One of my favourite things in life is books. I have always been a mad collector of them and like so many bibliophiles have had libraries in the past numbering 1000s. Now I try to keep the collection under a thousand of my favourites with Enid Blyton probably taking up about 1/3 of my bookshelf space and Agatha Christie, Dr Seuss and Mary Burchell closely behind. I am currently re reading Dora Joan Potter's 'Winterton' series of Australian boarding school stories set in the 40s. Actually, with the exception of Dr Seuss, most of my favourite authors were writing in the 40s or 50s, Neville Shute and John Wyndham and childhood favourites Rumer Godden and Anthony Buckeridge (I still chuckle over the scrapes Jennings finds himself in and always regret that I didn't email and tell Mr Buckeridge how much I loved his books while he was still alive).
Because I am guessing that people are here because they like Enid Blyton or they like dolls houses, I have made a PDF file of one of my mini books to share with you. You will need Adobe reader which is easily googled and free to download .
Edit 16.12.10 Oops - I just printed this up and realised I had saved the faulty file to PDF! It will be replaced after Christmas. and I apologise to anyone who has attempted to make it.
