Welcome! I’m back! I haven’t updated this feature for a week or so as nothing has happened!

What I am currently reading:

One Hundred Years of Solitude” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (It’s not very exciting so far)

Harry Potter und der Stein der Weisen” by JK Rowling – the German language version of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” (I know the story really well but reading it in German is more challenging, especially when it’s twice the size!)

Bookish blast from the past:

My Dad was sorting through some of his books the other day and, among all the architecture and cookery books, he found this book which I was given by my German exchanged partner when I was at secondary school! I had totally forgotten about it and it’s been hiding with my parents’ books all this time! It’s basically a book about the town of Krefeld in Germany where my exchange partner lived and flicking through it brought back memories of the week I spent there as a teenager!

Other bookish things:

1) I’m watching the Harry Potter films, and I’ve finally got around to watching the rest of “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”!

2) I went into Waterstones bookshop yesterday but didn’t buy any books – I don’t think I was in the mood for books! I did however have a good nosy around the stationary section and came across a tiny little journal called “One Word Day” which has pages with a space to a write one word to describe each day!

I didn’t buy it, but it inspired me to create a new blogging challenge based on this idea and which I will be commencing on Tuesday 1st September!
