you by surprise. Does he write anything which is not from an American jewish perspective? I'll read more of his stuff.

My third time, I think, of reading this. And I'd forgotten how perfect it is. You may not like Hemingway's books or his macho male image but this book is an exercise in writing perfection. His other books are not like this, but this is 100 pages with not a sentence wasted or unfocussed or extraneous. Even if you don't like the story he has composed a bit of literary perfection. Did I go over the top?
