Waterstones Cambridge

Will you come and join me and Carolina Rabei this 4th of July at Waterstones in Cambridge?

We will read, sign and draw for you.


The Museum of Extraordinary Things - Alice Hoffman

This book was a random Amazon buy.  Really I had no idea about the plot or even the author, I liked the cover and I wanted free delivery so I bought this one at random.   353 more words


Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

I had previously seen Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children in various expeditions to Waterstones under the Horror section.  It has long been a book I have gravitated towards as it has such an unusual cover.   475 more words


I am a compulsive reader

I can read a book in a couple of days, I can have 2 or 3 books on the go at the same time and I can even re read books I have read before.   324 more words


The Value of Rarity!

I still say that holding a real paperback in one’s hands beats any number of Kindle Surprises! It is for this reason that I have imported all six files onto Createspace, ordered Proof copies and, in the fullness of time, taken the inevitable ‘Ali with latest book’ selfie – like you do! 224 more words


Where do you buy your children's books?

I‘d really like to say I go to my local book shop…….browse…….. then walk out with a handful of beautiful new books……..(blue sky…. tweeting birds, son skipping next to me), unfortunately the reality is we don’t have a local book shop. 151 more words


Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell

I’ve had Cloud Atlas sitting on my bookcase for months.  I tried reading this once before about 6 months ago and didn’t get past the first chapter.   516 more words
