You Are What You Read – Favourite Book(s)

You've Got Mail

I have always loved this quote which I think I first heard in the Rom-Com film, You’ve Got Mail staring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, released in 1998. It is probably one of my favourite films and I am not much a TV fan, books are more my thing. I wish I could place though the actual quote though because I am sure it is not from the film, but even Google failed me 😦 If you know the original source of the quote please leave a comment.

I sat at the end of last year to devise a plan of a regular blog posts because even though I am busy, I have missed it. Sometimes you just need to sit and write and share.

Over the coming weeks I am going to share my favourite books, or books that I have especially enjoyed and I hope you enjoy them too. Some may have featured here before, others will be new to the blog. Some a recently published, others old favourites, some are non-fiction, others are genealogical or historical.

First will be published tomorrow. They won’t be up on a regular day, instead they will be random across the week for the whole of 2018.

Happy reading!

  1. I’m looking forward to this series. I have made a goal for 2018 to read more so I am on the lookout for some new books. Can’t wait to see what makes the list!
