New reading material

Recently, whilst Blurking!!, I found a few book titles I thought I might like, jotted them down on a scrap of paper and headed off to the library.  Imagine my horror when I found out that none of the books on my list were in any of the local libraries.  Something to do with most of them being from the USA or Canada.

Time to rethink the list.  I can't remember which blog it was on but Dissolution by C J Sansom was mentioned and duly noted.  A week later on World Book Day at school, I noticed that the Headteacher was reading the same book.  Then the following week my Mum tells me a good book to read is Dissolution.  Coincidence?

Another trip to the library only to find that the book is out and only book 4 is on the shelf.  Now I don't know about you, but I like to read my Who Dunnits in sequence!!  Determined not to break my New Year's Resolution of not buying books but using my local library (the only one I've ever stuck to), I resigned myself to waiting for the book to come back and take it out then.

What a nice surprise it was last week when my sister came to stay and  handed me the first three books.  All for me as a Just Because Present ♥♥♥  Love you Sis x


  1. Hi Liz Sweetie...
    Oh how sweet of Ruth to bring you the first 3 books in the series of the book you wanted to read. How wonderful that is.

    Speaking of Ruth, I have to tell you that the photo Samuel took of the two of you together, is priceless. I love it. What a wonderful gift of love to each other. You really do look so much alike.

    No blurking for me either. When I visit, I don't just read, you know me, I have to comment. I love saying hello. Such a wonderful gesture and it SO makes ones day a happy one. Thank you for stopping by sweetie. I lost all of my dashboard. Blogger stole it, and it has not came back. The only way I can visit my blogger friends is to go back and look through icons in past posts. It takes so much time.

    Have a glorious week sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  2. Here's my comment, no blurker for me!
