Books and pics

Whilst my sewing takes a backseat because of my impending move, I thought I would entertain you with some recent photos I have taken, and some musings about books read. I am going through a real book phase. I think it is an escapism thing, stops me thinking about other stuff. I know I have a list of my recent reads elsewhere on the blog (which reminds me, I must update those!), but I must say that of the books I have read this year, I definitely recommend The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

I couldn't put it down and it prompted me to buy Zusak's other book, The Messenger. I don't think it is as good as The Book Thief, but I enjoyed it as well.

My next challenge is to work out which books to take to Hawaii with me. Anyone got any recommendations??

Now onto some pics. These are some random things I have photographed in the past couple of weeks.
