Snuggle up with these

I am trusting that the post options with blogger truly do work.
This week is filled with Dr appointments (not for me, for my son) so I thought I would write a couple of quick posts while I had the chance. If you are reading this on Jan. 28th, it worked. Yay!


There is nothing better than sitting down with a good book. O.k, I can think of a few things but.....won't go there!

I have enjoyed every book that Frances Mayes has written.
A Year in the World is exceptional.
If you love travel and reading about getting off the beaten path, this one is for you.
If only I could visit all the marvelous places she has had the pleasure of seeing!


Mediterranean Summer by David Shalleck with Erol Muntz is a must read.
The story is not only entertaining but there are MANY recipes.
The forward was written by MARIO BATALI (love him).
Imagine sailing around the Mediterranean as a chef on a yacht.
What an adventure.

Too Much Tuscan Sun (confessions of a Chianti tour guide) by Dario Castagno with Robert Rodi,
is charming and very funny.
After reading this, I am ready to take a tour with Dario.
If you are in a bookstore soon, take a look at the back cover. He is a cutie!

I hope everyone is having a good week. I'm hoping to visit soon.

I love the delayed post option. Your books sound great. I'll add them to my list to read...someday...when I've finished studying!

Hope the appointments with your son go well.

I hope your son feels better. Enjoy your lovely books. I'm getting ready for bed and curling up with a book until sleep time.

Hi Barb!

I will look over your shop this weekend. Thanks for the info on payment. How exciting to meet another lover of beauty. Do you read French? I am a French teacher and there are many wonderful reads in this great language. Marcel Pagnol is my favorite to date. Have a lovely day, Anita
