Day 22 of the 30 day book talk..

Favourite book that you own

Well, I've already mentioned that my favourite book is a beautiful copy of the 20th Anniversary edition of Outlander, personally signed by Diana Gabaldon...

The Fraser red of the cover is tactile and sumptuous and a perfectly fitting tribute to this wonderful story....

I've read Outlander so many times I can quite literally quote chapter and verse - however, this book is made all the more special by the spirit in which it was given to me.

My Outlander friends are a very special bunch of people....

they are my Anam Caras.....

John O'Donohue

Anam Cara is Gaelic for "Soul Friend" 

My paternal great grandparents were Irish, and I like to think that my genetic memory is comforted and inspired by the beautiful writing and soulful expressions contained within the pages of this very special little book.

Under the Paw : Confessions of a Cat Man by Tom Cox

Under the Paw: Confessions of a Cat Man

This is a laugh out loud funny book by a man who loves cats  - that's why this is one of my favourite books !
