Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

From my 17 for 2017, the Heap by the Bed. It’s gone down by 12 books so far, so just imagine how big it used to be.

Next weeks’ prompt is Wave!

Happy Snapping!

  1. Great photo, I love your wallpaper too!

  2. Hello Cathy, I followed you home 🙂 I’ve seen you around for some time, we seem to have many blogs in common, and I know you have been visiting me for a while too – for which I thank you. So finally I got around to popping in. Love your book pile – I have a rather hefty one too, it never really goes down as it keeps getting added to. So many books, so little reading time! 😀 Pauline

    • Hello there! Yes I keep seeing people on the same blogs, it makes us a super community which grows and grows. I love this blogging. I am making a big effort not to add to that heap, but my sons read boooks and think I would like them and so it keeps growing. Overall I think the heap has gone down this year!

  3. Very impressive accomplishment!! I don’t think my stack ever goes down because there is always another going on top of it. Someone loaned me a book I just can’t get into. I’m going to ask if they want it back and if not, I may donate it. No time to waste on an awful book.

    • I have taken to avoiding all sources of second hand books. Books for the kindle don’t count, they don’t form heaps.

  4. Love your wall paper! Well one on the reading 🙂

    That is an impressive amount of reading 🙂

  6. And was the lamp on top when the pile was twelve books higher?

  7. Pretty.
    I love the idea of putting your lamp on top of the books…I think I will do the same, more space on the side.

    • Normally there are just the two bottom ones to put the light at the right height for bedtime reading, the others lurk round the corner on the floor!

  8. I’d cheat and read those two thick bottom books first, so I got a BIG sense of accomplishment. 🙂

  9. I think the only one of those books I’ve read in the Follett–I seem to remember loving it!

  10. Just zooming in on your book heap – a very eclectic collection there. I studied the Kate Chopin book for my degree and I think I’ve read Nathaniel’s Nutmeg at some time too. I tend to put my ‘to read’ books (that aren’t on the Kindle) a little way away from my bedside table – otherwise I might feel overwhelmed by the pressure to get on with the next one.
    I love your wallpaper 🙂

    • Glad you like the wallpaper, since I choose it! Thanks. The pile is a bit overwhelming and to be honest I moved the heap from the floor, only the bottom two books are normally on the table, they put the lamp at just the right height. I didn’t want to photo them on the floor cos then I would have had to move all the stuff which is pending! I have gradually acqured all the books over a few years, they all appeal to me! I do have eclectic taste I guess.

  11. I just love this picture. It gives me a sense of your cosy, pretty bedroom, with a Hamma bead heart shaped coaster – was that made for you by one of your grandchildren? Delightful!
    It could be the cover of a book, with something wonderful and significant happening at 2.27 in leafy Pickering. 😉

  12. Great challenge and challenge image Cathy.
