The journaling on my layout describes my obsession quite clearly, here you go:

This stack of books may look innocent on its face, but once you’ll learn all these books are new purchases (the four at the top are from today) you may look at it differently.
I’m obsessed with books.
As you can see my taste is very eclectic. I like many genres and always enjoy a good book to get lost in.
I am currently reading “We The Living” by Ayn Rand and in this stack there are:

  1. The Source by Michener
  2. Outlander by Gabaldon
  3. Never Let Me Go by Ishiburo
  4. The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo by Stieg
  5. Walden by Thoreau
  6. The Portrait Of A Lady by James
  7. By Fire By Water by Kaplan
  8. Hearts in Atlantis by King
  9. She’s Come Undone by Lamb
  10. All Quiet On The Western Front by Remarque
  11. Scarpetta by Cornwell

My addiction is well fed and well nourished.
If only I had more time…


Have you grabbed a good book lately? Please, do share!
[There’s a good chance I’ll get it if I don’t already have it…]

    She’s Come Undone by Lamb

    Oh, wow! I read Hearts in Atlantis and loved it but it seemed like no one else had ever heard of it!!! Great to see a couple of fellow aficionados. I am a huge book lover with eclectic taste. I also recommend The Help. I loved The Green Mile, The Elegance of the Hedgehog, anything by Jodi Picoult, anything by Madeline L’Engle (even the children’s books), The Summerhouse, The Poisonwood Bible, To Kill A Mockingbird, Golda, and the list could go on and on!!! I love to read. How could I possibly get a real job when I have so many books to read, pages to scrap and cross stitch charts to stitch!

      I’ve read “Green Mile” and “To Kill A Mockingbird” and LOVED them both. You are also the second one to suggest “The Elegance Of The Hedgehog” to me, so I already added it to my wish list 🙂

      I can see you are a fellow book lover by your reply, filled with a flowing stream of beloved books and authors. We people cannot pick just one, can we…

    What a lovely page! Now I want to do one for myself…… as soon as all my books and stash arrive in France from England!

    I’ve recently read “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” and absolutely loved it. Written from the perspective of a 15-year-old autistic boy, it give you wonderful new ways of thinking about how the mind works.

    Also loved “The Unbearable Lightness of Scones”, one of the Scotland Street novels by Alexander McCall Smith. I’m IN Edinburgh when I read these novels!

    Am currently engrossed in (and hopping between) “The Lady in the Tower” by Alison Weir and “Wolf Hall” by Hilary Mantel. Going very slowly because I don’t want to finish either of them!!!

    Tina – I’m with you. So many books to read, stitches to stitch, pages to scrap, recipes to try…………….

    Avital – I’m delighted to have come across your delicious blog and will now be adding it to my favourites!

      First, thank you so much for your sweet comment!

      As for the books, they all sound great and I will look up each and every one of them.

      I have heard about “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” but wasn’t sure I’d like that. My nephew is autistic and my sister, his mom, could not really connect with the book. I will give it another look, though.
