If walls could talk, mine would say “for the love of God and structural integrity, could you at least CONSIDER a book buying ban?”

I never really gave much thought about how the use of houses might have changed over time but this is super interesting.

Starting this as my #nonfiction for this month. I read primarily #historicalfiction so this should be pretty informative. #nonfiction2018 #history

Also if you look closely at the pet gate to the left, my orange "kitty" (he is 13)is making a rare appearance( Don't worry, he isn't locked up. He can jump the gate at anytime)#catsoflitsy

I loved this book. I think this is a great little history of the home that everyone could enjoy. Lucy Worsley has a way to entertain her readers throughout her book. Can't wait to read more of her books. #nonfiction #history #lucyworsley

I wish I didn‘t have a mountain of schoolwork to do this weekend. I‘ve got some new books that are dying to be read....📚😩

I've been listening to this audiobook while stitching. I wish Lucy had recorded the audio herself, but it's still a really fun and interesting listen. If you saw the television series, the book has a ton of material that the shows didn't cover.

queerbookreader Love it!!!!!!! I just started cross stitching a few weeks ago to make snarky feminist shit I love it 3y
candyflossramparts @lemonlime799 Thanks! I'm working on my next pattern design now. ✊️ 3y
