I usually call in at our local library on a Saturday morning, I never know what little gem I shall find there. However, this Saturday I’d got my hopes up that a book I’d ordered would be there and YES, the librarian informed me that my eagerly awaited book had arrived. Sent down from Llandudno Library in North Wales by special request.
I’ve been trying to get a copy of ‘The Magic Apple Tree’ by Susan Hill for quite a while without success. I’ve had it on order from Amazon for months now as I actually wanted a copy of my own that I could keep, however, they too are experiencing problems obtaining it. I’ve had several dates of expected delivery given to me, only for Amazon to subsequently defer them. Well I’ve got it now, I’m thrilled and, a peek inside, assures me that I’ll not be disappointed. Just my sort of book. Susan Hill eloquently describes the many aspects of village life in the English countryside as it changes throughout the four seasons.
Saturday was indeed a lucky day for me at the library, as can be seen from my picture, not only a copy of the Magic apple Tree, but I found two other gems. A lovely book on 'Crazy Quilting ' (please note Anita) and, 'Crafts for a Beautiful Home' produced by the Editors of Victoria Magazine. Both are gorgeously illustrated which has set me in a quandary as to which one I should take on first. However, you may just spy a book mark in one that tells.
Enlarge if you like and you'll see the books more clearly.
