Snow-bound...

A Winter Idyl

Winter offered a snowy cold day.
A time to make a pot of tea, and curl up with a new book.
A time to nest for one last moment.........


Time for reading by Judy Gibson

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.

You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.

Books can be dangerous. The best ones should be labeled “This could change your life.”

I love books too. I usually have two on the go, one downstairs and one upstairs. They will usually be of different kinds: one exciting, the other comforting. Right now I'm reading Labyrinthe by Kate Mosse.
Blessings, Star

Have you seen the BBC adaptation of Cranford with Dame Judi? It's fabulous, I ordered it from Amazon and it so lives up to the book.
