On Fridays I do my bit to promote Indie authors/bloggers.  Instead of Click & Run this week I thought I’d do something a bit different, and so today authors or bloggers can share a link in the comments to an Indie book they’ve read and enjoyed (not their own).  They can even add their review too, if they’ve written one.

If you see a book featured that interests you, please give it a tweet or perhaps even buy it. You’ll be doing an Indie author a huge favour!

For my part I’m sharing a link and my review of Jim Webster’s book ‘Fancy Meeting You Here‘, which I read earlier this year as part of my Goodreads’ 2019 Reading Challenge:

My Review:

I always enjoy Jim’s farming stories, as he has a way of telling a tale that is entertaining but informative at the same time. I’ve learned a lot about sheep while reading this book, and always wondered how on earth a sheepdog learns to do what it does – but I know now that a new dog will learn from an old one. There were a few chuckles too, particularly at how Jim dealt with unwanted salespeople. There were a couple of shocks regarding how the price of cattle has decreased over the years, and also sadly how the number of UK dairy farms has dropped from 196,000 in 1950 to about 10,000 now.

Jim has spent his whole life farming and has acquired a wealth of knowledge, some of which he shares in this delightful book.
