Late Summer Rain

I really enjoy reading short stories on holiday. Not normally a 'more than one book on the go at a time' woman short stories give a break from the main book, a change when able to read for extended leisurely periods of time. I remember reading Katherine Mansfield at school and have wanted to read more of her. A beautiful birthday gift meant here was my opportunity.

There were some days like this..
'It had been raining all the morning, later summer rain, warm, heavy, quick, and now the sky was clear, except for a long tail of little clouds, like ducklings, sailing over the forest.' Mr & Mrs Dove (in Something childish but very natural by Katherine Mansfield


  1. I am a bad reader. I very much need to learn to read more inspiring work than the latest crime fiction.

  3. Anna - I don't read crime fiction because I'd find it too frightening...

  4. Recently, I haven't even had time for a short story! What is this life if full of care we have no time to read even a SHORT STORY! Lovely quote. Been a bit like that weatherwise today.

  5. I read my first book of short stories when I was away with work. I really liked it

  6. Cathy - Hope you find a little extra time soon.
    Linsey - What book of short stories did you read? Hello on this blog & not just twitter.


Ooh how lovely more stripes on the page...
Thank you for taking the time.
