Mailbox Monday hosted for November by Bermudaonion.
Only one book came to my house this week given by a friend - this Daphne du Maurier is unknown to me so I was delighted to receive this.
The next meme for Monday is It'sMonday! What Are You Reading hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
I have several reads going on at once. An Elizabeth George totally different from the rambling English countryside or a bleak moor setting but an urban sprawl complete with squats, squalor and all and the Julian Rathbone from last week which is slow reading but which I am hopeful of finishng one of these days.
Going back to my children's Christmas shopping, today was another marathon - six of them wanted dolls, three wanted doctor sets, one wanted a bead jewellery set and three wanted specifically Winnie the Pooh teddy bears. Got it all except the latter. Now have to look for them plus thirteen of them still have no special dresses for Christmas. Somehow I couldn't find clothes for the 12 to 14 year olds.
