There are three things I simply "inhale" - tea, jam (always homemade) and books of course! I remember reading Hugo's Les Miserables during my student days (well - nights, rather!) and cycling to uni after a night's reading. I still treasure the beautifully illustrated copy of Anne of Green Gables my American friend's mum bought me at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York when I was 19. And yes,  I love quoting Anne ;-) Just the one then -

"Isn't it wonderful when your imaginations come true?"

 I always have my well-thumbed copy of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice near me, if I happen to have nothing else to read, a couple of pages of this wonderful book will set me up forever  - I'm sorry,  I'm rambling. I could go on and on. I'm glad to even share my birthday with Jane Austen. I love books that take me away from the here and now - doesn't necessarily have to be Narnia. But I do love these, too ♡
