Books I found and read at Gladstone's Library.
An award winning stream of consciousness novel, a 19th Century travelogue, and a small poetry collection.

Books I brought and read:
Ghosts from the Library (anthology), the last half of Holly, the first half of How to Build a Boat.

Cupcake12 Are there any plans for a retreat trip this year? 5mo
julesG @Cupcake12 Yes, from October 10-13. Would be great to see/meet you there. You best ask @squirrelbrain for the booking details - there might be a discount. 5mo
squirrelbrain Hi @Cupcake12 - it would be lovely to have you along. If you email Gladstone‘s with the dates and give them my name (Helen Thain) they‘ll add you onto our group booking - there was a discount up until the end of 2023 but I‘m sure they‘ll roll it forward for you. Let me know if you do book and we can add you onto our group chat for afternoon tea bookings etc. 5mo
Cupcake12 @squirrelbrain thank you. I‘ve just emailed them to make an enquiry x 5mo
squirrelbrain Let us know how you get on! @Cupcake12 5mo

So pretty! I also found a book called the Henwife, a big book on Forestry and Forest Products, and a massive tome called Hints on Farming. They are placed directly below a shelf with such titles as "The Mammoth and the Flood" and "Mount Vesuvius". The implications are clear. If we end up in a post-Apocalyptic state, Gladstone's is the place for city folks to go to learn 19th Century survival skills.
#Gladstonerds #ReadingRetreat

rockpools Well that‘s reassuring! 2y
Oryx I like that you always think ahead 2y
Leniverse @rockpools @Oryx You never know when you might need the info found in "A Treatise on Manures", "Thorough Cultivation", or "Fowls for the Times"! Not entirely sure of the usefulness of "The Pansy". I'm in love with this corner of the library. 2y
rockpools @Leniverse Fowls for the Times! That sounds like essential reading 🐓 2y

Two books read and halfway through the third.
The McCarthy I didn't care for. The Winterson was alright but not my fave by her. Both were rather grim and violent. The Stephen King is positively feelgood in comparison.

Afternoon tea at Gladstone‘s Library #readingretreat.

There has been much discussion about cream or jam first on your scone, and also whether scone rhymes with bone or gone!

Soubhiville I love it! 2y
Ruthiella Fantastic! 2y

Graywacke Looks lovely. I refuse to eat a scon, though. 2y
squirrelbrain Is that because you‘ll only eat scones!? @graywacke I completely concur, but most people were eating scons this afternoon! 🤣 2y
LeahBergen As an ignorant Canadian … it is “scon” and the jam goes on top of the cream. 😆 2y
Mitch @LeahBergen cream first! 2y
eanderson I love this!!! Enjoy!!💕 2y
Sparklemn For sure cream first! 🐮 2y
Graywacke @squirrelbrain yes, exactly. @LeahBergen but maybe if it had cream and jam I could consider a “scon” 2y

A beautiful morning here in North Wales on our #readingretreat.

@julesG and I went out for an audio walk / sit in the sunshine before settling down for a day‘s reading in the library.

We also bumped into Catherine @CGainor3 and Emma @Oryx out enjoying the sunshine.

Oryx Just posted a very similar pic! Beautiful walk. I passed the permit on to @scripturient 2y

Going to spend the #20in4 #readathon at Gladstone's Library with a group of wonderful Littens.

I'm hoping to read King's new book (we've planned an in-person buddyread) and Kuang's Babel.
