Welcome to this glorious new year ahead!! 2019 looks like it might turn out to be a promising one!! I’d like to take this moment and thank those who have chosen to follow my blog! It means so much to know that the words I write reaches to you and guides you in your reading choices.
Summer is still beating down on us here in New Zealand, so I thought I would continue with the theme of summer this month. Some of the titles featured this month are ones I had read a few years ago and enjoyed. Although many of the American authors feature summer camps and such, these ones that I enjoyed had an extra element to them.
So, sit back and enjoy these January summer reads!!

Hi all, today is a special post. I thought I would explain a little more on my fascination on archaeology.

Whether it’s in the form of a clay pot used to house grains or the remains of palaces buried deep under layers of sand! And yes, the whole Indiana Jones side of it comes into play too!! I hope you enjoy the books I’ve selected for this special post! Continue reading “Adventure in archaeology”
