It's not been a great week for reading and Litsying, so finally getting back to this book which I am loving (even though I kind of know the plot already from the film The Handmaiden). My pink port is also going down a treat.

Oryx @julesG Yes! Been to Ardalanish weavers on Isle of Mull and they had lovely natural Aran yarn. So I bought some lovely Hebridean wool for a jumper - and then a fingerless mitten kit with Shetland wool to practice on before I start the jumper. First mitten done (in the picture). I'm going between this book, the knit, and some crochet. 3w

Really worthwhile read. And beautifully written. Really accessible account of what it's like to be a scientist. Having been a scientist for a while myself, it definitely rung true, although she is much more passionate about it than I was (hence why I now write about it, rather than doing it!). The lack of funding for science and the constant struggle for grants seems to be a problem everywhere.
Bonus: I learnt lots of cool things about trees

I loved this. So much to think about now after reading this. And a really strong sense of time and place. I read this on audio (tbh, the narrator wasn't the best, the differences between the character voices were almost non existent, although once I got into it, the differences in the writing style between the girls meant I could identify them quickly) but this is one I think I'll need to get a nice physical copy for the collection.

No idea what this book is about, as I bought on a 99p whim and forgot why. But it seems to get Litsy love so I'm diving in. Paired with a blackberry mint julep, which is so strong, that I may not remember the book even after I actually read it.

Cathythoughts Sounds like a Saturday night plan ♥️♥️👍🏻 2mo

As a former pharmacist I was completely nerding out here. Tenuously book related as apparently this is where Branwell Bronte bought his opium. Now you can buy bath salts.

squirrelbrain Love it in there! ❤️ 2mo
Oryx @squirrelbrain It's gorgeous! I love Haworth altogether. It's so pretty, and gorgeous shops. Shame the weather is so bad today though - just drying off now. 2mo
LeahBergen Awesome! 2mo
JazzFeathers There are really few places that are as fascinating as old pharmacies 😍 2mo

My charity shop find today - this sounds really interesting - hasn't heard of it before but I do like Kevin Fong.

squirrelbrain Ooh, interesting! I like him on the TV too, didn‘t realise he‘d written any books.... 3mo
Crazeedi I love books about the medical field! Fiction or non fiction!!! 3mo
Oryx @squirrelbrain yeah, me either. It's an American book, so I wonder did it not really come out here. Or didn't get promoted. 3mo
