One of the many joys of moving house is rediscovering books you'd forgotten about. I find that once a book has been on a certain shelf, in a certain position, for a while, the eye kind of skates over it, so you stop noticing it. Taking books out of boxes and stacking them in all-new places means I notice those poor neglected volumes again. It also means I don't need to visit the library or buy any new books for a while, since the 'To Be Read' pile beside my bed is practically tall enough to see over the rooftops and all the way to the mountains.

Here's a taste of some of the delights I have ahead of me; many are re-reads, but there are some I haven't read at all yet:

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets, Eva Rice

Playing With the Grown-ups, Sophie Dahl

The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern

The Conjuror's Bird, Martin Davies

I Capture the Castle, Dodie Smith

Jigs and Reels, Joanne Harris

The Secret of Lost Things, Sheridan Hay

And, I confess, there is one library book among them. Having recently read and loved 'The Thirteen Tale' by Diane Setterfield, I couldn't resist taking out 'Bellman and Black' by her when I noticed it on the shelf the other day.

*Sigh* Literary bliss.
