The list of books I'd like to read grows ever longer as I collect additional titles from here and there. This morning, for instance, I read a review of Tom Service's Music as Alchemy: Journeys with Great Conductors and their Orchestras - the title says it all, really, and it sounds like a fascinating and very accessible study.
Then this post from The History Girls had me rushing to bookmark The Knot by Jane Borodale, "the perfect book for the green-fingered reader": a sixteenth century herb garden, a manor house, a scholar, "great anguishe of mynd"...
Having enjoyed Clare Leighton's Four Hedges so much (I quoted from it here, here and here), I was looking at the website of its publisher Little Toller Books, an imprint of The Dovecote Press, to see what else they have. H.E. Bates' Through the Woods is now in my sights; a portrait of a woodland through a year, and a magical cover image by the wonderful Nicholas Hely Hutchinson.
What's on your wish list - real or notional? What have you spotted recently that you'd especially like to read?
