Books - part 1

As posted yesterday, I am planning to read a book or two each month in 2011.

Here is a list of books I am hoping to read in the first six months of this year

They are in no particular order of when I am going to read them (apart from Lian Hearn trilogy) and I may add to this list as I start to tidy up my very messy scrap room where alot of my books are kept.

They are as follows:

Standing in the Rainbow by Fannie Flagg
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
Persuasion by Jane Austen
The Life and Work of Eric Morecambe by Gary Morecambe
Tales of the Otori Trilogy - Across the Nightingale Floor, Grass for His Pillow and Brilliance of the Moon by Lian Hearn
Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyers
Chocolat by Joanne Harris
Encore Valentine by Adriana Trigiani
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

I'm planning to write a summary of my thoughts about the book at the end of each month or whenever I finish the book.

Heres to Happy Reading in 2011 and Good Evening from Pickle Land

Love Lesley xx


  1. Of all that list, I've only read Persuasion lol! It is one of my favourite books, though. In some ways it's my favourite Jane Austen, but Pride and Prejudice is hard to beat... I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on each title :-)

November round up- Scrapbooking retreats ahoy!!

November has been a strange yet good month. I have been made redundant from my job in local government (my last day at work was Friday 25th - official day of leaving is tomorrow 30th). And though I'm worried about finding another job, I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time (whilst looking for another job) and doing the many things on my list of things to do - like sort out my craft room, Christmas shopping, JYC 2011, a good clear out and doing a little cooking/baking.

Leading up to last Friday was a mix of emotions and though I am not sad to leave my place of work (it feels the right time to leave), I am sad not to be working with some people. But you can not stay in a place just for the people, and I've got to do the right thing for me for once.

However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
