Do Nothing But Read Day - the plan
So here's the plan.
Get up at my usual time, eat my oatmeal and read the paper.
Make another cup of tea.
Curl up in my comfy chair (see previous DNBRD post) and commence to read.
I have a couple of books that I have almost finished, so if I haven't completed them by Sunday, they are first up. Then I have put a couple of piles of books on the table you see next to the chair. There are basically two themes: fashion (because it's fun) and Florence (because I'm going there in April).
Now, I obviously am not going to read all of these, probably just a couple, but I wanted to have some choices depending on my mood. The options are:
Living on the Edge in Leonardo's Florence, by Gene A. Brucker
Florence in the forgotten centuries, 1527-1800, by Eric W. Cochrane
The city of Florence : historical vistas and personal sightings, by R.W.B. Lewis
A Traveller's Companion to Florence
The classic ten : the true story of the little black dress and nine other fashion favorites, by Nancy McDonnell Smith
The fashion conspiracy : a remarkable journey through the empires of fashion, by Nicholas Coleridge
Silver and gold, by Norman Hartnell
D.V., by Diana Vreeland
(If anyone's read any of these, comments are welcome!)
