I slowly get the hang of this blogging thing and all because of you, yes you 🙂
My latest blog post “Journal Haul” took me a little while to create however when I now see it the pictures are all over the shop.
Apologies peeps, I had it all nicely layed out (Is “layed” the word?).
I am not sure how I am able to write posts with the formatting I want but I am sure I will improve with time.
Please be patient with me and I shall get better 🙂
By now all my followers here and peeps that came by to have a look would know that I am an avid reader. Thankfully I have passed this on to my two children.
Anyway, as there are so many interesting titles and genres available I found the best site to purchase my books to be the Book Depository.
I have no idea how many books my two babies and I have purchased over the years… I lost count. Nevertheless I have not ever had a drama. On one occasion I waited patiently for an edition but 5 weeks later I asked the question if it could be tracked as it may have been lost somewhere between the UK and Australia. A reply in less than 24 hours offered me a choice between a refund or a replacement, I chose the latter which eventually arrived. I wasn’t in a hurry as I didn’t plan it as a gift but rather for my own amusement.
This was the only time ever I had to get in contact until today that is….
In my latest order I included a Moleskine Booklight which would have been a fantastic tool for a late-night reader like me. However – after 24 hours charging it wouldn’t work. Silly me only now researched the item and it seems to be a common issue.

So – I wrote my problem into the “Contact Us” box and sent it off. Just over 3 hours later and I have already received the most polite apology and agreement that these lights possibly do not ship well. The kind Lucy than advised that the refund has already been issued as she cannot guarantee that a replacement item will work any better.
That my friends is service.
Well done Book Depository. I may have lost my booklight but I will not leave you in a hurry.
Stay safe and take care as always, J. xx
I have been splurging at the end of July coming right into August:
2. Bookdepository (my favourite book shop 🙂 )
Having lost her husband, her parents, and her two young sons to the Nazi exterminators, Olga Lengyel had little to live for during her seven-month internment in Auschwitz. Only Lengyel’s work in the prisoners’ underground resistance and the need to tell this story kept her fighting for survival. She survived by her wit and incredible strength. Despite her horrifying closeness to the subject, FIVE CHIMNEYS does not retreat into self-pity or sensationalism. When first published (two years after World War 2 ended), Albert Einstein was so moved by her story that he wrote a personal letter to Lengyel, thanking her for her “”very frank, very well written book””. Today, with ‘ethnic cleansing’ in Bosnia, and neo-Nazism on the rise in western Europe, we cannot afford to forget the grisly lessons of the Holocaust. FIVE CHIMNEYS is a stark reminder that the unspeakable can happen wherever and whenever ethnic hatreds, religious bigotries, and racial discriminations are permitted to exist.
