I don't like Kindle. I like a proper book I can hold, smell & with pages I can turn & they rustle.

I read Lady Chatterley's Lover years ago in my teens, ignoring the bad words it was a very good story. The film was OK.

My latest to read, which arrived this morning is Alan Titchmarsh's The Haunting.
Best wishes,
Tiff
