Well I have been very remiss with the blogging this week . Work has loomed large and I have had to shift my attentions unfortunately. But to help me through I have been devouring a truly glorious book: "The Master" by Colm Toibin. It is a novel based on the life of Henry James. The writing is excellent. Hopefully I will finish it today and have a review up soon.
To other matters, I am having a new large bookcase delivered tomorrow. This is incredibly exciting because currently I have books everywhere. My bookshelf currently houses books of every kind including cookbooks, a lot of non fiction, travel books, and lots of texts related to my work and a shelf devoted to puzzles, games and kids' books to amuse my nephew and niece when they visit. Oh yes and there are a couple of very cramped shelves devoted to fiction.
And I have discovered a couple more really good second hand book shops in my area so keep bringing stuff home. Now it will all have a shelf to call home.
It is a dreary winter's day here, perfect for reading and cups of tea, so I am off to enjoy.
