All things bookish!

It’s been a difficult week – my father’s been in hospital – but I do have one review for you today.  The School at the Chalet is a girls’ boarding school story written between the wars and the first of a series I constantly return to.  I’ve decided to keep this copy of the book for my Permanent Collection as seem to buy a copy every two or three years!

We’re expecting my father to go back into hospital – possibly next week – for a heart bypass.  I’m not sure if this will mean that I read lots as a distraction or little because I’ll be too busy.  I’m currently reading a review copy of When Life is Hard by James MacDonald so at least I’ve got something very apt to be going on with!  Next up is a NetGalley copy of Plastic by Susan Freinkel.

It’s nearly Lent – I think it starts on Wednesday, 9th March – so I’m thinking about the books I’ll use for that.  I’m very taken with the idea of only reading Christian books (fiction or non) for the season and, of course, I’ll be sorting out a Lenten devotional to work through.  I failed miserably with this last year but am resolved to do better this time around.

    I’ll be keeping your dad in my prayers. ((hugs))
