What I Just Finished Reading
Shopgirls by Pamela Cox and Annabel Hobley. I really enjoyed it. It was interesting to see how things changed over the decades. You can gradually see how we got to where we are today. I was particularly interested in the bit where it talked about people working in the shops dealing with ration cards during the war, because I've only had heard it from the consumer's perspective before.
What I'm Currently Reading
The Bettany Twins and the Chalet School by Helen Barber. Which is mainly about Maeve and Maurice, but also about the Bettany family. It's pretty standard Chalet School stuff, but there's also something nefarious that Dick's involved with and I'm looking forward to finding out what that's all about.
What I'm Reading Next
The Kingdom by Jess Rothenburg. My library did a thing where you can tell them what sort of things you like and they pick out some books for you. I interpreted that as they'll find me things in the genres I like, similar to the authors I like, that is new to me. They interpreted it as they'll give me books by the authors I like. But I ticked the box to get a surprise, so that's this book. From the blurb on the back it looks like a sci-fi murder mystery, which sounds like my sort of thing. So I'm looking forward to reading it (and not looking at any other information about it in case I put myself off the idea of reading something new).
