If you don't read that...read  this!

Earlier this week, I started a novel by Madeleine L'Engle. I remember liking a Wrinkle In Time, but I coldn't finish The Other Side of the Sun. Instead, I kept putting it down and restlessly looking for something else to immerse myself in. I guess I'm just not one of those readers who wants to read a few pages in the evening to help them drift off to sleep. No, I don't choose my books as an antidote to sleeplessness, and I certainly don't judge anyone who does. Books can be a wonderful elixir for whatever ails you! Like coffee, wine, and chocolate, I'm fussy about the books I ingest. Hopefully, not a snob, just particular about the purpose. 

Browsing my shelf with the idea I might revisit a favourite, I found a couple of recommendations for you:

A Year in the World by Frances Mayes (of Under The Tuscan Sun fame, Mayes is a poet and her writing is lovely), and Dreaming in Hindi by Katherine Russell Rich. 

Sweet dreams and happy armchair travelling!
