I don't know when it started for me, the love affair with books that is? I remember when I was maybe in grade 6 at school and I started a note book. I drew it up with columns and would write the date I started the book title author all the usual suspects and then I would give it a rating and a comment. I totally loved Trixie Beldon and any pony club books oh and the diary of Anne Franks. I wonder what ever happened to that old book? I do know that I can curl up on the lounge with the rugby or a movie on and not hear much but read and be happy with my family by my side. I know that I can be rather obsessed and carry the latest or even not so latest book around with me like a child carries it's dolly. But in all my years and love of books there has never been an author quite like this one to hold my attention and re read over and over again. So at least 2 years ago when her last book came out I waited hoping it would be under the Christmas tree, and oh well it wasn't there but I could pick one up or borrow it from the library. But time got away from me and here I am two years later totally engrossed in Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon..............its just at the pinnacle point in the story and my imagination has gone off with Claire and Jamie to a time ... well anyway if you have never read this Author start at the beginning and find Crosstitch- amazingly nothing to do with sewing. When I lived in the Barossa Valley I went to a sit n sew group and all the girls were reading these books so as I've said earlier an avid reader, pick me I want to try these books out. ahhhhh and I've never looked back. One of these ladies was pregnant at the time she named her new baby boy..........yes you guessed it. Jamie.
My friend Michelle at lemonjellie she was with me as I started on this journey of books, I had forgotten all this Michelle.
Anyway I should write a book recommendation list. I totally love people of the book by Geraldine Brooks. Phillipa Gregory and all the Queens books, and I could go on. Please leave me your latest book that you loved.
cheers n happy reading and stitching so many book, fabric etc not enough time
