reading material

This is what I'm reading at the moment ...
Oh Comely ~ a cool mag about creativity and quirkiness that I picked up in London
The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs ~ chick lit with a crafty plot about a woman who owns a yarn store in New York. I'm really enjoying it - no thinking required!
Gardens Illustrated ~ a British garden mag with the most beautiful photography. I bought this in London too, but I buy this mag at home in Australia regularly.
Mollie Makes ~ the new "it" craft mag ~ lovely! The new edition was released yesterday ... pity there are currently no stockists in Spain!!
Smoke ~ a "london peculiar" ~ stories celebrating modern London. Edgy, alternative, interesting - I enjoyed reading it.
Black Cab Wisdom ~ a small tome of pearls collected by a London cabbie from his passengers ... "if you think your life is bland, then you haven't added enough flavour", and "you are the pink flamingo on the great lawn of life". Genius!

What have you loved reading lately?

Hi Nic..just love the cover on the Black Cab Wisdom, those black cabs are georgeous. I've read and enjoyed Monica McInerney's 'At Home With the Templetons' and am rereading 'I Dared to Call Him Father' by Bilquis Sheikh at the moment, after finding it again after over 20 years, I am really getting into it. Have a lovely day!

What have I been reading lately? Spot loves his mum, Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes as well as We're Going on a Bear Hunt! lol. No time for grown up reading here! That "Oh Comely" mag sounds like it would be interesting.
