Happy New Year

I'm (hopefully) off to Scotland tomorrow and out of Internet range so I'll wish anybody reading this a happy new year full of health, wealth, and happiness now. The dull bit of packing is done so all I need to decide before bed is which books to take with me.

The choices are, on shelf 1 'Bleak House' which the BBC's 'Dickensian' is making me want to read, or on shelf 2 a whole lot of other books which basically add up to that one copy of 'Bleak House' and at least a few of which I might finish. I know a kindle would solve this dilemma, but as I have a pile of books on phone and iPad which I never manage to read  - well maybe not so much. Anyway there's a lot of fun in choosing which books to take away....

See you in the New Year!

  2. I suppose taking them all is not an option? (I always pack too many books.)

  3. I always pack too many books as I never know what type of book I will be in the mood to read: humorous memoir, Anthony Trollope, a mystery. Best to be oversupplied.

    1. It s, and they have to be books, nothing else has quite the same magic.

  4. I'm with those in the take them all camp. It never hurts to be over-prepared, especially when it comes to books!

    Enjoy your time in Scotland and very best wishes for 2016.
