What book were you determined to read this year and you still didn’t pick up? Is it at least on your bookshelf or e-reader?
Well...my son lovingly bought me a book in June of this year when we was in Scotland because he knows I love learning about life as kitchen maids and butlers in British/Scottish households.When I was there later that year, we visited this awesome house in Edinburgh that showed the housekitchen and the bells his Lordship and Lady used to summon the maids to their chambers or whatever room they were in.
I haven't had time to read it, but it is right there front and center on my bookshelf.
I will HAVE to read it this year. "It isn't even long, Mom, you can do it, right?" :)
"I will make my best effort, Mark, since I have tried to cut down on accepting review requests for the new year."
And the book is...BELOW STAIRS by Margaret Powell:
