On My Mind...

Joining in with Rhonda today for an On My Mind Post.

Today we both had the day off, so that is on my mind. We went to lunch at this amazing Mexican restaurant downtown and then took a stroll and browsed through my favourite used book store. I bought three books, but one is for my new course that starts on Monday. The other two were for pure pleasure. If there is one thing I love to buy, it's books. I try not to buy too many per year, but that never quite works out. Plus who can turn down a five dollar book that has as much charm as this one?

In my all time favourite novel, The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, there are several classic novels mentioned, a lot of them obscure and unheard of. Today, I stumbled upon one of those. The Woman in White. I am so excited to start this one! Here are my other finds:

What a wonderful way to spend our day off together! 



  1. We share your illness - LOVE of books. I'm so glad you found such treasures and had a lovely day together.

  2. I have a love of books also, and getting quite a collection of really old reading books. I just love the smell and I like to let my imagination go wild and think about who may have owned these treasures before me. Happy reading.

  3. Now that's a perfect day! I share the same illness as you and Becky and Golden Lilly. Fun isn't it? :)

  4. Hope you have a great weekend reading.

  5. Ah, my fellow reading addicts it is so nice to know I am not alone! Thanks for all of the support :)
