Thanks so much for popping in.
I've been so lucky to receive a fabulous pile of books to keep me entertained through the coming months. What a way to start the year!
The first thing I noticed about the following two books was that they felt absolutely wonderful, all soft and silky.
In his new book, The White Road, the same author searches to understand the thousand year history of white porcelain starting in Jingdezhen in China, travelling the world and meeting the people inspired by it.
Since reading the Accidental Tourist, I have become a fan of Anne Tyler's writing and have read quite a few of her books. I have scoured the charity shops for them but had not come across Breathing Lessons which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1989. So I was delighted to receive this for Christmas.
This is her latest book which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2015.
The next two books are completely unknown to me, it is always interesting trying new authors and discovering new favourites.
Lastly, I now have a book full of inspirations for hand made cards, a very valuable resource.
These will all give me hours of pleasure, many thanks indeed.
Hope you also have a nice pile of books to start the year or maybe a file of electronic ones.
Bye for now
