Today I read...

"It was a wedding invitation that changed everything for Floriana...

If she hadn't been so distracted at the thought of having to witness the one true love of her life get married, she would have seen the car coming.

If she'd seen the car coming, there would have been no need for elderly spinster Esme Silcox and local property developer Adam Strong to rush to her aid.

And if Floriana hadn't met Adam and Esme she would never have had the courage to agree to attend Seb's wedding in beautiful Lake Como.

For Esme, Lake Como awakens memories of when she stayed at the lake as a nineteen-year-old girl and fell in love for the first time. So often she's wondered what happened to the man who stole her heart all those years ago, a man who changed the course of her life.

Now it's time for both Esme and Floriana to face the past - and the future - on the shores of this most romantic and enchanting of lakes".(less)

I couldn't resist the lure of a blog post about books! I had a nasty flu bug all of last week and didn't manage to do much apart from wake up , eat an evening meal and drop back to sleep again! I think I've only ever had flu once before- and wouldn't mind if it never visisted again. I went to see my niece in Miss Saigon and it was the first time I'd been out of the house for a week and my aunt made me feel tons better by telling me I looked very poorly!!!!!

Anyway- my favourite pastime is and always has been reading.

Today's book is by one of my favourite authors and it jumped onto my kindle late last week. I am 11% through it- one of the things I miss most about 'real' books is actual page numbers. I know it's possible to get them on some kindles- but mine shows the percentage read.

I was a very reluctant convert to kindle- but wouldn't be without it now. I had a complete disaster about a month ago where someone must have trodden on my old kindle and it didn't like it much. I was in a mad panic- until I forced myself to admit that they were just books. I have managed to get the vast majority of books that I had on it before. Some collections are lost- but I can read quite happily for a few years even if I don't buy anymore.

I am trying so hard to keep up to date with my photography challenges- but missed the last 2 weeks of this one and the Daily Snappers. I am listing them to try and catch up at some stage!


  1. I knew you would love this weeks prompt Kim.. will come back and have a read later K x

  2. I haven't tried this author. The book looks interesting.

  3. I have read a few of her books , but not this one

  4. I enjoy reading too especially once I converted to a kindle, it too took me a while and sometimes like this week I revert back to a 'real' book but cannot change the font so have to keep my glasses on :(

  5. Congratulations for this post! That is your favorite topic - books! Amazing!
    I appreciate your efforts and desire for this challenge - everything is O.K.
    Get well soon, dear Kim!

  6. Glad to hear you are feeling better. :)

  7. another book to put on my list :) pleased you are feeling better.

  8. A new book for me as well. How come that books tend to jump freely onto my kindle as well? Some time ago I was against ereaders but now I am addicted.
