A lovely story. Finished in one evening.

  by Gloria Whelan

Old:


JRR Tolkien – how many times have I read this? I’m not sure – at least twice.

This time I am reading s.l.o.w.l.y.

Pen in hand

savouring

lingering

sharing favourite passages with my beloved

laughing

picturing scenes in my mind

thoroughly enjoying.

 

How about you?

Any new books on your shelf?

or

are you re-visiting an old favourite?

Fiction? Non-fiction?

Share the  book- love 🙂

Happy reading!

    Hi Kathie – we just got back from vacation in Palm Springs. Glorious sun, blue skies, warmth and relaxation. My favourite read over the 2 1/2 weeks was "Prayers for Sale" by Sandra Dallas. A must read! A Tender, beautiful story about the relationship of an old woman and a young one in a remote Colorado mining town during the 1930’s. Wonderful! Anyone who enjoys quilting would love this story as the piecing of quilts is at the center of the story.Love your glimpses of Spring and Happy Birthday to you – sounds like it was a good day.Bev K

    There are ten books in the stack next to the bed, all non-fiction, ranging from financial planning to "He’s not that into you" about women and dating. Ecclectic reader: Me.Right now I am working my way through the NCIS television series via DVD, catching back season’s episodes and that has seriously cut into my reading time!

  3. The first book looks good. I have never read Lord of the Rings and have never desired to. Right now I’m reading new ones but when I get past this batch I think I want to revisit some favorites this summer. I’ve been wanting to reread the Little House on the Prairie series. Haven’t read those since I was a kid.

  5. At Goodwill today I picked up a series of books by Elisabeth Aston on Mr. Darcy…I also picked up Among the Shadows by L.M. Montgomery (Tales from the Darker Side) That might be interesting.Have you ever read it?Happy week to you…

  6. I always turn to Atlas Shrugged when I’m in need of a hint of inspiration…and lately I’ve been thinking of picking it up again…I have The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks on hold at the library, but I’m sixth in line for it. I’m very interested in the science part of it, but I don’t think that’s the main thrust of the book.I just LOVE you blog header, Kathie. XO

  7. Listening for Lions looks lovely. And I always love Lord of the Rings. :)I am reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s "Eat, Pray, Love" just to see what all the fuss (and movie) is about. And – as I do every spring – I’m reading the Anne of Green Gables books. 🙂 Something about the green grass, blossoms, sunshine, and birdsong make me think of Anne. I read your blog often, but wanted to comment, since I know you are a fan of Anne. Happy Spring!

  10. Hi Kathie!I’m just about to reread Lord of the Rings for the thousandth time. I’ve got shelves of favorites that return to over the years. At the library, I pick books at random, books I normally wouldn’t buy, and have been quite enjoying the new reads. Can never be without a book at hand!
