Odd Wit and Other Bits Proverbial Adages and Otherwise by Keith Stanley-Mallett

This collection of proverbial expressions is composed of well-known adages handed down through the years, together with additional contributions from the author. Many of the maxims will be familiar to the reader and perhaps evoke memories of their younger days when the sayings were in common usage. Keith Stanley-Mallett has taken a different path with this, his latest book, even so, it makes a delightful and complementary companion to his previous works.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Emma Caddick

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.
