Sheila Grant

With readers like Sheila life feels that little more special!


"I have to say one of my best decisions was taking out a subscription to newBOOKSmag [as it then was] many years ago.  I am constantly pleasantly surprised at all the new books (from writers I have never previously encountered) thudding through my letterbox.  A wonderful sound!  Thank you for the copy of Emma Donoghue`s latest - although I am unsure why I qualified for this very welcome gift.  I have also received a book from a South American writer to review.  How would I ever have heard of this writer without you all at nb.  I started it last night and consider it a privilege to have received it.  I love it!  

BUT - there is always one.  You are feeding my addiction to books and my shelves are groaning.  He who must be obeyed has kindly installed shelves in every available corner of our house.  Reluctantly I am going to have a book sale at the Writers` club - I do hate parting with books, especially when they are ones I have really loved.  Thank you,  thank you Guy for a magazine that lifts my heart and for the terrific service you all provide.  

I wish you continued success with the magazine.

Yours Sheila"
