Books


Much time spent reading
Was her plan
It has not happened
Winter is not over
Maybe it will still happen

I currently am reading two paper books and one book on the Kindle (not asked for) I got for Christmas. Still another pile or so to go through before I decide whether I will now go totally electronic.

I see so many books that I have read on your shelves. I need to find a really good book to hold my interest.. after the holidays.I have, however, been reading the sweetest little book. It's called A Mystic Garden, by Gunilla Norris. I've read some quotes of hers, in the past, on your blog.It's only 100 pages and talks of spirituality in gardening throughout a whole year. Very quick reading.When I first picked it up, I looked at the author and thought...Hmmmm, this one sounds familiar, and then I thought about where I had heard of her.I hope that the New Year brings you everything that you hope for...Balisha

Tabor, my daughter received a Kindle. At the present time I need to see books and feel them.
Good luck in your decision.
Balisha, I have many more not shown and need to start reading them over. Have only kept my favorites.
Thank you both for visiting me this early morning.

I see we have some of the same books. It was fun looking at your books, and knowing we must think alike

I just finished History of Love by Nicole Krauss. It was hard to get into, but, I cried when I finished it...
Now on to Harry Potter 4, so I can discuss with the kids, both young and old kids....

Maybe you will do what your belly and your heart tell you to.

Beverly, we have a lot of the same interest - except facebook :)
Kaveri - I will :) it tells me to sit in the old leather chair and not move....

LauraX said...

The more I write the less I make time to read...I too need to find a balance:)

Nan said...

I LOVE seeing your books! I couldn't quite read all the titles but I saw some I have read and loved like The Shell Seekers and the Clothesline book.

One Woman's Journey said...

LauraX - my desire balance.
Nan, The Shell Seekers - my favorite of all :) love this book.

All in good time, my friend. Things happen in their own good time.

One Woman's Journey said...

Dear Sharon, thank you - also for the word "unafraid" ...

Here is a post dear to my heart, book lover that I am. It was absolutely grand to see all the lovely books in your images.

Like you, my friend, I have not managed to indulge in hours and hours of reading so far this winter, and I find myself wishing for them. Perhaps we shall be granted those hours in the near future.

I typically have 6-9 on the go at one time. Every so often, I think I should settle in and read one at a time...but never happens!

I just love the feel and look and smell of books. And the way they look, lying around the house. I'm always comfortable in a house scattered with books (and I love to see what others are reading!)

One Woman's Journey said...

Dear Cate and Deborah - I feel so special when you comment. I know how busy you both are. You are both so talented and admired much!!

Balisha said...

Just stopped to say hello. Do you have your nose in a book :) Have a great weekend. Balisha ((hugs))

LauraX said...

Haven't heard from you in awhile...hoping all is well and you are simply resting.

I am surrounded by book lovers- so I am familiar with the shelves of books. It looks like you have a cozy collection. Your books are patient join them when you are able! hugs -teri

Stopping by to check on you. You are in my thoughts and prayers this day.

Making new friends is a delight. Through your lovely blog I may visit you and become acquainted with your ways. We gain particular insights from each other and this broadens our vision of life. As I grow older I find this such a comfort!

One day I hope to share pictures on my blog.

Take care of you! :)

Blessings!

I made the pictures bigger to see the book titles - so many the same. Your shelves are beautiful. Happy reading.
