On my bedside table

I love books. I am a total library geek.
Whenever we move somewhere new the first thing I do is get a library card.

I've spotted a few blog posts around the internet where people share what they are reading/ library books and I thought this year I'd like to join in.

I'll share the books I borrowed and talk a little about a couple of them.

My recent trip to the library was quite a good one. I went to a different library and was excited with the books I found.

For Christmas I received Bellagrande by Paullina Simons. I have hunted everywhere for Children of Liberty (the prequel) and was so pleased to find it at the library - free to borrow!

And we love Jamie Oliver in this house. This book is FAB!! today I made one of the 'jar dressings' for my salad. So easy! I plan to make more from this and maybe even buy a copy.

What books are on your bedside table??? What library books are you reading?

I'm loving all this blogging you're doing Leonie! I haven't been to the library for the longest time. Must remedy that I think!

OOh, I'm spotting a few there I'd like to read too. Am always looking for suggestions and recommendations for good reads for my Book Club so I shall follow with interest.
Btw - had lunch at Jamie's Italian in Birmingham today, I agree.. his recipes are all yum!

Next to my bed - 3x John Green (Will Grayson/ Paper Towns/ An Abundanceof Katherines), John Boyne's Stay where you are and then leave; Tim Winton's Eyrie; Khalid Hosseini's And the mountains echoed ; Christos Tsiolkas' Barracuda; Sharon Creech's The Great Unexpected and Elananor Catton's The Luminaries !!!! All unread, all bought or gifts... They sit there while I read NZ land war books for summer university paper!
A terrible library user, but only because I am a librarian and never ever take things back on time and rack up fines!!!!!! Buy thousands of dollars of books a year for school (last year around $10,000 so am basically always buying books....) and quite a few for home.
Libraries and librarians are obviously great though!

I love reading and books too - the library is always the first thing I join when I have moved also. Can't wait to see what else you read this year.
