About…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

..me and the things I love..and general randomness 

Reading, of course 😉 and audiobooks. Books have been a constant throughout my life and I love sharing those I’ve enjoyed with others.

I’ve been writing reviews and blogging about those books I’ve enjoyed for a few years now and still find it very satisfying and pleasurable. Apart from anything else, it’s a good way for me to keep track of the books I read and listen to and if it’s helpful and/or enjoyable for others so much the better.

All reviews on the blog are just my personal opinions and thoughts on books I’ve read/listened to, they’re not meant to be professional critiques. I hope you enjoy reading them nevertheless.

I’m also enjoying photography and take my camera wherever I go. My photos are under copyright as my own, any others are taken from resources on the internet.

Music, theatre and walks by the sea. I used to live in the south-west of the UK where there are lots of lovely beaches, now relocated to the North Wales coast, so still enjoying being by the sea….

And maybe the odd glass of wine 🙂

Favourite Quotes:

There comes a time when you have to choose between turning the page and closing the book ~ Josh Jameson

You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as though you’ve lost a friend ~ Paul Sweeney

No matter how grouchy you’re feeling,
You’ll find the smile more or less healing.
It grows in a wreath
All around the front teeth—
Thus preserving the face from congealing.
~ Anthony Euwer

  7. A pleasure to meet you Cathy. We share a passion for books. I grew up across the street from a library and so I developed a life long love affair with books at an early age. I still spend quite a bit of time at the library, which fortunately is within walking distance. Thanks for visiting and following my blog!

  10. Love the name of your blog. It is actually my ‘working title’ of a book I’m working on…
    A dear friend once told me what he noticed immediately upon entering a home for the first time, was the book shelves. I knew it was a friendship that would last a lifetime!

  11. I am a blogging friend of author Marcia Meara’s. Rosie said I could reblog/press some of her posts on my blog, Always Write, http://www.marshajustwrites.com. I have been looking for a way to increase the traffic for book reviewers including myself because I noticed that under normal conditions, book reviews do not draw a lot of traffic.
    Bam Then I discovered all of you. I’m so impressed with what you are doing as a team. Very cool. I have chosen to reblog your post, Manipulated Lives. It will have links to your blog as well as Rosie’s and I took the liberty to copy and paste part of your About page at the bottom of the post with another link back to your blog. I then will push it out on social media. If you agree to that, it will come out on Dec. 29th. Wth that longish introduction, I wish you a Merry Christmas, and I hope to hear from you soon. 🙂
