I've just finished reading Forever Liesl by Charmian Carr. The Sound Of Music has to be one of my all time favourite films, and this book, written by the actress who played Captain Von Trapp's eldest daughter, Liesl, is full of anecdotes about the making of the film, and how it changed her life. I really enjoyed reading it.
Also in February, I read The Other Side of the Dale by Gervase Phinn. This was a fun book which made me chuckle throughout, recounting tales from his time as a school inspector in the Yorkshire Dales.
I'm now reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I'm not very far in but I'm already enjoying it immensely. This book has been made in to a film, but I'd much rather read a book before I see the film rather than the other way round.
On my trips round the charity shops, I've managed to pick up a couple of books from The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. I haven't yet read the first book in this series but it's in my pile of books waiting to be read, so I might as well pick up any other books I see from the series. These only cost me 49p each from a local hospice charity shop, and they look like new.
I also managed to find the second Gervase Phinn book, Over Hill and Dale.
I'm so pleased that I set myself the challenge of reading a book each month in 2012, it's certainly renewed my love of reading.
