As seen - Me Reading !!!!

Well a very unusual occurrence happened today, I found a book I couldn't put down. The Gingerbread Woman by Jennifer Johnston. I haven't finished it yet because I had to put it down to do a bit of housework and I also wanted to get the weekly challenge from UKScrappers done, but I know that I will be going back to reading it later in bed probably.
So my photo for today is THE BOOK

I had picked it up at the sale one Thursday and dumped it on the side, and promptly forgot it, it had got buried under junk mail which was beginning to form a mountain on my hall table. I thought it was time to remove the mountain from inside to the outside and put it all in the recycling box, and there at the bottom of the pile was THE BOOK I don't remember picking it up, I don't remember reading the blurb but I must have thought it looked interesting and worth trying.
The blurb, when I read it this morning
On a rainy afternoon on Killiney Hill a young man walking without his overcoat, happens upon a woman gazing out over Dublin bay, standing perilously close to the edge. From their testy encounter develops a remarkable friendship which will enable each to face afresh their very different, damaged pasts, and to look towards the future

I have finished the weekly challenge but it is too dark to photograph it tonight so I'll share this tomorrow.

Today I am grateful for the book
and for Skype when I can not only talk to my daughter way up north but also see my grandsons and they can see me

Thanks for the recommendation. We're travelling to Ireland this summer, and I love reading books set in the places where we are staying.

Yay for Skype! It was fab when DH was working in Stockholm for such a long time, and having to stay away for 2 weeks at a stretch. He could even play "Warhammer" battles with J, over the internet.
It is a wonderful tool; how fabulous to be able to see and talk to your family, even when they are a bit too far away to visit every week.

Thanks for the book recommendation and I'm glad you've been enjoying it yourself. I sometimes find a book I "can't put down" - usually on a day when the laundry really should be done and the Boy then complains he has run out of socks (bad mum!).
Have a lovely time finishing your book.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
