I need an intervention. I cannot leave a bookstore empty-handed. My “to read” stack is taller than I am. Have been approached many times by well-meaning employees asking me if I would like to Kindle or Nook. My answer is always the same. No. I like the whole gig of reading, turning the page, holding something tangible – and heavier than a tablet – in my hand. Could hide my bad habit if I did have a Kindle, but I like books in their purest form. Still, enough is enough. Wonder if there is a 12-step program for people like me? If there is, I’m glad I’m not in it yet because the book I am LOVING at this very minute is:
If you read White Mischief, loved the rather tangled social intrigue in “Out of Africa”, or just like riveting, true stories of Edwardian London/Kenya in the 1920’s and 30’s, then you will adore The Bolter, The Story of Idina Sackville written by her great-granddaughter, Frances Osborne.
Which reminds me, I’ve got a lot of reading to do.
