Books Read, Backyard Photos, and Hallowe'en at the McGill Library

Hallowe'en imagery!

These are from a flickr page by the McGill University Libraries.

Here we go with the third installment of The Books Read List! It seems like a lot, but so many are short stories, or board books for children! Also, I've noted some of the books read by my daughter that I haven't reread with her, or read at all as they're ones she's reading at school.

I also have some photos of views!

I got these because I was so excited to be able to attend the Surrey International Writers' Conference again this year, as it was all online!

There's a flock of birds in the distance...

Missing travelling...

There they are!


Vendange! Or the grape harvest. Here comes next year's wine!

Quiet afternoon by the lake

Have you attended a writing even or conference lately?


Hi Deniz - wonderful to see the McGill Flickr Images - the Struwelpeter one took me back to reading all those sorts of books that I had available to read at home! Love all the others ... and your list of books - thanks for those ... as too Emily - that's great she's enjoying new books too and educating you. Wonderful end of summer photos - here's to next year's wine. Cheers Hilary
