The Great Gatsby – By F. Scott Fitzgerald

Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary “The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.” Think of beautiful long hazy days, lounging on freshly cut green grass, think of serene women in long floating gowns and well-respected men in starched white linen suits, […]

The Necklace – By Cheryl Jarvis

Posted by Fliss: Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary “In the end, a diamond necklace did make a statement, not about wealth and status, but about the needs that cross cultures and link generations, the connections that transcend time and place…” When I was first given this title to EQA, I assumed it was fiction – so astonishing […]

The Hobbit – By J R R Tolkein

Posted by Fliss: Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary This book needs no introduction. It is quite simply one of the most wonderfully enchanting, touching and exhilarating fantasy novels of all time. It is very much a case of curiosity (nearly) killed the cat for the inquisitive Bilbo Baggins, as he, at first somewhat reluctantly, embarks on a […]

A Woman of Substance – Barbara Taylor Bradford

Posted by Fliss: Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary “Success is the best revenge” You said it sister! Emma Harte, our lead protagonist, explodes out of my ipod with pragmatic defiance.

Author Spotlight – Darcey Bussell

What little girl didn’t want to be a ballerina growing up? I know I did. The chic shoes, the cute tutu, the tidy bun, completely encapsulate what being a girl is all about! Unfortunately, I’m about as graceful as a goat with cramp and would probably resemble more of a lumbering bear rather than a […]

Rumi: Whispers of the Beloved – By Maryam Mafi & Azima Melita Kolin

Posted by Fliss: Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary “Be thirsty heart, seek forever without a rest” This is not your ordinary ebook.

Temptation – By Dermot Bolger

Posted by Fliss: Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary Now the one thing that is truly fantastic about being a HarperCollins EQA-er is that you get to read such a variety of different ebooks, spanning all genres and all eras. Normally I would avoid books with that dreaded ‘chick-lit’ tag but an EQA-er’s gotta do what an EQA-er’s gotta […]

High Rise – By J.G. Ballard

Posted by Fliss: Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary “Later, as he sat on his balcony eating the dog, Dr Robert Laing reflected on the unusual events that had taken place within this huge apartment building during the previous three months.” From the very first line of this bizarrely dystopian novel it is clear Ballard is out to […]

Socrates – Philosophy In An Hour

Posted by Fliss: Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary While reading this (what seems to be) scholarly ebook about one of the most famous Philosophers in history, I was immediately transported into the pioneering world of Ancient Greece. Socrates was the first of the three great Athenian philosophers and is quite deservedly branded as one of the founders […]
