Yes, I told you about it once. A couple of the Jeeves ones, but not sure which they were now. I wouldn't mind reading more of them - it's just finding the time.

Impossible at this end Watson, seriously. I DID read when my children were younger - but mainly to THEM. I sometimes manage to read a chapter or two of some book, but I like to get through a novel in one go if possible, or you lose the gist.

Not the same for me, because I can go weeks - months - in between reading novels, by which time I forget characters or what's happening.

Well living down south, you're more likely to come across entertainers and famous people. If they aren't born down there, they usually move, to be nearer to accessible venues, agents and so on.
