Wet Wednesday.

Its a grey day here, rain, cloud, autumn. The perfect weather to sit with a cuppa and get into a thriller which is why today's book of the day is just that, it can be found HERE and is Jeffrey Deaver's 'The Sleeping Doll'.

I am being forced to stay in anyway waiting for the gas man so if work gets too much I may have a read of something myself!

Sunday.

Hi all, been a busy week but I still don't seem to have got anything done! Had a huge book delivery which is fab but needs sorting, have photographed lots but haven't had time to photoshop them, listing to do too - ahh. Anyway, tomorrow is another day, we've just had lunch now so after a bit of a chill I shall crack on and sort myself out! Hope you are all doing well, have a great rest of the day wherever you are!

Good morning.

Hi all, missed yesterday - sorry about that! Anyway, having had a huge book delivery on Monday night I am knee deep in titles of all kinds, very time consuming but brilliant!

Today's book of the day is Alex Gray's 'The Riverman' and can be found HERE.

Back to the pile I go! Have a good day folks.

I'm back!

The first Monday after a holiday is never an overly cheerful event, but back I am, and work-bound between putting loads of washing in the machine! Had a lovely time as always, lots of walks, one day that we couldn't go out due to a storm, lots of birds and wildlife - wonderful.

Anyhoo, the Book of the day is back too, it can be found HERE and is Alison Brennan's 'Fatal Secrets':

Happy Friday!

Just a quickie between pre-holiday tasks! I have done a 'book of the week' to cover while I am away, it can be found HERE and is R.J Ellory's 'A Quiet Belief In Angels' :

'1939. In the small, rural community of Augusta Falls, twelve-year-old Joseph Vaughan hears of the brutal assault and murder of a young girl, the first in a series of killings that will blight the community over the next decade. Joseph and his friends are determined to protect Augusta Falls against the evil in their midst and form The Guardians. But the murderer evades them and they watch helplessly as one child after another is taken.'

Right - on with packing, will write later if I get the chance!

eBay bits.

Afternoon all, here is the link for the EBAY books I have listed. They are up for 10 days so they won't finish until I get back from holiday and I can answer any questions in time! I will be listing more in a bit but need a bucket of coffee first...

Thursday.

Hi all, just another Thursday but it will be a busy one, lots of listing to do as promised. Today's book of the day can be found HERE - it is Peter Robinson's 'Friend of the Devil'.

'When Karen Drew is found sitting in her wheelchair staring out to sea with her throat cut one chilly morning, DI Annie Cabbot, on loan to Eastern Area, gets lumbered with the case. Back in Eastvale, that same Sunday morning, 19-year-old Hayley Daniels is found raped and strangled in the Maze, a tangle of narrow alleys behind Eastvale's market square, after a drunken night on the town with a group of friends, and DCI Alan Banks is called in. Banks finds suspects galore, while Annie seems to hit a brick wall -until she reaches a breakthrough that spins her case in a shocking and surprising new direction, one that also involves Banks.Then another incident occurs in the Maze which seems to link the two cases in a bizarre and mysterious way. As Banks and Annie dig into the past to uncover the deeper connections, they find themselves also dealing with the emotional baggage and personal demons of their own relationship. And it soon becomes clear that there are two killers in their midst, and that at any moment either one might strike again.'

So, on with work, back later after more tea!

Banana Flapjacks

I made some! There were some very, very, extremely over-ripe bananas to use up and I happened to have some oats...viola! Just had a sneaky one as they were cooling - not too sweet but good and chewy! You didn't need to know all this but I needed to share my homeliness (if that's a word).

I will be putting some books on ebay tomorrow to run for 10 days while I'm away, I can answer any questions when I get back and hopefully some will go, its a tricky time of year, summer is over, and winter - the time for cosying up with a book - isn't here yet! I will put a link up tomorrow.
Off to bed soon - night all!

International Literacy Day.

A huge number of adults in the world cannot read or write, International Literacy Day was set up in the 60's to bring this issue to light and address the need for education. Find details HERE. I know my whole business is centred around books, reading and words, but I simply cannot imagine not being able to read and I truly admire people who live, work and survive day to day not being able to, they are creative and brave individuals! However, the pleasure I get from reading a book is immeasurable and hopefully awareness of illiteracy issues will help bring this joy to everyone.

Speaking of reading, our book of the day can be found HERE today it is 'The Conjurer's Bird' and is a lovely book:

'It seems like a long time ago that Fitz and Gabby were together, with his work on extinct species about to make him world-famous. Now, it's his career that is almost extinct.

Suddenly though, the beautiful Gabby is back in his life. She wants his help tracing the history of The Mysterious Bird of Ulieta, a creature once owned by the great 18th century naturalist Joseph Banks...'

If you fancy a gripping read check out the Rehome-a-Book thriller section HERE great books by great authors!

Redesign -a- blog!

Thought I'd give it a tweak, got a new logo, new background, maybe it's an omen! Anyway, what do you think? I love it, feels fresher and that can't be bad.

Today's book of the day can be found HERE - it is a Start Trek novel today, in a sci-fi mood.
More tea needed, back later!

Hi all,

Another Saturday - although it has been quite a lazy one admittedly! I have updated the book of the day on the website - or rather a book of the weekend as I won't have chance to do it tomorrow. Find it HERE - today it is Washington Irving's 'Tales of the Alhambra' and is a new copy, only £4.25 plus postage!

Anyway, must make a shopping list and brave Tesco...great, have fun folks.

Another beautiful day.

I can't get over the weather - such a gorgeous couple of days, spent the afternoons in my folk's garden just enjoying it, picking veg etc, very tranquil! Off to Scotland on the 11th so am trying to decide which book to take in case the sun doesn't last...rainy days are possible, can I take Lord of the Rings or will it just be too heavy?! decisions.

Anyway, maybe I'll find something from my stock, find it here and see if there's anything you want to read!
