My day in books - Cornflower strikes again!
I've been meaning to do Cornflower's My Day In Books - fill in the answers with books you've read this year. It's tricky, and I seem to have moved to the coast, but always fun! Do have a go yourself, and check out Karen's original post. (Where I have reviewed the books, they get a link.)
I began the day by A View of the Harbour
before breakfasting on Brighton Rock
and admiring The World I Live In.
On my way to work I saw Art in Nature
and walked by The Sea, The Sea
to avoid The Wrong Place,
but I made sure to stop at The Other Garden.
In the office, my boss said Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,
and sent me to research More Women Than Men.
At lunch with Spinster of this Parish
I noticed Sweet William
in The Corner That Held Them
greatly enjoying Green Thoughts.
Then on the journey home, I contemplated All The Books of My Life
because I have Enthusiasms
and am drawn to The Uncommon Reader*.
Settling down for the evening, Back to Home and Duty,
I studied Elders and Betters
by I. Compton-Burnett
before saying goodnight to One Fine Day.
