Hello and welcome to my blog!  I hope you will enjoy your stay and return for an ongoing conversation about books and other comforting things. 

I am usually based in Rochester, England although I am currently residing in the Highveld in South Africa.  I have a particular fondness for British cosy fiction at the moment but I will generally enjoy any well-written book that inspires, comforts or educates through fiction. My tastes can be eclectic but I unfortunately do not seem to read as much I as used to! This blog will serve to remedy that and to provide a platform for sharing the love of books with others in the book-o-blogosphere... with the occassional post about knitting and vegan food.

Painting above is The Reader (1910) by Frank Weston Benson.  The painting in my header is Woman in Hammock by Sandra Hayen.

My previous template contained a header with the painting entitled The New Novel (1877) by Winslow Homer.  Archived 20110508.
