Hello Owls,

Anyone get books in their stocking from santa this year? moi.... three books including an Autobiography plus one Writing Journal. I was tempted to seek out the Kindle for once where you can download books too there, some I know prefer them but I still love the feel of a book and bookshelves to rest them on.

Strange weather we are having at the moment, it was almost like a Spring day yesterday, mild and a gentle sun.

Hot chocolate tonight with some shortbread, plenty for owls too.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Blackbird's Avatar yum to the hot chocolate and shortbreadVery Happy No books received as gifts this year but then again- I usually pick out my own. I am trying, once again, not to buy books right now as there is no place to put them and the temporary stacks are tipping. Thank goodness that I get most of the fiction that I read from the library or I would be buried.

I have a kindle but have only read one full length novel on it that I couldn't get any other way. As much as I love books and paper- I think that tablets are a wonderful invention.

We're escaping the extreme cold that the rest of the country is experiencing- it must be very frightening to be at the mercy of the weather. I hope that people and animals stay as safe as they can until it passes.

Lovely painting tonight although she looks a bit worried. I think the flowers are China Asters- I used to have them in the garden but I seem to have forgotten about them. I'll look for seeds this spring.

With thoughts of spring,
sweet dreams, owls and larks.

Fennie's Avatar Yes, I received books: Bill Bryson's on 1927 in America. Also Hannah Velten's, (Mootia, late of this parish) lovely book on 'Beastley London' And finally a book of London maps down the ages - absolutely fascinating, though I am still ploughing through 'Priscilla' a Portrait of a Woman in Occupied France, by Nicholas Shakespeare. I have a couple of novels to read as well and the PC Book Club Spring read.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar No books this year, my present was a bronze statue of a grizzly bear, he's still safely tucked in his box under the dining table till I move the sitting room furniture around.

Perhaps she's reading a Victorian guide on how to be a "Lady" and realising it's a lot to live up toWink

Cadfael's Avatar I didnt recieve any books either. I did buy myself a d.v.d for Christmas.Anna karenina....A very strange film indeed. The film is made as tho it is all on a large stage Full of film stars but very modernistic filming of a bygone era.

Camilla's Avatar Shall have to check out that book on 'Beastly London', Fennie.

Lucky you Cadfael on receiving Anna Karenina DVD, I began reading the book years ago and never did finish it, it is next on my list.

How lovely FN, know you love your bears.
She is reading Diary of an Edwardian Lady me thinks.Very Happy

Yes, book shelves are full here too BB, I do at times though reserve books from the library, I am though a slow reader and sometimes I have to renew the book more than once. They are Chinese Asters I think too BB.
