'Six women, their loves, laughter and life-long friendship. We meet five American women with their husbands at a Norfolk airbase. While the guys partol the skies, the gals cook chicken pot pie and sneak across the perimeter fence to meet up with Kath, who lives in the freezing fens. Together they share love, laughter, triumphs and tragedies over forty years.'

Our book of the day: The Future Homemakers of America by Laurie Graham

Summer reads

There are some fab books old and new which encompass the air of summer, you can travel the world from your back garden or favourite chair - this is the magic of books. I found a good article here http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/books/features/the-50-best-summer-reads-2003160.html

Time wasting

It is so easy to do, today, after doing a pitiful amount of work I have been seduced by the computer. Spending a huge amount of time on Stumbleupon looking a fabulous photos and sites, tweeting, blogging - although a lot of this is promotion stuff for Rehome-a-book and my writing...at least that's what I'm telling myself!
Anyway, must get on to something productive now...

Oh - and you can get 20% for Easter off at the online shop HERE if you enter the code CCL

Well done to all those who ran the London marathon - I was watching to see if I could spot some friends of mine (Jon, Heath, Abi) and some of the costumes folks were in were great - don't know how you do it though! Top admiration.

The weekend is nearly here - lets hope for nice weather! Although on Sunday I will be mostly in front of the telly - Marathon and the Grand Prix! I have a few friends running in the marathon for a host of great causes and I wish them all the luck in the world!

If you are taking is easy have a wonderfully relaxing time, if you'll be working like me (for some of it) I hope its a productive weekend!

It rained overnight! The weather Gods must read the Rehome-a-Book blog! I can imagine the garden drinking it all in - excellent.

Had a nice afternoon in the garden tending veggie seedlings, but had to do some watering - we are hoping for rain soon, the water-butt is dry. Some overnight rain would be great, it can do it's job and we wouldn't have to deal with umbrellas during the day!

Anyway, if you need some inspiration check out our gardening section HERE! Off to cut some salad leaves for tea...

Sun on a Saturday

I have many many books to list and the sun is out again - dilemma! It is technically the weekend, but they don't have the same meaning for the self-employed, I'm hoping I can strike a happy balance between getting some work done and getting outside for some fresh air and springtime glory! Wish me luck :)

New books

Just collected a box load of donated books - all paperbacks, good titles, different categories so watch the shop for new additions!

Prices are now updated to the new Royal Mail 2011 tariff, the increase is dependant on the weight bracket - some airmail prices over 100g have actually come down a bit!

Postal prices

HI all,
Today in line with Royal Mail's price hike on postage we are having to alter the postal prices on the online shop - would love not to have to but just can't see a way around it. Because we sell books so cheaply - prices starting at 50p - we would lose any of the small profit we make if we kept the postal prices the same - re-homing books is our passion but we have to make a living, minuscule as it is!

Later all.
