A Lovely Stack of Reading

Is there anything more pleasurable than a stack of books waiting to be read? For years one of my biggest fears was running out of books. The stack would get low and panic would set in. Now, I could happily re-read most of the books on the shelves and find them new again. And, thank goodness, I have friends who read, not sure if they ever sleep, but they sure do read and are especially good about lending. So the coffee table is piled high and I am starting with the Rose Tremain, one of my favourite writers. If you haven't read Music and Silence, do;  it's a gem. With the show opening tonight all my major commitments are done for the moment so I intend to spend next week reading and cleaning up the studio and gardens. Maybe, even the house.
My lovely stack of books


  1. Enjoy your well deserved week! Thanks for the recommendations.

  2. Joan Mitchell, Lee Krasner and Hans Hofman...I am summer reading envious!

  3. Thanks Leslie, I hear the hammock calling.....

    Thanks Blue Sky, it's going to be a lovely feast. I have heard such great things about the Joan Mitchell and Lee Krasner books; biggest decision will be, which first.

  4. Lady Painter is on my list to get, and now I have added Lee Krasner. You can never have too many books!

  5. Matt, I think you will enjoy Lee Krasner, historically this book is fascinating.


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
