Shiny New Books, Cornish Books, Books to Write About ….

You may have spotted it already but, just in case you haven’t, let me tell you that the new issue of Shiny New Books is here!

There is a wonderfully rich and diverse array of bookish reading; hours of wonderful entertainment for anyone with an interest in books of pretty much any kind.

I’ve only scratched the surface, but I’ve already added books to my wishlist and pushed others up my list of reading priorities.


Somewhere in there you’ll find my list of books to transport you to Cornwall.

I can warmly recommend each and every one, and I can recommend many more. There were books that are out of print – but easy to obtain, there were books that had to be set aside so that the list could be diverse as possible, and there are books that are so well known that they recommend themselves and don’t need me.

Here are some of them:


Though I’m sure that there are wonderful books that I haven’t got to yet, and others that have slipped my mind …..

More soon!

  1. Shiny New Books is a dangerous thing for wishlists!! And I’m glad the Margaret Kennedy reading week is on – I shall try very hard to join in!

  2. I’m thoroughly enjoying Shiny New Books, although I’m having to avoid making any lists of ones to buy from it this month – as I’ve bought enough books in July to last me till October.

    I love seeing Penelope Fitzgerald on any recommended reading list, Offshore and The Bookshop are two of my favourite books.
