Read Your Own Books

As the year starts to turn the corner on the last season, I'm well aware that I've still got a couple dozen books to finish for the Read Your Own Books Challenge. Thought I'd include a few of my coffee table books in the mix.

Let's see...there's a gorgeous art book by Trisha Romance, a book about Sir Winston Churchill's life as a painter written by his daughter Mary Soames, the English Country Style decorating book by Mary Gilliant, a book of photography with the Hubbles Space Telescope, (snuck that one from Rick's side of the bed), Mary Englebreit's Outdoor Companion, an artsy book about Kitchens, and the sweet Asleep in the Sun book of photos of kitties sleeping in cozy spots in Greece.

If I keep adding to the reading pile that's towering on my side of the bed, soon I'll have to crawl in from the other side. But what pleasure there is to snuggle in with a good book, a warm kitty on my lap, and one dear snoozing hubby on a chilly autumn evening.

Happy Reading!


  1. I love to read, and have read some of the ones on your pile.

    Hope you have a great time at the conference.

  2. I have not been faithful to my planned reading list this year either. That is definitely due to my new blogging skills. I just love to try to work out things and find all the cute little things to ad. I am reading Blogging For Bliss.Enjoy the conference.

  3. I'm still reading new books but have several old ones that could be reread. Enjoy your conference.

  4. Your pile of books looks very tempting - especially the one by/about Trisha Romance. I do love her paintings.

    Enjoy your conference!


  5. Boy does that sound familiar, though where I come from (Arizona at present), the chilly part of the equation is missing.

    The only thing missing is a bag of red licorice.


  6. Love that graphic and have used it before. Are you aware that you can erase the from your html, to make for a better look. They even allow downloads if you would rather do that...and they don't say so I reckon it's alright to erase that part...if not, I've never heard contrary.
    A lot of my graphics come from there and Penniwigs'll find her in my side bar.

    Have a nice day!☼

  7. Brenda, I love the glitter graphic! Very cute! I love to read! I always have a mountain or two of books to read. Have a great time at the conference!

  8. Rondell got a competition going on right now so get on over to her blog at

  9. You will find time to get those done I'm sure...hope the snow backs off!!

  10. Enjoy the conference and come back and share what you learned.
