337 by M. Jonathan Lee @mjonathanlee – #337LEE – #bookreview – @HideawayFall @lovebooksgroup #lovebookstours

337 by Jonathan M Lee is such an usual book both in its physical form and the way you read it. You’ll notice I’m sure from looking at my photo that the way 337 is printed could be read as the author’s surname, Lee, if you turn the book upside down. If you turn the … More 337 by M.

Fifty Words for Snow by Nancy Campbell #bookreview @eandtbooks @nancycampbelle @alisonmenziespr

Fifty Words for Snow is a beautiful hardback book which rather unusually uses blue print perhaps reflecting the shade we associate with the cold. I love snow, perhaps because it’s not something we see very often here in Portobello since we’re right by the sea. Nancy Campbell takes her readers on a trip around the … More Fifty Words for Snow by Nancy Campbell #bookreview @eandtbooks @nancycampbelle @alisonmenziespr
