Book list

These are the books I am taking away

Past -it Notes by Maureen Lipman - very funny

They knew Mr Knight by Dorothy Whipple- this is one from the Persephone Collection which are books that have been republished after being out of print.This one was written in 1934 and gives great insight into the lives of women in the past- fascinating.

Summer on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber.I couldn't resist this one as it is about a knitting class!

The Return by Victoria Hislop.

Remember Me by Melvyn Bragg.

All I need is some sunshine and a comfy chair and a glass of chilled white wine.

Here's hoping.

I am feeling very pleased with myself today because I have written letters to my penfriends and posted them.I have penfriends all over the world and some I have been writing to for nearly 20 years.It is a fascinating hobby because you see changes in the world and hear about them from ordinary people.People who live in South Africa,Estonia,Russia,Argentina,Japan etc.I joined up originally because the intention was to promote international goodwill and I would recommend it as a hobby to anyone.It helps these days with a computer!!


  1. Ooh summer on blosson street sounds good, have you read the Gil Mcneil books 'Diva's don't knit' and 'Needles and purls'? They are really easy to read and I thought very funny (as did my 14 year old who read them after me). Looks like you are organised for your holiday - where are you off to?

  2. And just when do you think you'll have time to read with all that crafty stuff you're taking! I love the Loire Valley and I'm really jealous - have fun!
