#Movember #day1 #Cherish With all my health problems, the fact I can escape into books is a fact that I cherish very much.Not everyone has that,there are far too many people in this world who cannot read.Something I‘ve never told before,my hubby is one of those people.It‘s now a shame he‘s carried for over 45yrs. I‘ve tried to teach him, he‘s much better than he was before we met,but he struggles every day.I‘m hoping to get him a tutor this year.
I couldn‘t resist buying this book, being completely drawn in by this cover.
I have so many great memories of reading and visiting the library as a child. I loved series such as the Sweet Valley series, Saddle Club and later Point Horror when I was young and had a note book where I‘d write lists of them and tick them off as I read them.
Share your childhood reading memories Littens!
#7days7covers #covercrush #day4 This beautiful cover belongs to my No1 Read Of 2018. The author writes about her memories of reading as a child, talking about the books that changed her life. It made me so nostalgic about the books that made me the reader I am today, I spent most of my childhood hiding from my mother, my nose in as many books as I could get my hands on. I thank the universe for my local library & my favorite aunt every day still.
I loved this. Spend the whole time listening with a smile on my face as I remembered childhood books. And a few I hadn't read are now added to my TBR. If you spent your childhood with a book in front of your face, I really recommend this.
Been painting for 3.5 days now! Really not sure what I was thinking when I decided to paint my entire downstairs of my house (as I have a couple of weeks off at home before going on holiday and starting new job). Thank goodness for audiobooks! This one is bringing back many memories of childhood reading. Loving it! Also pictured, my painting helper #dogsoflitsy
My 2019 reading progress. I‘m such a slow reader 😅 It doesn‘t help that I often feel too tired after work that I don‘t have the energy left to read. The phrase “Born to read, forced to work” rings true to me 😆
Goodreads reading challenge progress: 25/40
How‘s your 2019 so far? 📚
At first i found this book gripping, it made me laugh in places and i thoroughly enjoyed it, but.. about halfway through the book, it seemed to get boring. The footnotes were longer than the chapters sometimes and by the time i had read the notes I'd near forgotten what Lucy was initially writing about..
Maybe it's because I've not been well and distracted, maybe if i took the time to reread it i would enjoy it all, but for now I'll leave it..
A touching childhood memoir and a beautiful love letter to reading ❤️ Lucy Mangan writes gorgeous sentences and perfectly captures the life of a young bookworm! While we come from different generations and cultures and our childhood book canon is vastly different, I found parts of myself and my youth in these pages. One of my favorites this year. 📚
Honestly, I can‘t believe how busy my life has become! Nonstop for the past two weeks or so, and I‘ve barely had any time to read 😭 Taking half an hour to myself this morning - hopefully will be able to catch up with #shakespearereadalong and #buddyreadWOT very soon! ❤️
"My own childhood picture books have, alas, long since vanished; victims, I can only presume, of my mother's constant mission to maintain a house that shows no sign of human habitation."
I sent this quote to my momma, but she wasn't amused ?
Happy Sunday, littens! It‘s a bit foggy here in England, and it‘s kind of reminding me of home - hence the mug! 🌁☕️ I‘m excited to spend the day relaxing with Bookworm; it‘s been on my TBR for awhile so it‘s about time! 📚

I‘m having prescriptions filled. The pharmacy tech looked at my list and apologized: “That‘s going to take at least 45 minutes. Sorry. “
No worries, pharmacy person! I got it covered. 😄

Thanks a lot Litsy! For increasing my to be read stack! This came in the mail just now. I thought I knew about most books out there that are- about books! Thanks to you since I joined Litsy two weeks ago I have probably ordered four books. I‘m not sure if this is a blessing or a curse yet. #booksaboutbooks
I don‘t need a crystal ball, I know that my place will look like this. Just give it a few more years.... 😅
Woohoo 31! How about all of you?
I enjoyed this "gloriously opinionated" (from the blurb) book about Mangan's childhood reading. Having read some of them myself, I found it interesting to compare our opinions. This book made a great read for a Saturday afternoon; I devoured it like young Lucy would devour books.
