Searching for...

Sunday, 8 June 2014


Definitely a better week collecting books

though that wasn't bad either !

My first community garage sale of the season resulted in 18 books
added to my stacks
[b/c shelves are already filled!]
A half dozen were for my just turned 1 yr old grandson -
what FuN to be shopping for his library!

Letters to Young Churches - JB Phillips with CS Lewis intro
One happy booklover!

Completed : The Art of Arranging Flowers - Lynne Branard

Postern of Fate audiobook - 
{click for review} Agatha Christie's final novel bringing a historical wartime event into the lives of Tommy and Tuppence Beresford's retirement... 

Still enjoying Anne of Green Gables audiobook 
couldn't take it on the roadtrip but it should be completed this week.

And 1/2 through a great new read - Spiritual Misfit - witty writing of debut author, Michelle DeRusha -

and great sense of humour!

How wonderful to pick up some books at a garage sale. Anne of Green Gables is such a great read. I loved her as a youngster - me not her! I loved the TV series too and have it on DVD. Have a great week of reading.

The Art of Arranging Flowers looks and sounds gorgeous ... I have to have it lol

Yay for garage sale book bargains, I love adding to my coming grandchild's library :)
Have a wonderful week and happy reading!

I love book sales as well! Managed to get my hands on a lovely hard cover of Jane Eyre as well (sadly without the dust jacket).

I like the cover of Spiritual Misfit, would love to know what you thought once you're done!

Here's my Monday post

I got a copy of The Art of Arranging Flowers on Netgalley. Hope to get to it soon.

Luv your books, enjoy.:)

Kathy Martin said...

Most weeks are like that for me. I doubt I'll live long enough to read all the books on my stacks. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Greg said...

Always fun to get books at garage sales. you never know what you'll find!I see you have the third book of the Drew Farthering on your list- I've only read the first one. Nice to see that those books are continuing...

Nice pick up on the Jane Eyre. One of my favorites.
I love picking up books for the grandkids. It is never too early to get them reading :)

Have a great week!!

Can't wait to add book to my grandson's library. He will be arriving shortly.

Introverted Jen said...

I adore all the Anne books. I've lost count of how many times I've read them all. Enjoy your week!

Oh--my Jane book is a modern retelling of Jane Eyre.

Martha Eskuchen said...

Ha- resorting to stacks - I can relate. Looks like you got some good finds and have some great reading coming up. Enjoy!

I finally bought a book by Neil Gaiman because everyone tells me "You've got to read him!!!" and I thought I would give it a try. Haven't started yet though because I got sidetracked by an old worn copy of a Janette Oak book that I had -- and I used to love her stories when I was a young girl. So I wanted to read it to determine at what age I can pass to my daughter(s). It will be a few years yet as she's only 7 -- but I cannot wait to share it with her one day!
