I know an author, oh yes. She has written a book (as authors do) and she suggests that, if I am short of content, I might give it a plug. I have not yet read it but I was in Eason’s on O’Connell street today and I was pleased to see it front and centre on the ground floor. If you are looking for a Christmas read, may I recommend Emily Bell’s “This Year’s for You and Me”? You will see that I am not alone in my recommendation as Eason’s has put it with best new fiction. If it’s anything like last year’s Christmas best seller by the same author, it’s a sweet and funny Christmassy tale. I am waiting until December to read my (already purchased to avoid disappointment etc.) copy.
