~ Cranford ~ "The whole country round seem to be all out of tea at once. The only alteration I could have desired in Miss Matty's way of doing business was, that she should not have so plaintively entreated some of her customers not to buy green tea --running it down as a slow poison, sure to destroy the nerves, and produce all manner of evil." ~ Elizabeth Gaskell
I joined in @thenobbylife 's read along of Cranford this month and found the novel to be a delight. Others who have read it mentioned they didn't like it as much as Gaskell’s other novels. And I can understand that; there's no suspenseful plot, no sweeping romance, or dramatic moments like are found in her other novels. But, what it offers is a charming look at an English village and an endearing cast of female characters, most notably Miss Matty Jenkyns. I laughed out loud numerous times at their interactions with each other. And, I loved their spirit of community and generosity, especially when one of their own has a drastic change in financial circumstances. This is definitely a comfort read full of love and friendship.
And as much as I love tea, I wholeheartedly agree with Miss Matty's view on green tea. Give me a good stong black tea please!

Thanks Shelby for another great read along!

I’ve always had an interest in Ancient Egypt, so this Folio book totally caught my attention.

Major renovations are about to start so the books are being moved to safe quarters.
