Comment: Thank you for the great photos of Moor Street Station. I had no trouble at all opening them. I've been in that area, traveling by train from London to Wolverhampton and back, several years ago. I remember going through Birmingham as we considered getting off there to find something to eat.

Comment: First off, thank you so much for the beautiful picture on canvas! I'm going to frame it and hang it on the wall. Second, I couldn't agree with you more about this book. In fact, my last paragraph about it to Renee was almost identical to yours -- I read that same interview with the author. For me, the author not reading the source material for this book reflects not only on her, but also on the series as a whole. How am I suppose to trust a series that claims it's remixing classics if they aren't even reading the classics to begin with?

Comment: Betty!! Oh my goodness!!! I am sitting here, typing this, in awe at your stuffed envelope. It has so much thought and personal touches to it and I feel like I just won the lottery through this swap. You are such a kind soul and I thoroughly enjoyed reading over everything. I honestly do not have a ‘favorite’ item because I love it all. I’m glad you took the chance on the Advent calendar..it is a nice activity for this crazy and hectic holiday month. Take care. I would love to send you an envelope with stuff from me! Take care and merry Christmas.

Comment: Another fascinating list of books! I downloaded your attachments and email so I can refer back. Several of those I do want to add. I just read a piece about the Appalachian Trail and thought it'd be cool to do. I don't think I'm up to the whole journey, but maybe a bit of it at a time. I'd love to see that part of the country. I lived in Tennessee when I was little, but haven't been along the trail there.

I felt like it was an assignment -- "Write a novel in the gothic style and include at least 3 atrocities." You articulated what I was feeling when you said the problem was that we were looking in from the outside. Yes! I just couldn't get attached to any of the characters or feel immersed in the story. Also, thank you soooooo much for the beautiful postcard and little jackdaw drawing! I'm really excited to add the postcard to my collection.

Comment: 'Wifedom: Mrs. Orwell's Invisible Life" is now on my list because it sounds super interesting, much like books written about Charles Dickens's wife. Have you read 'The Invisible Woman' by Claire Tomalin? I also read 'Convenience Store Woman' but I wasn't too sure about it. It was the audiobook version also so maybe a reread is in order. The rest of your books sounded intriguing! Thanks for the great reviews. xxMuggleMom

Such detail in this photo! The picture of the goat made me laugh. It looks like it is smiling for you! The pregnant seal looks so content resting on the sand. It looks like she has a smile on her face too. All the photos are impeccable and such a joy to look at!

It's interesting there's a small case for the bag. I'll try not to lose it and might use in my U.S. travels.

Comment: Some great books! I have to know, though, is it THE Elizabeth Taylor who wrote the Mrs. Palfrey book? I think maybe that's a series? I'm putting down "Baking Bad" as one to read when I want a light-hearted mystery. I used to read SO many of those cooking cozies! Loved them! Thanks for the reviews!
Response: Nope, a different Elizabeth Taylor! Try https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Taylor_(novelist) She wrote around a dozen novels in the 50s, 60s and 70s.

Comment: Thanks for the W.Colllins attachments because I'm eager to read them and also Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont, by Elizabeth Taylor sounds excellent.

Comment: Betty, you had a lot of 'murdery' books on your list, lol! I'm so glad you mentioned A Song of Comfortable Chairs. I've read all the books but when they switched narrators on books # 21&22, I about lost my mind but I see they have the original narrator back for #23!! More of Mr J.L.B. Matekoni please! I've also added a few books from your list, even the work-related books. The Invention of Murder: how the Victorians revelled in Death and Detection and created Modern Crime by Judith Flanders sounds great. Have you read any of Kate Summerscales Victorian murder research books. I think I've read 3 of her books and I hope she writes more!. xxMuggleMom
Response: Thanks! I had a feeling that some of the work-related books would interest you, and I suspect the ones I'm going to be reading over the next few months will be the same. That's why I like doing this swap with you and Carol -- we're all willing to consider books from right across the genre spectrum! I think you'd like the Flanders and her other books as well if you've not read them. I haven't read any of the Kate Summerscales yet but they're on my list!

The new Lucy Worsley book is on my TBR list so I'll have to push it up to read soon. Worsley always does a great job showing her research I find. Still slowly ticking away at all the Agatha series.

Sounds like a book I would have picked up myself for sure. I had the same response to The Midnight Library as you did. I think I gave it 3 stars mainly because Carey Mulligan was the narrator. I might give Haven by Emma Donaghue a chance because I have liked 2 out of the 4 books I've read of hers, kinda hit or miss. I think I bought the audio.com Father Brown series (love Mark Williams in the TV series - but he'll always be Arthur Weasley in my eyes) and I'll have to check into the rest of the books you mention as well as the link to the program.

Comment: I really enjoyed looking at the photos you selected for the scavenger hunt! The glass window photo taken in Iceland is beautiful - especially with the view of the city in them! What a fun experience to see the steam train! I would have been taking lots of photos of it as well. The clothing - dresses and shoes - are so colorful. I feel like I traveled around the world and at different times by looking at your photos!

Comment: Love your review and I can't believe I didn't have Miss Pettigrew Lives for A Day on my tbr list. I loved the movie so I'm putting that down next because it works for my book club's November genre also! I'm very interested in how you like Haven by Emma Donoghue as I love love her novel "The Pull of the Stars" but didn't like her "Room" story. Can't win them all I guess. Added "Bad Day at the Vulture Club" on the tbr list. Last but not least I started "Girl, Woman, Other" and Anna-Maria Nabirye's narration is fantastic! It feels like she's my friend and we are having a long heart to heart chat so far. Its an easy 5 star for me already! xxMuggleMom
Response: I've not seen the movie but a lot of reviewers reckon the book of 'Miss Pettigrew' is even better. I look forward to seeing what you think. And so far I'm loving 'Haven'.

Anyways, great pick in a postcard and I love that you included a Pride stamp! I didn't know the UK had even issued one so that was a lovely addition. I hope you and your wife enjoyed the festivities in Birmingham! Having a queer hiking group sounds awesome! I'd love to be a part of one in my area--I'll have to check! Thanks so much!!
Response: And if there isn't a queer hiking group in your area, maybe you could start one! The Pride stamps are great. The Royal Mail actually issued a group of 8 Pride stamps -- 4 first class and 4 for international letters.

The yellow blossoms are a welcome sign of spring each year. Beautiful work on the photo notecards. Apple blossoms are another one of my favourite springtime blossoms. I love the close-up poppy photo. Great package BH. Thank you!
Response: I've just bought a good book, The Lensball Photography Handbook by Marvin Lei which is helping me understand better what I can do with it. (There are various other lensball books on Amazon -- mostly useless and worth avoiding!) But the main thing is, as you suggest, just playing and experimenting. One warning -- avoid using it in direct sunlight -- it focuses the sun's rays like a magnifying glass (remember setting fire to paper when we were kids?) and you can get burnt. I say that from experience!

Comment: Great email as we both chose the same book. I, too, knew of the book & movie but hadn't read/seen either - still haven't seen the movie yet. I was impressed but I would have liked the author to go into more detail about the harsh racism that people of color experienced on a daily basis in that timeframe. Racism is an element in the book but it is not gritty and seems "glossed over". I get that the story is about succeeding when everyone else had failed or given up but I think the "teacher" deserves more credit for showing up every day to teach and inspire when his own world was as difficult as the students. In the book, Mr. Braithwaite basically goes home and comes back to teach and we never really hear about his life, his fears, his dreams, all the obstacles he overcomes to put on a suit and show up to work, etc... I hope your surgery is easy and you are back to rights as soon as possible. Thanks for hosting these swaps, #2 is already read & done. I've got my book for #3 too- I wonder if we will pick the same book again?! xxMuggleMom

Comment: Many thanks for the great shots loved them ALL … and I didn’t know the term turnstone (great Irish seabird) I’m thinking we call them something else on “this side of the pond.” Maybe tern?
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart, Lou. No, a turnstone and a tern are different -- turnstones are part of the sandpiper family and live all along the UK coast. I've just looked them up (https://www.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-wildlife/wildlife-guides/bird-a-z/turnstone/) and it looks like we have some resident ones and some that migrate each year from Canada and Greenland.

Comment: What an interesting list. I have The Man Who Died Twice on my to read list, but didn't know it was a series. The Graham Law, Serializing Fiction in the Victorian Press sounds like a fantastic read. I'll be requesting it as an ILL next time I have a book pickup. Also, I didn't know about the BBC radio books. I listen to the BBC World Book Club, but wasn't aware of the free audio book. I mostly use Hoopla (supported by your local library) or YouTube (just learned today the entire Disc World series is on there.
Response: Have a look to see if you can download BBC Sounds, which is the portal to on-demand BBC radio. I've Googled 'BBC Sounds and USA' and it looks possible -- see https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/help/questions/listening-outside-the-uk/listen-outside-uk#:~:text=You%20can%20listen%20to%20most,from%20anywhere%20in%20the%20world. (sorry that's such a long URL!). BBC Radio 4 does a Book of the Week (usualy non-fiction) and a Book at Bedtime (fiction) as well as a fun programme called A Good Read where they get two prominent people on to recommend and discuss a favourtie book. Good luck and thanks for the rating.

It made no sense and was just disappointing. So I do understand that feeling. But with 2 'bad' ones out of the way, the rest of the year will be better, right? :) Here's hoping!

Some mysteries do not hold up well--I was reading a Rex Stout not long ago and it was so full of racist dialog that I'm embarassed to give it to Goodwill. Thanks for the swap. Susan (brooklynbunch)

Comment: Betty, your tree postcard came in today's mail! You did some intricate cutting on it. I loved the little rabbit by the base of the tree! And thanks for using some unique (to me) stamps on the back - I have never heard of Postman Pat, but I'm guessing he's a mascot like our Mr. Zip. Thank you so much for a nice swap! I hope we get partnered again in the future! Happy 2019!!
Response: Thanks for the rating and for being my partner. Postman Pat is a character from children's TV -- probably anyone who was a pre-schooler or the mother of a pre-schooler in England during the 1980s and 1990s will have the Postman Pat song permanently in their memory! He's a rural postman and in each episode, he and his black and white cat not only deliver the mail but also get involved in other problems -- stopping a runaway train, rescuing , a cat up a tree, fixing the broken ice-cream machine and so on. Interestingly the Royal Mail did use Postman Pat as a mascot for a while as well.

Comment: Thank you for the cute zentangle inchies! What paper did you use? I like how smooth it feels.
Response: It was sold as 200 gram colour copy paper. It's made by a company called Mondi and comes in A4 sheets -- I bought a ream of it. You're right -- it's beautifully smooth and takes colour well. It's actually too thick to go smoothly through the printer where I work so I just use it for hand crafting. I bought it from Amazon UK back in 2014 and still have loads left -- I mostly do inchies and postcards and ATCs so a sheet generally makes several items. It cost just under £8 for 250 sheets.

The true statement was that I went on holiday to Bulgaria last year - we spent a few days in Sofia and then a week in Veliko Tarnova in central Bulgaria. Lovely countryside and fabulous churches, but still quite a poor country.

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful goodies package!! I'm so excited about it all :D I had to go ahead and try the chocolate (which was excellent!) and right now I'm going to make myself a lovely cup of tea :) Can't wait to try that ginger drink, jerk sauce and fish seasoning (and everything else, really!), and I truly believe that the instant oats is the best invention EVER..! I would give you 10 stars if it was possible! Thank you! <3

But besides the humorous part your parcel was great in many other ways, too. Everything's so thoughtful and so special, really unique and local, I love that. Also, thank you so much for sharing your Easter thoughts and experiences with me. They're not too different from my own actually. And thanks for the blog article, I'm glad you included them, restricting yourself is hardly ever a good thing and it really pushed my thoughts, too. We should talk about it sometime.

Comment: Lovely! I love the postcard images, article, keychain and map of Woodbrooke! I'd love to visit it if I am ever in the region. I have many friends in the UK that I've not seen in decades... :0)
Response: If you're ever coming over, let me know! I work at Woodbrooke and love showing the gardens to people. There's a wonderful Victorian kitchen garden which still provides food for the college.
