Thanks everyone! You've really encouraged me, and showed me the right thing to do when in the midst of readers' block. First of all, I'm ignoring all the books I should be reading (sorry people who've sent books for review, they will be read, but this is a medical emergency) and... out comes the Provincial Lady. I wanted to turn to this a few days ago, but thought I couldn't sidetrack myself from the review books - and then realised how silly it was that reading had become a chore. So, a couple of days are going to be taken out, and EM Delafield is coming with me.
I wrote about this collection of four books quite a while ago, and it is still a worthy contender for my favourite book. Funny on every page, warm, witty, touching and a book into which I can really sink my toes (as opposed to my teeth). Like a long bath, and Step One on defeating The Block.
Bear with me...
And, by the by, yesterday's inspiring post was no.300!
