Office Life details 5 Days in the life of an English Office. There’s lots of banter and insults flying around in this story. One person goes to the wrong place for the weekend, another has horrible personal habits, and a couple have sex over a desk when no one is watching, but someone is listening. The main character undergoes a transformation after losing a race and feels better for it.
The official category for this Book is dark humour, but really it’s a combination of British humour, irony, and sarcasm. If you like all or any of these categories of humour, this book could be for you.
Office Life is available from 12th – 19th December at a discount.
SHE’S COMING FOR YOU
She’d loved animals her whole life.
When her friends expressed their sadness that no one was hunting the hunters of animals, she decided to rectify the situation. She was the ideal candidate. In her normal job, as a soldier behind enemy lines, she’d killed animal abusers when given the chance and the animals were given some respite from their ordeals.
Now she was not undercover. She was on holiday, travelling on the trains in Spain and Portugal. There were no colleagues to back her up. She would have to take risks. She doesn’t keep a diary of the deaths, but does like to write about the history of the places she has visited. This makes her seem like a normal human being – even when she isn’t.

KEEPING IN TOUCH
This book is available here at a discount from 12th December to 19th December.
We are closer to those further away than to those nearer to us.
A story about communication in the 21st Century. Is Social Media making us unsociable. Are all our heads in The Cloud?
The usage of language fascinates me and I am continually amazed at how many new words/acronyms/initialisms are cropping up in everyday life. There are so many ways for people to stay socially connected and it can become overwhelming at times especially when our comfort zones about sharing information are rapidly reducing.
Although communication has never been easier, it seems we are always trying to communicate with people who are far away to the detriment of those who are near by.
The hero of this story is at the centre of everyone else’s communications whether she wants to be or not. At work, on the bus, or at home, the people who are closest to her are in communication with people further away. She cherishes a conversation on the bus and realises how difficult it is to remove technology from our lives.
A light-hearted book for a difficult time.
Where is Freddie?
Is he in the washing machine or under the bath, behind the dry stone wall, or trying to climb the tall tree in the corner of the garden?
Freddie was a cat who loved bread and would steal it whenever he could, even if it meant biting into a sandwich that was on my plate when I was holding it. We would then play tug-of-war with the sandwich, which wasn’t designed to be used for this sport. Freddie would take the sandwich somewhere inaccessible and I would have to clean up the mess.
