    You are very welcome Nicola, it is fabulous to see the list of books that have been read, digested, discussed and debated (over many bottles of wine) I will get that top 10 to you when I can find it!
    Since the list we have added ‘The Concert Ticket’ by Olga Grushin and we are about to read ‘All The Light We Cannot See’ so I will refer the bookgroup to your review when the time comes. S xx

  2. Hi Susan – We read “The Dream Life of Sukhanov” a few years back – so will await your news and views on this novel – look forward to hearing your Top 10 and adding them to the post. We are compiling ours this end: so far “Cutting for Stone” is clear favourite, but quite a few have yet to cast their vote. Catch up again very soon, xx
