World Book Day


Today, 3 March 2011 is World Book Day so what better way to enjoy it than to share the book I'm reading with you.

It's called "Home by Julie Myerson" and is a book my sister bought me many, many, many moons ago and I started to read but got sidetracked with something else and never finished.


Ever thought about all the people who lived in your house before you? Julie Myerson did, and set out to learn as much as she could about their fascinating lives. This is the biography of a house, the history of a home. It's an ordinary house, an ordinary home, and ordinary people have lived there for over a century. But start to explore who they were, what they believed in what they desired and they soon become as remarkable, as complicated and as fascinating as anyone.
What are you reading?

  1. Sounds good - have you been watching Marchlands which is about 3 families which have lived in the same property?

  2. I did enjoy this (although the Myerson family is no longer such a happy one), I think mainly because of the family history aspect of it.
