Hi!
I am middle-aged psychiatric nurse, married, and two grown-up kids already away from home, a grandmother to a girl born 5/21 ... and I love books!

I love cozy mysteries, travel stories and books about food (especially food-related memoirs and such) and modern writers like Anne Tyler, Paul Auster, Julia Glass etc, but I also love a good classic!
I read both in Finnish and English.

Most of the books in my wishlist are in English, but I would be as happy to get the same book in Finnish :) I update my wishlist very often.

I am trying to declutter my house, so it is pretty hard to think about wishes, but here's some:
* my biggest wish is wishlist-book, and also books about food (especially food-related memoirs and such, not so much cookbooks as such) I read both in Finnish and English.
* CHOCOLATE , especially unusual taste or chocolates with filling (rather than plain) like chocolate with pineapple or Irish cream truffle or Frys Turkish Delight! And I like more milkchocolate than dark, but anything is good!
* I love the combination of sweet and savory, like chocolate covered prezels or something like that.
* I also love to try new food, cookies, drinks, spices etc. I love stuff with wasabi, watermelon or ginger!
* Notebooks, nice good pens and pencils, decorative tapes etc
* woollen or cotton socks, size 40 / 6 uk/8,5 us
* bookplates in English or Finnish
* candles, scented or not, doesn't matter!
* some tiny things for the dollhouse I'm decorating - never had one as a child, so I'm re-living my childhood now :D
* a magazine in English (can be used) about cooking, decorating, generally women/home-kind of themes. Not gossip-, music-,movies- or fashion (they are not my cup of tea).
* Anywhere Travel Guide: 75 Cards for Discovering the Unexpected, Wherever Your Journey Leads (can be used!)
