How perfect is that sentiment? It's like Mr. Trollope took a peek through my windows on a Sunday morning. (Which would be doubly hard, considering we live on the third floor and, well, he's been dead for more than 130 years—WAIT. He totally ghost peeped. What a creeper.) My Sunday ritual consists of exactly these items: my sofa, a book and a cup (or two) of coffee. It's my time to recharge.
Last month, two blogger friends—Who've I've now met in real life! It's so fun to meet online friends.—Amanda of Dragonflight Dreams and Laura of Hello, Clementine! posted their answers to the A to Z Book Survey. (Amanda's | Laura's) I'm a little late in taking part, but I was re-inspired when I found the above quote on Pinterest. So, read on friends, and let me tell you about my books.
