I hope everyone has had a wonderful festive season. I have been a very spoilt girl and the recipient of a number of lovely presents:

* First and Second Chalet School Books for Girls
* Norman Davies' Europe at War
* Leonard Mosley's On Borrowed Time: How World War II Began
* Ulf Schmidt's Justice at Nuremberg: Leo Alexander and the Nazi Doctors' Trial
* Mark Connelly's We Can Take It!: Britain and the Memory of the Second World War
* Isobel St. Vincent's Three in the Fourth*
* Ethel M. Dell's Tetherstones*
* Ethel Talbot's The Girls of the Rookery School
* the complete Time Life series on The Third Reich (18 volumes)
* 'Allo 'Allo Series 6 on DVD
* Jane Eyre on DVD (the new mini-series)
* two Malaysian scarves

So I am a supremely spoilt person indeed and will have no time to do anything but read for weeks to come!
Mood:: 'thankful' thankful

If anyone on my friends list is in Berlin, could they please let me know? I really want a book from one of the exhibitions, but I'm not sure I can order it direct from them. Thanks a million!

As revenge against the not-working CBB, I splashed out today on a first edition copy of Theodora. No dw, but it does have the frontispiece, so that is very shiny! Yay! I am slowly but surely clawing my way towards a full hardback set!!!

1. grab the nearest book.

2. open the book to page 123.

3. find the fifth sentence.

4. post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.

5. don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! just pick up whatever is closest.


His intentional roughness roused Jo to self-control, and she sat up rather indignantly. ‘Don’t be so brutal, Jack. I’m all right.’
‘Then see you keep all right,’ he told her severely. ‘We’ve enough on our hands without you being stupid.’

Far too easy, this one...
