A day early - yes. But a pre emptive strike grin

Our July book is Man at the Helm by Nina Stibbe - more info HERE

If you got a free copy (they are on the way if no one has had yet!) then don't forget to leave questions and comments for Nina before the end of the month. If you weren't lucky this time - why not buy or borrow a copy and join the conversation?

Thank you for my copy of 'Man at the helm' which arrived this morning. Can't wait to read it but must watch the Andy Murray match first.

Many thanks for the copy of the latest Nina Stibbe book, I read her last one, and I'm looking forward to starting this one at the weekend.

harrigran Fri 10-Jul-15 11:53:15

I started reading this book as soon as it arrived, I am struggling, not sure I will finish it.

Pittcity Fri 10-Jul-15 13:38:46

I have started and agree with harrigran. Haven't found the promised comedy yet. I will persevere.

Galen Fri 10-Jul-15 14:11:00

Mine arrived yesterday. See how I go!

Thank you for my copy. Looking forward to reading it.

Maggiemaybe Fri 10-Jul-15 18:59:46

Thank you very much for my copy. I've only read page 1 and it's already made me laugh. Got a couple of gory murder mysteries to finish off this weekend and then I'll be on it.

chloe1984 Sat 11-Jul-15 08:23:20

Have read up to chapter 6 feel that I may be missing something as I am really struggling to continue. I will keep reading and hope I 'get it' .

Received my book Thursday and read the first half dozen chapters in a waiting room yesterday. Not the place to laugh out loud but thankfully the comedy is more of a "makes you smile" variety to date.
An interesting viewpoint to take and I think Nina Stibbs has the tone quite right for a child of the age.
Now I've finished reading my last book I can give this my full attention an comment later when I have finished.

Thanks for my book! If the first chapter is anything to go it looks to be an amusing casual read. :-)
