I LOVE to read!

Since my childhood I have loved reading. I was always one of those quirky kids with loads of books. Well I guess I still am just older! Haha.

I got a Kindle for my Birthday last year and wasn’t sure I would like reading on a screen and not on paper but honestly, it is AMAZING!

I recently finished reading ‘TheΒ hundred year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared’ by Jonas Jonasson. Yes the name is kind of silly but it was a really good book. It was about the hundred year old Swedish man called Allan, and his interesting life story. It has some very funny sections and links many famous people and events during his lifetime very cleverly. At only 20p it is a bargain! I highly recommend it.

Yesterday I finished the ‘Turtle Boy’ book by Kealan Partick Burke. It only took me 2 nights to read as it is a short novella, plus it kept me gripped the whole way through! It was a free read on Amazon and I really enjoyed it. I won’t spoil the story but seriously, it’s free: download it! I’m thinking of downloading the next in the series.

In other news, my Mollie Makes and Cloth magazines came in the post.

I decided to try Cloth magazine as it looked good and they have a subscription offer of 3 magazines for Β£5 (click here for a link). So after having a quick look through I think it is definitely worth the 3 issues for Β£5 but I don’t think I will keep up my subscription after the offer ends. Here are my favourite projects:

Have you brought or read this magazine before? What did you think?

When Mollies Makes comes through I always get excited and this issue was not a disappointment.

I also subscribed to the Gathered magazine on the iPad for 1 year, always inspiring with lots of fun projects and ideas (link). They definitely make Fridays more fun!

  2. I don’t read that much these days but my last book was
    Bram Stoker’s Dracula, which was incredibly enjoyable,
    I mean I have seen the film many times but reading the
    book was even better I think πŸ™‚

    Have a lovely rest of weekend πŸ™‚

  3. I also never thought that I would have liked reading e-books as much as I feel like now. But when I owned Kindle and read a lot of books on it, I really like using Kindle to explore the world of books. I will check out your mentioned magazine on iPad. Although I’m not good at any DIY project but I’d like to look at them. Thanks πŸ˜‰

  4. Wow I finally found a “well rounded” blog and it even has a book section! Yay!!! I’m def. going to buy the book about the guy who’s 100 years old.. several people reccomended me that one but somehow it ended up on my amazon wishlist and I forgot about it πŸ™‚
