Birthday Books

birthday booksThanks to a very generous and only slightly belated birthday gift from my brother (Hi! Mark), I was able to order some books that I have been wanting for quite a while. They have been slowly trickling in by mail and I got my last one yesterday. When I have a spare minute, I have been really enjoying flipping through them. At the moment, I have so many projects that I have to get done before Christmas, but as soon as they are done, I can’t wait to sit down and have a good read. What are you reading right now, and loving?

    Books are my favorite present – they just keep on giving and giving – and that looks like a super pile of treats to look forward to! I am reading ‘Our Farm’ by Rosie Boycott at the moment (amongst others – I always seem to have 4-5 books on the go at any one time) and although I have only just started it I think it is going to be a good read. Enjoy the rest of your weekend Mx

  6. Now that looks like a brilliant reading stash to me.
    I absoloutely love Pippi Longstocking and Lauren Child’s illustration is so cool too!
    Enjoy and Happy Birthday Jennifer!

    Thanks everybody, I can hardly stand to look at the stack of books at the moment, because I have so many other things I need to get done before I can truly enjoy them. Hope you guys are having a great weekend.

    Your books look utterly delicious. I just received the book The Sweater Chop Shop that I’m hoping to get into this week. Happy Belated Birthday.

    Wow…those books look fantastic! I love anything by Jane Brocket and I really would love to have Homemade and also the other book by Elspeth Thompson…Wonderful Weekend book. Lucky you!!!!!

    Hmmm… do you know, reading this, I realise that I haven’t really got my teeth into a book for ages. I am working so hard at the moment that when I go to bed I just flop, and the very idea of reading in the day time at the moment (running a toy shop just a few weeks before Christmas!) is almost laughable really!

    And yet I love reading.

    This is not right!!

    Ah well, we have a little holiday booked after Christmas and I shall take a big heap. A nice mix of children’s books, novels (afraid am quite fond of a grisly murder!) and I love teenage fiction too… always have, ever since I was, well, a teenage!

    Love Charlotte
