Bookshelf

Throughout my travels in Blogland, I hear of many books which simply ‘jump out’ at me. I try to keep a list, only for it to vanish never to be seen again, and that means I never get to read any of these good books. So, I have a solution. Add a page to my blog! It’s all about feeling good, and good books contribute to that, so why not? Without further ado, here is a list of books that I would like to read some time soon…

    1. I stop and start with reading… I’m currently stopped (and I annoy myself when I’m like this!).

      List-wise, I have now actually got one of these books, and I WILL get around to read it very soon…

  1. I can recommend Wishing, Well by Steven Hall. It’s very good at explaining cosmic ordering in very simple and easy to read terms. I’ve given 2 copies of it away to friends since stumbling upon it… My way of spreading the feel goodness!

    1. I love it when I find books that I have to give away as gifts! Thank you for the recommendation, Bethan, I’ll add it to my list above. It is a book that I’ve noticed on occasions so it must be ‘calling’ to me…!

  2. I’ve been wandering around here half the morning, and here is the place to leave my comment, because my favorite novel in the world so far is on your to-read list!

    Such a pleasure reading your words.

    1. Hi Cameron, and welcome to my little part of Cyber Space! 😀
      I’m intrigued as to your favourite novel, and I’m wondering if it is the same as the one I have actually bought from the list… coincidence happens quite a lot around these parts! I’ll say no more for now, as a little mystery is good I think!
      Thank you for commenting! 🙂

      1. I’ll tell you it’s not Dirk Gently, though if the BBC’s done a decent job interpreting it, I might have to give that one a go. I am loving the television series.
