reading matters...

 my studio time is limited presently
but fortunately my reading time hasn't been affected by 'stuff'

My local independent book store loves me
and they know I just can't go past a delicious book...

my stack of recent purchases threatens to sink a small boat
(or creek grrrrl?)
 but please excuse the amazon link -
its here just to show you more of the book - I don't buy stuff from the big A...

my indie bookstore even stocks my two new fav magazines

'New Philosopher'
(yumbo scrumbo for the brain cells)

new book/mag on the block


(dippy name if you ask me - but there's not an airbrushed bikini-clad celebrity in sight -
& no adverts for plastic surgeons or stilettos either so I forgive them the name...)  

but there are the odd few things
that even the best little bookstore in the universe can't (easily) get for me

ie - these little lust-worthy blurb books
I've been hankering for....

(oooooo myyyyy)

I even threw caution (and paper) to the wind
and downloaded my first ever electronic book...

 .. and lo it was very good!

(insert smiley face here)

as lovely and amazing as all my books are

my favourite 'book' of the past few weeks was a little one that arrived in the post...

 its cheered me up and made me sigh

its message of peace

delivered in every pen/brushstroke
