i am reading

i recently finished reading ‘ J. M. W Turner’ by Peter Akroyd, influenced by seeing the exhibition at the tate , which ends this month- i wanted to know more about this intriguing man, but especially after seeing the film – the only thing i suggest is having your iPad right next to you whilst you are reading so that you can google the actual paintings as reference – there was definitely not enough pictures in the book to illustrate the description of the paintings.

i am halfway through reading ‘Miss Carter’s War’ by Sheila Hancock, which i am thoroughly enjoying – funnily enough its quite like the film ‘imitation game’, in that its a similar era and addresses the same social issues, but its all through the eyes of a young female teacher.
