My starter post for this week....TTT and TT


My last week has again been a little too hectic, and I have many half-finished posts that I will get to shortly and post them as well..
I just realized I had not posted since last Tuesday - so here is a start on this week's Tuesday posts on Monday itself...
For Top Ten Tuesdays, the theme is Top ten books when I need something light/comfort reading
  1. Historical romances –The Bridgertons and The Cynsters
  2. Short stories by Saki, O’ Henry, and Oscar Wilde
  3. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
  4. Anything by Shel Silverstein
  5. Anything by Roald Dahl
  6. Anything by Dr.Seuss
  7. Comics – Sunday comics in the papers, Tintin, Archie, and of course Calvin and Hobbes
  8. Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie
  9. Zeb and the Great Ruckus by Josh Donellan
  10. A dose of non-fiction in books like : Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation by Lynne Truss
From 'The Thank You Stone' by Kathryn Hegeman - a wonderful book for children with a wonderful message:
'Simon says, "Thank you for the tea, Mrs.Perkins." Again, he almost smiles as he rises to leave.'

  1. I like the Dr. Seuss books too! In fact, when I see them on display at the grocery store I will read them while waiting for my husband to get through the checkout! Hope Mrs. Perkins can get him to smile. Perhaps she should read him a Dr. Seuss book!
