I love the library, and think it really is a national treasure; British libraries are probably second to none. I use a variety of local ones, plus the mobile library which stops in the village once a fortnight. a good aspect of the service is that the books etc you have on loan can be returned to any library in the County, so you can fit it in with where you're going. Now I'm going to Wimborne on a Friday morning, I'm using that one. It's lovely to have a new-to-you library to browse through - I can always find something!
I read very little fiction; I like travel books, knitting, quilting, local history, practical books, gardening, philosophy, spiritual,recipe books, environmental issues, politics, Scottish interest books, poetry......
The pile above was won from the mobile library yesterday. Here's what I got, to give a flavour of the type of books I like:
New Europe - Michael Palin
Lost Land, Forgotten Stories, a woman's journey to the heart of Labrador - Alexandra Pratt
Fishing in Utopia, Sweden and the future that disappeared - Andrew Brown
Illustr. step by step book of quilting - Stanley and Watson
gordon Ramsay's Secrets
Terrine - Stephane Reynaud
How to feed your friends with Relish - Joanna Weinberg
Pupcakes - Stephanie Mehann
Looking forward to getting stuck into that lot! :)
