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.

If Walls Could Talk: An Intimate History of the Home - Lucy Worsley This turned out to be a less-than-appealling read for me. Companion edition to a television programme on the BBC, historian Lucy Worsley takes the reader on a tour and history of four rooms in the modern home -- the bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen. Unfortunately, the author squanders the opportunity to educate by focusing on how nasty, dirty and vile the past was. I would suggest Bill Bryson or Judith Flanders' much more complete books in place of this one which was dull and pretty boring. Only three stars and not recommended.
