This year's literary haul from my family:
Oh I do love the Private Eye annual (great gift!) and I’m a new convert to Terry Pratchett after Sky’s adaptation of The Hogfather. But most of all would be very interested to hear what you think of Newton.
Lords of the North is quite entertaining, though not the best of the “Saxon” books IMHO. Ackeroyd is always worth a look (I got his old Hawksmoor book yesteday!)
