When nothing but a book will do...
During a brief lull in activity after a very hectic weekend of decorating and being generally too busy, I was sitting in the conservatory listening to the birds (and the rain thundering on the roof) and cast my gaze towards one of the bookcases. A number of as yet un-read items jostled for position shouting 'pick me, pick me'. From the pile on the floor floor came a dull roar of other recent literary purchases urging 'let me entertain you...'.
But on the shelf behind me lies the next book on the TBR list, whispering promises of 'come away with me...'
In a busy day being bombarded with images and sounds on the TV, in the shops, even in the internet - sometimes it's so good to just leave the world behind and get lost in a book!
