Your Favourite Books...




There is no time to craft just for fun and evolution at the moment and I am starting to climb the walls. As a result I thought I would post pictures of the things I am thinking about, colours I would like to use, projects I would like to finish and paintings I would like to add blossom to.
I am in desperate need of good books too (I am having a rare shortage) and would love, love, love to hear about your best reads of 2009/10. Please leave any suggestions in the comment section and I will be eternally grateful. In fact, I will post a list of my own as well. Thank you!!!

  2. Some of the books I enjoyed in 2009 were (and I can't remember authors so well but you could look them up!), The Good Parents, The Tall Man - Chloe Hooper, The Book Thief, Careful, The Turning - Tim Winton,there's a few to start with! Do you belong to your local library? That's a good place to pick up something new xo

  6. Kate - I would not consider myself a reader but I did read a great book last summer - The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs. I really enjoyed this book and have bought the sequel to read sometime. This is a great story about a knit shop and all that happens with a group of friends.

  8. I just finished two books by Rose Tremain--Music & Silence (my new fave) and the equally wonderful The Colour. I bet you'd love them! Also one of my best reads from last year was Daughter of Fortune, by Isabel Allende. They are all super, intelligent, soulful historical reads...:o)
