A brilliant new book

I have just finished reading the first book by author Jack Scott, one of my blogging friends.   I've been following Jack's blog perkingthepansies for some time now, and it's one I look forward to every day.  It's a very popular blog and Jack now has thousands of followers from all over the world.

He writes so well, that it was inevitable a book would follow, and with much encouragement from his followers Perking the Pansies, the book, was published before Christmas, and is proving a success already.

I kind of expected the book to be much like the blog.  In a way it is, but it is so much more.  It's funny of course, but it is incredibly moving too.   On reaching the last page, it leaves you wanting more, and I have it on good authority from Jack that he is indeed thinking about the next installment.  I can't wait.

You can read more about the book here

Well done Jack.  Here's to your continued success.
