The first one he read was Mrs Scrooge by Carol Anne Duffy. Not an author I had heard before - or a poem I knew. However, as I've said many times English has never been high on my agenda, so listening to James is educational ... Thank you, again, James!
He then read the first 2 chapters of Ghost Story by Jim Butcher. Now, this is a story I know ... but again, started by hearing James read book 1. He didn't do this audio book, so had said he would read a bit ... again, no cameras permitted. About 1/2 way through he started frowning, and then announced that the paper wasn't fully printed, so he would go and collect a copy of the book. He returned a few moments later with the book ... and reading glasses. Just wish I dared have sneaked a photo. It was lovely to hear Harry speaking again ... the series are great, but James brings that extra element to them.
