I have to echo Raven's words, I can't believe that I've missed this cool thread up until this exact minute!

At the moment I am reading the cookbook, simply entitled "Fish" by Sophie Grigson.


(Best of luck to you Bucky!)

While I was shopping for my grandchildren, I bought the complete set of "The Chronicles of Narnia". I will pass them on to one of them after I've read the set. I have only taken out the first book, but plan to read them all when reading time isn't so scarce. I don't remember reading them when I grew up.

I have been forever looking for an Italian version of ANY James Herriot book and finally found it some days ago. JUST ONE COPY of "Cat Stories". (it is really unbelievable, as famous and loved he is almost everywhere in the world, he seems to be utterly unknown in Italy!!) Since I could get only one copy, I have to make this a gift for one of our dearest friends, a cat lover, who would surely cherish this book. Now I am trying to read as much as possible of it ever so carefully not to make any dog ears or drop some stains from my tea or munchies(I was always curious how it would be translated, also it is a great learning tool to read something that I know by heart in Italian), before it has to be gift wrapped later today!!

That is very beautiful Licia, what a truly thoughtful gift, I'm sure your dear friend will be touched through and through by your wonderful present
