Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Wishes 

ttt-new

Bookish wishes–this is to include you top 10 wished for books with a link to your online wish list so people can buy them for you. I’m not linking to my wish list. These are all books I want, this time just to read–I’ve done this sort of list before focusing on books I want for my collections.

Right now this is at the top of my wish list. I kept reading about it during Reading Daphne Du Maurier Week and would really like to have it. The Rebecca Notebook & Other Memories by Daphne Du Maurier.

Last year I bought his wife’s collected letters. I’ve read a previous biography of him, but I’m curious to see what new information (if any) is added. The World is Not Enough by Oliver Buckton.

A seasonal read and, it is from my favorite Dean Street Press/Furrowed Middlebrow! Win-win!

The Swiss Summer by Stella Gibbons

That’s all I’ve got this week. The items I’ve posted before are still waiting to be purchased. You can view some of those HERE if you click to read the last post we did of this topic-I have purchased the Churchill and Eden book and, in the Kindle version, the biography of Princess Mary.

  1. Betty’s Wartime Diary sounds so interesting.

    One of my grandfathers served in World War II. He was generally very reluctant to talk about his experiences due to how terrible some of them one, but we did learn a little about them as the years passed on.

    I think it’s so important for later generations to hear first-hand accounts of historical events like these (assuming it won’t harm the person sharing them).

    1. My grandfather wouldn’t talk about the war either. After his death we found citations for two medals but he’d never signed them. The things he did were very heroic. It was his job is likely how he saw it. When I watched Saving Private Ryan I realized this is where he was trying to get his truck ashore from its landing craft!!
