Nephew Brent showed a new list of books of interest on his blog and that started me off on a list that is completely different than what I was going to do today...
It is the first day of spring so I will do more than make yet another list but first things first, right?
I had a massive list at my bedside table listed on the right of the post but it got right out of hand so I am starting over again.
Two books are at my bedside right now, well, one is actually at my desk because it requires sitting up to read but:
Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother by William Shawcross has excellent detail and is a long-time subject of interest. Please ignore the silly "look inside" I could not get rid of:
Revelation of Jesus Christ by Ranko Stefanovic is the desk book because there are notes to write in my Bible, etc. etc.:
Another book close by that will go with me to Paris because of its size and portability, is Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire by Amanda Foreman. Some years ago now I read this book but it is one I want another go at. We recently watched the movie, "The Duchess", which made me want to read it again:
Another book I have on order, recomended by my sister, was the newest bio on Bonhoeffer:
And at the same time I ordered that I ordered a few more children's books that I got started on at the gift shop of the govenor's mansion in Sacramento, CA. The illustrations are fabulous and even though they are old-time stories they are old-time treasures:
So there is a brief list of my books of interest at the moment; some for fun, some for learning, some for inspiration.
There has been a change of plans for the day. I started out thinking I was going to be fertilizing and pruning and weeding but here I am on the ferry headed into town to buy my first Apple computer. Now, will it be an ipad or a MacAir? That is the question.
Tell me, what are your plans for this first day of spring?
