Cecily's book reviews

In general I've written reviews of every book I've read since I joined GoodReads (RIP) in May 08, along with one or two I read prior to that. More recent reviews tend to be longer (sometimes a tad too long?). I always carry a book, though I don't get as much time as I'd like to get engrossed - life is busy, but in a good way. Too many of my favourite authors died without writing enough! Apart from reading, and writing about reading, I enjoy Scrabble, good restaurants, woodland, and attending the theatre.

The Songs of Michael Flanders and Donald Swann

The Songs Of Michael Flanders & Donald Swann - Donald Swann The text and score for all their greatest songs - very necessary as some of them are near tongue-twisters without the words.

Brilliant word play and delight in language.

Not necessarily very politically correct these days!
