season of sentiment



When it rains i revisit old books.

Some weekends when it’s stormy and afternoon is turning to evening, I lie on the futon and read all all my favourites.

Mandrake. Bahadur. Alexander Frater’s Chasing the monsoon. The Mahabharat. Bill Bryson’s Notes from a small country. Patricia Highsmith’s Ripley Series. Biggles. Pearls before Swine. Philip Roth’s Goodbye Columbus. And of course liberal doses of Feluda.

Everyone has comfort food. I have comfort books.

Oh I know just what you mean..but a bag of chips while I'm reading doesn't hurt (at least immediately!). Is that your room - lovely!

Ok, I feel a lot better about my book-buying. I read a lot too, and I have an assortment of books, probably not alot, but certainly lots more than average.
Loving your bookshelf though. You should seek out 'Living with book' by Alan Power(s?), it's full of photos of other people's lovely bookshelves and libraries. An interesting buy. :)

Whoa! Is that your bookshelf?
Mine is still a dream.

Books and rain do make a great combo. Add some coffee, maybe a smoke too :)
