Re: What are you reading now?

Just finished Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. Started it a few months ago before lockdown - I thought it would be an easy train read going up and down to Glasgow but I found it hard to get into so set it aside.

Having lived in Australia for 56 years I have great admiration for the way our Police force conduct themselves. They go above and beyond to try to keep us safe.
