    Welcome to 2017 friends and fellow lovers of literature, and year 2 of the MSE Bookworm's Thread.

    Same principals as the 2016 thread, which can be found here, rate it and recommend it if you can. All tastes and genres are welcome. The more we know about the book, the better! I shall again aim for a book a week, let's see if it happens this year

    Happy reading in 2017!

    Hi


    Can I join? I love reading, but aiming to spend less money (the reason I was on here in the first place) so any suggestions for cheap or free books? I have an iphone with the kindle app, and I am am amazon prime customer, but as far as I know I can't "borrow" books on amazon unless I have a kindle, not the app? Am I right?

    Hi and welcome.

    Someone who knows better than me will answer your query (I don't have an iphone, sorry)

    I use the library a lot.

    Book 21:



    7/10. Not quite what I expected, but went some way to explaining how surgeons behave, and wandered into some deep philosophical territory. It was of course sad, particularly towards the end. It challenged me in ways I didn't anticipate: I somehow thought it would be different. I certainly would NOT recommend it to anyone going through the trauma of cancer: although many are very treatable, there wasn't a happy ending in this case.

    I've just realised at this stage in the year, I am well ahead of my book-a-week target! And most enlightening it has been too

    Thanks to Chris25 for pointing me here

    I'm currently reading my way through Tad Willams' Otherland series (on Book Three at the moment).
    Stunning story and highly recommended to anyone who loves Fantasy/Sci-Fi...
    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.
