Good Reading : February 2018
GOOD READING FEBRUARY 2018 9 Dear Rowena Today I received a lovely surprise – David Lagercrantz’s new book, The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye. Stieg Larsson, the author of the ‘Millennium’ series, died without a valid will with guidelines for his literary legacy, so apparently his family decided to use this other author, David Lagercrantz. I enjoyed his first book, so I’m sure I’ll enjoy this one too. I love Scandinavian cr ime and have many books by more than 30 authors. It helps that I have visited those countries, and the authors write so descr iptively that they take me back there. I have recently retired after 56 years as a pharmacist and have always been an avid reader, getting through two or three books a week. This week I went to Dymocks in the city and bought Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson for my 15-year-old granddaughter in Victor ia. I have since read it and I’m sure she’ll love it. It’s educational and funny. I also bought The Number Games by Adam Spencer for her 13-year-old brother and the latest ‘Ruby Redfort’ book for their 11-year- old sister. This series by Lauren Child is a favourite of another 11-year-old granddaughter in Brisbane. Another book that you recommended was The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, which I bought for a granddaughter who is studying sustainability at university; she is now in Bhutan with other students from the uni. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas – including Baxter.
