RaeLovesToRead @MicheleinPhilly If it's like it was on Saturday no one will... they had a proper rave going on somewhere. It was cute at 10pm but when it got to 3am and they were still rocking out to Natasha Bedingfield I was not impressed! 🤣🤣 9mo

If Gladstone read this travelogue that was gifted to him by the author (see earlier post), he must have bailed halfway through as several of the pages haven't been cut. So I might have to go the Project Gutenberg route if I want to find out what Rev. Christie experienced in the East and South of Russia. (Not a great deal if the first half of the book is anything to go by.)

julesG Interesting way to find out if someone bailed on a book that was gifted to them 9mo

I always find some eye catching title in Gladstone's. And this time an inscription I can only partly decipher!
"The Right Honourable ?? Gladstone MP with the Author's compliments (compls)
Carlisle Nov(?) 10th 1878"

LeeRHarry WE Gladstone if it‘s the former British PM 😊 very cool! (edited) 10mo

Unpacked my book pile at our #readingretreat.

I‘ve not had one of the rooms with the posh book wallpaper before!

#gladstonerds

rockpools ❤️❤️❤️ I‘m quite jealous of your book heap. I think I ended up taking most of my ‘real‘ books out. Except the Wombles. If anyone needs to borrow the Wombles this weekend, just let me know! 10mo
rockpools Also 🎉Wallpaper & Roberts Radio🎉 10mo
squirrelbrain You can borrow one if you wish! @rockpools 10mo

squirrelbrain And WHY the Wombles?! @rockpools 10mo
rockpools @squirrelbrain And there was me planning to read all of my ARCs I‘ve ever acquired since the dawn of time 😘 10mo
rockpools @squirrelbrain Heading to Scotland after. Not for me, honest guv! 10mo
TheKidUpstairs Enjoy!!! If I win the lottery one of these years, I'd love to fly over and join you all on retreat 😁 Great reading stack! 10mo
Cinfhen Wonderful stack! Enjoy 💚 10mo
squirrelbrain We‘d love you to join us @TheKidUpstairs ! 😃 10mo
squirrelbrain I‘m looking forward to starting it @Mitch although I‘ve gone in with the new Richard Osman first…. 10mo
BarbaraBB Looking so good! That wallpaper and that radio. And the books of course. Enjoy to the max! Next year @Cinfhen and I will join you 🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽 10mo
MicheleinPhilly @BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I‘m planning on it too. ☺️ 10mo
Cinfhen Yay!!! That would be awesomesauce @MicheleinPhilly - I‘ve been thinking of you xx ohhh, another reason to make it happen @BarbaraBB 🩷🩷🩷 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @MicheleinPhilly Look forward to meeting you all next year!! 🥰🥰 10mo
MicheleinPhilly @Cinfhen I‘m surviving. 😘😘 10mo
squirrelbrain @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB @MicheleinPhilly - we‘ll decide on dates very soon and let you all know! 10mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much Helen xx just hoping the Jewish Holidays won‘t interfere 💜🙏🏻 10mo
Cinfhen @MicheleinPhilly all the love 💕 💕 💕 10mo
squirrelbrain Ohhh of course @Cinfhen - I think we might not have much choice on weekends, due to other Littens‘ commitments, but when are your Holidays next year and we‘ll see what we can do? (edited) 10mo
Cinfhen Obviously do what‘s best for you guys but luckily the Jewish Holidays don‘t fall out until the first week of October next year🤩 so I think early/mid September should be fine 🥰 10mo
squirrelbrain @Cinfhen - we‘ll try not to do October then! 😘 10mo
squirrelbrain @cinfhen - the only weekend we can do is the same one next year, so it will be Thurs 26th Sept until Sunday 30th. Does that work for you? I‘ll drop you an email later this afternoon anyway with more info. 10mo
Cinfhen RH begins Wednesday October 2 so it might be too close as there‘s a lot to prepare 🥺 im not ruling it out - I‘ll check flights and speak to my husband and see what he thinks. Thanks so much, Helen xxxx 10mo
squirrelbrain Oh no! You could always leave late on the Saturday maybe. Most of us leave after lunch on Sunday so you wouldn‘t miss much then. @cinfhen 10mo
squirrelbrain Leave it with us though @Cinfhen - we‘re going to have a chat, see if we can do it 2 weeks earlier. 😘 10mo
Cinfhen So sweet but you all come first 😘😘😘 10mo
BarbaraBB @MicheleinPhilly You‘re really thinking of coming? That would be awesome! (edited) 10mo
BarbaraBB Let‘s know the final schedule Helen and I‘ll see if I can come. Would love to! @Cinfhen 10mo
CBee @squirrelbrain would you let me know as well? Right now I don‘t know if it‘s even possible for me to come, but I want to so badly! 10mo
squirrelbrain Hi @CBee - we‘ve picked Thursday 10th October next year, for 3 nights. Drop me an email to helenharrogate at gmail dot com and we can discuss further, if you wish. I hope you can come! 😘 10mo
CBee @squirrelbrain will do! 😊 10mo
LeeRHarry I‘m always hoping to make it one day too 😊 depending on when I‘m over in the UK visiting the family - the 10th is actually my birthday so if I was to come I might come for another day that weekend as my brother lives in North Wales so I could 🤞make it work. 😊 9mo
squirrelbrain That would be fab @leerharry - even if you only stay a night or two, or just pop in for the day! 9mo
Megabooks How cool! 9mo

This picture was taken two months ago today at Gladstone‘s Library. I miss the #fireplace and the food and the company and the bonging church clock and…

I bet it‘s lovely there with Christmas decorations. #DivineDecember

Eggs Perfect 🤩 2y

RaeLovesToRead Miss you all! 🥰🥰🥰 My sister was there with my Mum the other day. I was so jealous!! Although I'm living it up in York so I can hardly complain too much 😉🙃 2y

Treasure found at Gladstone's. The Book of the Goat. By the British Goat Society. Containing Full Particulars of Breeds of Goats and Their Profitable Management.
The publisher also has "Book of the Rabbit - a charming book for rabbit fanciers", "Pig Keeping for Amateurs", and "Fancy Mice" which "goes thoroughly into the subject".
