Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Georgian Star (Great Discoveries Series) - Michael Lemonick A very good book that helps to make science less scary. This slim book (it's under 200 pages) introduces the lives and times and works of William and Caroline Herschel, a brother and sister from Hanover, Germany who helped to design a system of charting and cataloging the night skies, and identifying the planet Uranus, the first planet that was discovered with telescopes rather than the naked eye. I enjoyed this one very much, and it gets five stars from me.
