A MERRY Christmas to all our readers, wherever they are and whatever their faiths - we wish you well!
Here on this non-profit-making website retired journalists bring you uplifting reading instead of all that bad news. We're delighted to encounter readers from so many different and wonderful places, from the United States to the United Arab Emirates, from Brazil to China - welcome!
There is much free reading here, see our pages for novels, memoir and poetry, including a weekly newspaper column that reminds us we're none of us so different after all.
Should you purchase any books, published on Kindle or in paperback sponsored by the British Arts Council, it will help maintain this home-spun venture recently topping the 50,000 readership mark - how marvellous and encouraging!
Have a wonderful holiday, celebrate life but also relax - and enjoy your reading too!
Our best wishes to you all.
