The Open Book

What would every book lovers dream be? To run their own bookshop but currently it’s not something many people would quit their current jobs to take on. How about for a holiday? Would you relocate for two weeks to a small Scottish town called Wigtown to run a book shop? I know that i would if i got the chance.

Enter the Open book

The blog for this wonderful venture shows how many different and vibrant people have taken on the chance to be booksellers for 14 days. Boy do they all seem to enjoy it.

So if this is how you would like to spend your two week holiday head over to the air BnB site and book yourself into two weeks of literary heaven.

I take pictures of clocks all around the world. Time can be tricky when you in a different time zone. Some places are really strict and trains will leave the second they are supposed to but other countries can be a lot more relaxed and leave minutes if not hours later than scheduled.

Postcards from …. Venice

I took a long weekend trip to venice one year and thought I would share my photographs from that trip.  I loved being there it was such an easy place to get around and around every corner was something new to see and explore.

TeaserTuesday-ADailyRhythm3
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
You can either share here in the comments if you don’t have a blog or create a pay and link it back here.

So here is mine:

The sense of awe begins well before the music starts playing. Just entering Verona’s ancient arena takes your breath away.
