thoughts on a Saturday night

This is just a random post, no book review tonight, to tired to think to much tonight but not quite ready to go to bed.

I have been doing a lot of art journaling lately, pretty much its a daily thing and has become a bit of an obsession. There is a lot of mix media art involved and when it comes to mixed media nothing is safe from becoming part of my projects, well at least that what I thought until earlier this week. I decided I need some old book pages on a page I was working on and since I have a book case (and several boxes) of old books that get neglected since I use a kindle now so I pulled out on that is pretty tatty, well loved I call it and I flicked through and thought I could use a few of the lose pages but I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t pull apart the book.

It suddenly dawned on me that I loved that book and if I pulled it apart it would be like ripping up an old friend. The book was written by the late great David Eddings, Book 5 of the Belgariad series which was one of my very favorite series for a long long time. To me there are three great fantasy writers

  1. Raymond E Feist
  2. David Eddings
  3. Anne McCaffrey

you may argue with that and that’s fine, share your favorites with me, theses three have been in my list of favorite authors of all time forever and some of the few writers who I have read everything they have written and loved it all. I still have so many of their books that I can’t bear to part with, though I did hand on my love of books to my middle child and he did steal a few of Feist’s Magician series when he went away to university, the wee thief lol. Actually I didn’t mind at all, its so good to see the next generation develop a love for reading, so few of them have that passion and they don’t know what they are missing. btw my son is 25 and I know some of my followers are in the age group and I say to you…share your love of books, encourage your friends to read, let them escape into the worlds you love.

And now I am burbling so it must be time for bed, but first I need to get the paint off my fingers and put this book back where it belongs, even if I never read it again, its not going anywhere.

Have a fab weekend everyone. Happy reading.
