"Book'em Danno . . . "

Greetings and salutations,

Let me tell you about one of my morning rituals. On my way into the office, I stop at the Starbucks on Brannon. Get my 'grande drip in a vente cup' and 'oatmeal with everything.' (sidebar. medium coffee in the larger cup means I have room for cream an sugar without having to pour coffee out. It works for me.) So with my coffee in hand, I head to the office. As I start heading up the stairs - my eyes are sharply focused in the floor just outside my office door. Is there a box waiting for me? Something from Amazon? Maybe?

Here's a quick look at some favourites that I'm expecting :

Joe Nye

Firstly, I love Joe Nye's work. And I can't wait to see his new book.
Even the cover is delightful. Yay.

Dominique Browning

And speaking of excited . . . I have a feeling I might need to read this in one sitting. If you haven't have a chance to read the excerpt from the New York Times, have a look here.

This one is kinda obvious.
I actually have an advance copy . . . but, I'm buying a few extra
copies so that I can give them as gifts.

Thomas O'Brien

What else do you need to say.

Hutton Wilkinson

I went to reference this after my tour of Dawnridge last week - and have NO idea where my copy has vanished to. There's a new one on the way.

Caroline Clifton-Mogg

So beautiful. Great photography.
And a million ideas for entertaining.

Happy reading,



It is kind of cool to see that somebody else like the same kind of books I do :)

A great selection of books. I will have to see if any of these are available at a nearby Barnes & Noble. Have a great Easter weekend Scot.

What did we do before Amazon? Chills go up my spine when I stop to think the $$$ I've spent over the years there. But, I have lots of bookcases that just keep getting fuller & me happier & happier & happier. And, I can't wait for your interview on SRT. So fun.

I've been a bad blog friend these last couple of weeks. Too busy with work. I'll be better this week though.

Happy Easter!

Great choices! Don't you love that feeling of excitement when you crack the spine of a beautiful book for the first time. (If you could smell, I'd add 'and the smell of the paper...')

Happy Easter friend! Have a great weekend!

The books? Absolute musts! Your style? Absolutely delicious! I am in Heaven reading from one post to another...why did it take me so long to find you? Okay, so I AM slow and quite befussled but I DID finally see the error of my ways and hop on board! I LOVE it here.
Have a sweet week...off to read more.
