Drowning in a sea of books:

Lately I've accumulated a startling amount of new books in a short space of time. Some were prizes, some were purchased with a book voucher (also a prize), and others were purchased for school (I'm sure you can tell which ones). I feel book-wealthy at the moment; it's luxurious! The only problem is working out which to read next. I'm great at starting too many books and then not knowing which ones to finish.

Laura Elizabeth -- thanks for the birthday love! The idea of many small parties is fun because it's really just an excuse to catch up with people, and you don't have to stand up in front of a big crowd and cut a cake or make a speech :D.

Carla -- yay!!! Let's all vote YES to public holidays on birthdays!

Katie -- ah, yay! I was a little concerned there were altogether too many pictures, so I'm glad you enjoyed them.

Lauren -- yum. Let's make banoffee pie soon. I wish you could have been here, too, but I'm glad we had a pre-birthday party :D.

Rebecca Simon -- spreading the fun over several days is so much cooler :D.

SandieT -- thank you for the kind unbirthday wishes :D. I love that Robert Frost quote; thank you for sharing!

Caitlin -- I always vote for spreading the fun over a few days :). Love back!

Un -- I, too, am a big fan of the handwriting. So far I can't bring myself to clean off the blackboard and write something new. Love you! x

Ruth -- well I'll simply(this) have to mention you in every post then, right? ;) Next time we'll make the boys take pictures of us.


  1. What a lovely way to drown :) Also, random trivia fact of the day which I'm sure you will already know: White of "The Elements of Style" is EB White who wrote "Charlotte's Web". There you go. Which is like my least favourite book of all time because in the end there are a MILLION spiders!!!!!!!!

  2. Re: Laura Elizabeth's comment... only recently connected the White from Elements of Style with EB of Charlotte's Web fame! Doh!

    But speaking of EB I came across this picture of him writing in a seaside cabin the other day: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_TQZnC6i25Hs/SdK13luAekI/AAAAAAAAA7M/nDNPj_tl_X8/s1600-h/ebWhite-1.jpg and it made me think of you, Danielle.

    I hope you like The Help! I loved it and I'm mad that the movie isn't out here yet.

  3. I loved Eats, shoots and leaves! It was great.
    Observing your tiny ocean of books has led me to change my mind: may I borrow The Help, afterall?

  4. Oh my gollyness!! Wooppeee!! I bet you are so so so excited! I LOVE the look of the panda book. And 'The Elements of Style' = wonder.
