  1. Hi Alison,I too love reading more than anything. And right now my favourite author is …………..you! :-). I am having loads of fun reading all your stuff here. I am working my way through your author archives. Stayed awake til the wee hours this morning reading from page 475 to page 430, while my DH snored gently at my side :-).
    Mind you, I just have to go from loving reading about domestic bliss to actually doing doing the work necessary to achieve it.
    Anyway, just wanted to say thanks, I love your work and Simple Abundance is my all time favourite book too. I bought it when it first came out and have read it every day since. I write in the margins and it is absolutely scrawled on and falling to bits, but I love seeing how I have changed and grown over the years.

    Lots of love

  2. Oh, I loved the glimpse into your habits… I have two kindles and an iPad! The original first edition turned pages with the slightest graze… That excerpt about slipping into another world…. Beautiful!

  5. I love my kindle fire. For some reason I seem to be able to read more with my digital device than paper and hardbacks. I do love to look at my collection of books on my desk though. At night I turn down the brightness on the kindle fire to low so that I can fall asleep easier and it doesnt disturb my husband.

  7. I absolutely loved “The School of Essential Ingredients”! I recently read her newer one – “The Lost Art of Mixing” and it was just as enjoyable – maybe a little more melancholy, though.

  9. I use my Kindle every night. When I retired earlier this year, my office gave me a Kindle and a huge basket with all the luxuries to go with it. I do read on into the night and so mornings are very difficult. Lots of coffee to wake up!

  11. Oh, I love reading in bed. Ultimate luxury for me is sleeping in on a Saturday, then grabbing a book off the nighttable and reading in bed for a while before getting up. That doesn’t really happen right now with two wee ones, but someday it will again. And I loved that book as well!

  13. Taking deep, soul soothing sniffs of a kindle simply does not contain within it the same satisfying sense as sniffing a book.And if you drop a book in the bath there is still hope for its recovery.

    I too love to read – and, really, I have nothing against kindles. They would likely be far more easy to manage when one is snuggled deep down in bed with the covers pulled snug under one’s chin.
