What I'm Reading Right Now (8)


Quote of the day:

There is no friend as loyal as a book.
-Ernest Hemingway


This week for my book reading, I've chosen the same author as the last time, but with an entirely different title. Jeffrey Archer's 'Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less' is my choice and it certainly is a page turner I must say. So special thanks to those who made mention of it in my previous book reading post. 

Since my last read was just one out of a seven part chronicle (with only 5 published so far), I will attempt to read a new book (not necessarily by Archer) each time I finish a part of the chronicle.

Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less is Archer's first book. It is a tale about fraud, raw determination and revenge. A story about four men stopping at nothing to get back in full what was stolen from them. I am having a hard time putting it down, and its been a great read so far.

So tell me, what books(s) do you have in your reading list this week?

  7. I have just discovered Stella Rimmington novels. I expect Archer writes well but he lost future readers by his rudeness in Australia when interviewed by a respected broadcaster.

  11. I've not heard of this book--I'm currently reading N.T. Wright's "Surprised by Scripture", a book based on a collection of essays on Writing Biographies, and rereading Mark Twain's "Roughing It' (which I am currently teaching). I seldom am reading only one book at a time

  12. I have read quite a few books from Jeffrey Archer but this is one that I haven't yet. I must look into it because I like his writing. Right now I'm reading 'Only Time Will Tell' from this author. I'm 2/3 of the way through and I'm really enjoying it. If you like Jeffrey Archer's style, you might want to also read 'Kane and Abel', my favourite book from his to date, if you haven't read it yet. Wonderful story.

  16. Sounds like a great read! I am just starting a book I borrowed from a friend- 4 Days Left. They had read it and told me I had to read it, so I am. :)

    Happy reading!

  17. Not a book I would like to read. He is a bad man.

  18. While I try not to get too worked-up about revenge, anymore, the story was a great read, back in the early 80s, which is when I read it.

    Enjoy the book!

    Have a Wonderful Week!
    Peace :)

  20. I just read an article about libraries. The stories of their demise has been greatly exaggerated. There is a new one being built just a few miles from me.

  21. Mmmmm, did you realize that click-able links, in comments, do not show up as a different color?

    They turn green and are click-able, if you run your cursor over them. But....... If they had a different color, when simply published, they would be more likely to be clicked on. Yes?

  25. So far, I have never read anything by Jeffrey Archer.
    Currently on my bedside table is a book by Neil Gaiman, "The Ocean at the End of the Lane". When I'm on the train to and from work, I am reading a 19th century work about Phoenician history.

  31. Hello Mr. B,

    Indeed, "there is no friend as loyal as a book." :-)

    Mr. Archer inspired my love for captivating & intelligently written fiction. I remember both reading the book "Kain & Abel" and watching the film adaptation when I was very young. He is a master story teller.

    My latest author crush is Scott Turow, he makes John Grisham look like plain bread. I am currently reading "Presumed Innocent". I'm halfway gone and there are still no clues as to how the story will end, the suspense is making me giddy :-)

    Have a lovely rest-of-the-week :-)

  44. I've been reading Mr. Archer's work for a few years and he is a truly brilliant storyteller with the ability to rope you in. His characters have such depth that it's almost as if they are right in the room with you. Glad you're enjoying it! Hugs...Ro

  47. I was just thinking today when I sat at a children's book fair how books have been such god friends to me since I was a child. At the moment I'm reading a book called The Good Girl by Mary Kubica. It's not bad.

  51. I miss reading just for the sake of reading, all the reading I have done this year has been for exams and I kind of am tired of it.

    I guess all I can for now is gather the names of books to read once school is over.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I looked it up and it was first published in 1976. This brings back memories. In the '80s and '90s I would buy secondhand books from the '70s and '80s and they were amazing reads. They got me into reading. I also see that some of them have turned into ebooks thanks to companies that publish older titles.

  53. Two book by Jeffrey Archer. Now I really must check out something by him.

  54. Love the company of a book, but I'll take issue with Hemingway on his quote.

  57. Amen, Hemingway.

    I love this sentence: "It is a tale about fraud, raw determination and revenge."

  58. Oh Nice.. Reading the line above reminds me of an "Angelic Evil" in Nigeria.. One that seems like a Robin Hood tale of "Stealing from the Rich and giving to the poor" and i was reminded by it as i read that paragraph.. So permit me to ask...

    A coy makes a million USD from a deal that their workers toiled to get.. In return they pay their workers Naira 20, 000 at the end of each month... One of such Workers finds a way to Fraud the coy of Naira 100, 000 Monthly... What do we call the Worker sir.. A thief or a survivor sir?! Cheers... #Musings of a Confused mind i guess...
