the gentle kindness of those who love books.

what can I do? a fellow book-lover and gentle, kind soul said.

team gloria thought about it for a while and said: I might well need some delicious tomes to help soothe away the fears of surgery and aid recovery after………

oh I have all sorts of things in mind….. she replied.

we sighed, gratefully, and went about our day (job) with as much grace as one could muster in the light of imminent throat-slitting.

then – today – on team gloria’s (day job) desk – OH such JOY – books and postcards wrapped up in a dove grey christian dior shade ribbon!

cue cutaway shot of overwhelming emotion…….

thank you, lady-of-letters :)

  1. What a delicious thing to do, and a yummy set of books…

    Depending upon your tastes and mood, I might recommend adding Amy Lemmon’s book of poetry, Saint Nobody, or some of the delectable short love stories in My Mistress’s Sparrow is Dead, edited by Jeffrey Eugenides.

    Sending good thoughts…

do say something - do :-)
