This Booker Prize winner is my Christmas present to myself, this, along with Donna Tartt's Goldfinch. Have carved out some time and a nest to read in, and have already curled up for a reading festival. Only trouble is my Up band vibrates every half hour if I haven't moved. Apparently they have a sleep mode but no reading mode! I keep it happy by getting up from my reading nest and walking on the spot for a few pages. All this while the Christmas lunch is roasting. It's a multi-tasking fiesta chez moi.
