For too long I’ve allowed my books to lie unopened, unread, and gathering dust. The book shelves still overflow and all that cannot fit upon them stand in stacked piles around the floor. They have been silent, their wonderful magical worlds quiet and for a time no longer beckoning as the present world filled my days with hustle, bustle, noise and chatter. But they have been quietly biding their time. The bond is too strong for it to ever die and eventually the yearning returns to be with your love again.
The shelves have been dusted down and many happy hours spent finding all the old familiar loves and the smell….oh the smell of those pages, I am in love all over again!
I recently purchased this wonderful cloth bound copy of Pride and Prejudice and I have been happily lost amongst its familiar pages. It’s characters and story as familiar to me as the letters of the alphabet.
Currently Bingley has returned to Netherfield and Elizabeth has just had a letter from her aunt explaining as to how Mr Darcy was present at Lydia’s wedding.
Books that were started and need finishing are Harry Potter and The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, The Emperor’s Tomb by Steve Berry and on my Kindle is Hammered by Kevin Hearne.
This makes up my reading stack for the moment and I will be making weekly Wednesday posts on my progress through these and the many more books that make their way through my reading stack.
