Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen would have to be my favourite book for June 2010. I know it was written in 2006 but I've only just read it. A really sensitive look at what it is to grow old and have everyone except you forget what a wonderful and exciting life you have led. Makes you wonder about all of the older folk in the community - I'm sure they have great stories to tell too.

  1. Yes I loved Water for elephants too. You make me laugh talking about what 'older folk' have done. I was recently listening to some young folk talking about making a piggy-back parachute descent. It never occurred to them to ask me if I'd ever done it (and I ain't that old) but in my day we just went on a static line, no piggybacking !
