A Super Reading Haul!!


Man Wonderful picked up this wonderful, free stash of books locally on his way to the Post Office.  Socially Distanced - I messaged the lady and she left a bag on her doorstep for us to collect.
After wiping with anti-bac wipes and leaving them to dry they look right at home in this corner of the lounge.

I've already started this quick read, and it helped a rainy, cold afternoon pass beautifully.

I finished this little treasure last week: 

Such a beautiful book.  Poignant and very well-written.

And then had a real giggle with this one:

Once I have read a pile of books I offer them on the local page again, and they can give someone else some pleasure.

What are you reading right now, and would you recommend it?

Take care,

  1. Almost finished All The Light We Cannot See. What a book! Hubby going to read it when I am done.

  2. Phillip Kerr writes a good, dark crime novel set in Weimar to Nazi Germany. I enjoy his work far more than I expected to.

  3. Just finished "Wyecombe" by G.M. Malliet - really enjoyed it. I'm now reading "A House Full of Daughters" - 7 generations of women in the family of Vita Sackville-West - a fascinating story.

  4. This is me being pedantic, but I can't read and run after the 'anti-bac' comment. If you're doing that to protect yourselves from a virus such as Covid-19, please be aware that an anti-bacterial wipes won't kill any virus. You'd need an anti-viral for that. Or alternatively, just 'quarantine' the stuff by leaving it untouched for at least 72 hours.

  5. I usually have a murder mystery book on the go, but at the moment I am reading a history book - Dominion by Tom Holland. Very well-written and interesting, but slow going. I notice that you have Dear Mrs Bird amongst your haul. I read that recently and it was a delight from start to finish. Enjoy!
