I bought this on my Kindle a year or so again, when I was on a real happiness kick. I just picked my Kindle up again recently (after months of neglect!) and have started reading this.

Do you have a Kindle? Do you find yourself alternating between hard copies and eBooks? I find it hard to do both, sometimes.

Mel gave me this book to read almost a year ago. I finally read it the other day and stayed up until 4am to finish it. I really couldn’t put it down!

Currently reading The General in his Labyrinth. I still have about 50 pages of the Potter biography, but I started this on the plane the other day.

"She had a quiet acceptance that things will quite often go wrong, yet she had remarkable patience and optimism. Loving the natural world as she did, Beatrix had long ago accepted that nature was wild, cruel and endlessly beautiful."
