CJ from Above the river mentioned in a comment earlier, that she would like to browse through my bookshelves. So I figured I'd do a post on books. We love to read and have quite a number of books throughout the house. When our children were small we had even more as I have never felt that you can have too many!
Here is a peek at some of them.
My sewing books which I make good use of'
craft and home books
Good old Harry Potter - some of my favourite children's fiction!
The bookcase in our guestroom which houses,
Poetry and historical
My collection of Miss Read
and Rosamunde Pilcher
Currently on my bedside table as mentioned yesterday
Our living room bookcase
CS Lewis collection and reference books
And of course, the children's books
In the playroom
I love books and can't imagine a home without them. I am very picky about what I read though. I don't use bad language and therefore don't like to read it in my books. This is getting harder, which is why I stick with the classics and some old standbys which I will read over and over again. I must admit to liking British authors above others (slightly biased there!) I also have a Kobo reader and have quite a lot of books on that. I love the convenience for travel and sometimes in bed I will read from it, but nothing beats holding a real book in my hands. I love the feel and the smell of books. I could get lost in a used bookstore for hours. Our middle son Andrew is exactly the same way. Whenever we would go on vacation he would always want to spend lots of time in bookstores, much to the chagrin of the others!
Beef & vegetable stew for dinner tonight and leftovers in the freezer. Love winter comfort food!
