Starting at the beginning

Whilst I have been writing blogs for the past few years they have been about children’s books and also about the work that I do with schools.   You can find them at   which is “Margaret’s Reading Shelf” and  which is my site  “Growing the School Library”

This fabulous saying was found on Facebook, so thank you to whoever posted it and to Robin Sharma, whom I assume wrote this saying.

With this site I have decided to broaden my thoughts to include any adult books, both fiction and non-fiction, that I have come across.  However the criteria is much the same – I only write about books that I have liked and I see no reason to be negative about other people’s work.

To start with I am going to highlight a few of the books that are still on my !to be read” list.  given that I spend most of my time reading children’s books it often takes a while to find time for some adult books.  Over the last few years it tends to be the non-fiction that gets looked at; this can be anything from Egyptology and General History to Crafts and Cookery.

I know that there are some amazing blogs out there, so I can only do my best to be as honest as I can be and to write what i am interested in.  I hope you enjoy.
