I agree! This year has flown, and I've still much to do. I've not read Shantaram, will have to check it out. Have a lovely week! :)

Agnes- go to this link :http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0429087/
did u know a movie was in the works??

I have a pile almost that tall as well. My wife and I are in a competition to see who will finish the books we got for Christmas! LOL Mine is about 200 pages more than hers so I have a feeling she will win. What is Shantaram about?

Those books look interesting. I have yet to make rounds to my favorite book store.

It seems I never have time to sit down and just read. What I've started doing is checking out books on tape and listening to them when I drive to and from work or go on errands. You'd be surprised how fast I'm able to "read" a book.

@Chrissy: Who should play Karla?

I see one book I have read in your stack. I love to read but am inclined to read more history and non-fiction than anything else. And, sometimes a great magazine. I just went to my lung doctor and while there read a magazine (1/2 inch thick) called "Real Simple" and loved it – when I got home I found it on line and have since subscribed. Be careful and don't check the last box as it will make your subscription continuing and I don't like that. So I had to call and tell them to uncheck it. Anyway, Agnes, I know this is one magazine you would like. It fits you and your life style. Gosh I was impressed with the photography as well as the ads. So many original things to see, gobs of recipes and wow-factor clothes.

I do like the processing you did on your photo with the alarm clock – do you still use it? And then I really liked your two photos of yourself but fell for the one of you smiling with the big wide belt. What a nice picture that one is.

I will check out "Shantaram". I'm currently reading "The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo". I hope it gets better because at this point all it does is put me to sleep at night.

I always have a huge pile of books to read! It's good to see that I'm not the only one with a loooong reading list.

Such beauty
in your words
and your photo's.

Have a lovely day x

I've never even heard of Shantaram - that's how behind I am on reading. To Kill a Mockingbird - one of my all time favorites, though.

Such powerful things books are, especially when coupled with time. Have a great day Agnes.

I love those photos of you, you are so gorgeous!!! I've been meaning to read Shantaram since my trip to India. A million people have told me to read it.

I've read quite a few books this summer - mostly poetry and some Greek literature I hadn't read for a long time. Have a great week ahead.

I go through phases of not wanting to read too. They upset me, those phases, because I am an avid reader but sometimes it seems as if all my energy is dissipated and I can't enjoy my book. Have a great week. So nice to se you're posting regularly again.

sunday,monday,september or november you are cute as always

I agree with you. There are so many books to read. I am going to read Shantaram soon too. And, you are looking great!

Oh you always look so GORGEOUS!! That waist coat is so special, look at you, flawless. Love Posie

Lovely photos of a lovely person! Ah yes I have passed from a book-reading phase month before last (that would be July) to a non-reading month (that would be August) I wonder if September will hasten in a book reading phase for me again? I do hope so!

I loved Shantaram. And the other wonderful books you have there will be just as good when you're ready to jump in again :)

Oh crap, the clock has almost hit midnight and you haven't read those books yet!

Shantaram is a masterpiece but there are still so many I think. Would love to exchange ideas! I read "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" by Jonathan Safran Foer a while ago and it is a very special, well written book...also "The Time Traveller's Wife"...but it might be too heartbraking for you...*hugs*

I have a beautiful recommendation however; a book by a Swedish author called Linda Olsson (http://www.lindaolsson.net/) that lives in New Zealand and writes both in English and Swedish. Her book "Let me sing you gentle songs" is one of my all time favourites. It's soothing, sad and hopeful at the same time.

All the best to you!

What a sweet little nightstand you have. A stack of books nearby always feels comforting to me.


Dropped by yesterday, you weren't in. :) Joined your beautiful site, loving everything about your blog, especially photos, and wishing you all the best!


..Good looking about Fashion above...

Good to know you read. I wish I can read too because the moment I read books I sleep.

u seem to read a lot.i haven't finished the one book i took long before.. it got to be more than interesting to urge me to read without keeping it down ;)

Lovely to have you back Agnes, hope all is going well for you. I read Leonard Cohen's Beautiful Losers in my bed-sit back in the early 1970s. His words made me fall deeper in love with him.

I'm also an addict when it comes to collecting books:) I love reading and writing essays.
