The act of reading ... begins on a flat surface, counter or page, and then gets stirred and chopped and blended until what we make, in the end, is a dish, or story, all our own.
— Adam Gopnik

Anticipation: UK edition

A cousin to this book, and another great team. 
Arriving here in late October, too. 

I remember reading the Cazelet Chronicles when they were
first published in the 1980s and early 1990s. {Have you?}
This new book is the fourth installment, to be
published here in April.

We've talked about this one before, but here's the UK cover.
It won't be published here until June!

Hmmm. I have a nephew who now lives and works in London, and I'm sure he wouldn't mind book shopping for his aunt. On second thought, oh, well.  Patience is a virtue!

I have been meaning to read the Cazalet Chronicles for years... nothing like a good family saga!

I'd love to have a personal book shopper in London :) If he has a spare room, I'd be buying a plane ticket, actually.

I have tried to read the Cazalet Chronicles so many times but just can't get into them. But both of these other books are already on my library hold list!

I'm looking forward to all these as well & have my name down at the library for them. I'm not usually a fan of Austen prequels etc but this has had good reviews & I am a JT fan so I'll give it a go.

A woman at our book club on Saturday mentioned that she'd just read a book by Joanna Trollope, although she couldn't remember the title. She loved it, and apparently (obviously) she's a relative of Anthony Trollope. Both of whom I need to read before the year ends. Or, soon.

Thank you for visiting!
