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 Cambridge Guide to English Usage - Pam Peters A comprehensive, sensible, up-to-date and very practical reference book, backed up with the latest research, and including insights into international English and variants such as American English. It manages to be more comprehensive than Fowler, but also far less opaque. Indispensable, and not too bulky or expensive.
