What I have read: I have finished rereading Aaronovitch's Rivers of London and Moon over Soho and read Whispers under Ground.

What I am reading: Broken Homes.

What I am planning to read: Foxglove Summer ... those are the kind of books I can't stop reading (well, I can, but. Life doesn't stop for books, more's the pity)

Strangely, I see a bit of myself in Peter Grant (I am not much for self-identifying with book characters, and usually not with men): this 'ability to get distracted' for which he is so often reproached by Lesley and Nightingale, and keen interest in _things_)

But actually I have been reading other things too - a little) Still browsing Polish Embroidery, a little of Jan Morris's Oxford, a little of Cambridge Companion to Modern Japanese Culture.

How was Rivers of London? I hear a lot about it... Would you recommend it?

I've been recommending to anyone who stays still long enough to listen: the books are not like anything else I h ever read, the characters are interesting and lots of little references are slipped in - I doubt if I've caught all of them.

And the sense of place is terrific, both the books set in London and the latest one.

This sounds exciting. Perhaps I will give it a try!
