In The Kingdom Of Mists
2 journalers for this copy...
After coming away (sort of) empty handed (in terms of the NSS Unconvention) after going into 7 charity shop, 2 pubs, 2 little free libraries and 2 cafes I finally found a secondhand bookshop that came up trumps! This is one of 5 books I got today to post to Edinburgh. The list of books they had was a little longer and I chose ones that had connections to things I know: this one with France!

FIVE! Five wish list books, have arrived in a neat wee box! An event above and way beyond any expectations as a participant in the International Un-Con 2021 NSS. (NSS = Not So Secret - book parcel exchange by post.) Huge, HUGE THANKS ETMadrid. Plus, decorated with wonderful prints of ancient to old buildings in Rotherhithe village, an excellent 100% cotton, tea towel and a hot choc in a packet! (Genius move!) Whole box akin to receiving a SURPRISE selection box of Hotel Chocolate Liquor Chocolates = BEAMING GRINS! Sumptuously rich pickings that are going to last a good long while. Grinning from ear to ear in the capital of Tartanland.
Jakeman, Jane – In the Kingdom of Mists (Claude Monet #1) Really looking forward to this, I adore Monet’s Thames, fogs & mists, sequence of paintings, and am keen as mustard to know more about these paintings and the painter. Plus this historic who-dun-it comes with added mystery and suspense = bliss! Come on other readers search for and read her work – Jakeman’s writing is so OUTSTANDING.
COMPLETE LIST OF WISHLIST TITLES FROM BOOKCROSSER ETMadrid;
• In the Kingdom of Mists (Claude Monet #1) – Jakeman, Jane
• Justice Hall (Russell & Holmes 6) – King, Laurie R
• From This Day Forward –L’Engle, Madeleine
• Rubicon – Saylor, Steven
• Water-Blue Eyes (Leo Caldas #1) – Villar, Domingo
GOSH & GASP! My NSS PARCEL did arrive on Saturday! It delighted me by waiting on my doormat to be discovered as I left to buy milk in the evening. Could have been that the postie made too soft a knock I missed when the radio was on loud, or perhaps the postie didn’t knock? Sometimes these sweet young posties don’t imagine my door bell actually works, perhaps as it looks so old? (As well it might of course, as the building is over 100 years old.) To finish, again HUGE THANKS ETMadrid.
