It is a glorious sunny Sunday here in the south west of England. There is a real feel of spring is in the air! The last few weeks I have been busy contemplating, reading, writing and reviewing.
I received a Kindle from my husband for Christmas who I think was under the impression that it would reduce the amount of books I have. I have not had the heart to tell him, that it has not worked! I still have piles of real books and a rather hefty amount on my Kindle. My contemplation is how to catalogue them? Any thoughts and comments gratefully received.
I took part in the TLC book tour this week by reviewing the latest in the Elm Creek series by Jennifer Chiaverini. You can read that review HERE. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to the next in the series. I read somewhere, that Jennifer has signed a new 3 book deal with her publisher which is excellent news!
I have also reviewed one of the books that I received for Christmas. Forgotten Bookmarks by Michael Popek. There was something about this book, from the minute I saw the cover I knew I wanted to read it. Well, I have spent the last couple of months reading cover to cover and then dipping in and enjoying some of the details again. That review is HERE.
For this week’s Weekend Cooking post I read and shared from this delightful little book. I purchased this last October whilst on our second visit to Jersey. A beautiful Island, with an amazing history and the closest the German Army got to British shores. The experiences of the German Occupation is widely recorded across the island. You can read about my trip HERE and read about this book HERE.
I have also read and looked at a few e-books recently and these will be reviewed over the coming week.
I am almost at the end of two month long writing events – Family History Writing Challenge and the NaBloPoMo Challenge. The word for February was Relative. I have written both every day, but they all need proof reading before posting to my blog, so there will be an influx this week.
