"Mummy, put them back, we can't read all of those!" Poppet tells me. We're in the library and I'm selecting stories to read her. This looks great. I love that one. Ooo. Another one to try.

"Are you sure?" I ask. She nods.

I bring the ones I've chosen over and, Littlest in her sling on my tummy, we squash into the armchair and begin reading.

Despite Poppet's doubts, we do get through them all, and each one is a treasure.

However, I suspect my other pile of library books might be more problematic. There they are above. I'm finding so many things of interest I'm thinking of putting interesting quotes on Facebook.

All those jokes about a bookworm working in a library being similar to an alcoholic working in a pub? Sadly true. (Although less damaging to ones health.)

And of course with all these books? The one I just stayed up most of a night reading was a completely different kind of book - a young adult fantasy book Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas, the third in a series of six.  I've been waiting on it for months and it was every bit as good as I hoped it would be, which is to say brilliant. Now I am in deep, deep mourning that it will be months again until the next book in the series comes out….

What has everyone else been reading?


  1. Interesting quotes on face book would be great! Some great books in that pile and I always love a big pile of books awaiting reading. Although I always wish I had more uninterrupted time to read them. I'm currently reading Tara Moss' Fictional Woman - fascinating so far!

  2. I've been looking forward to reading Fictional Women - neither my uni library nor my local library have it, so I think I might just bite the bullet and get it from soon as the pile diminishes again.
