Books & Reading Bring Back Paper

Papery Peep March 2016

It’s Papery Peep! Time for me to share with you my papery world this month, and I have to say, it’s been fairly busy on the paper front.

Mother’s Day brought me hand made cards from my little ones, along with a Paperchase treat…

And I also received a Waterstones gift card, so I made my way to Waterstones that very afternoon and picked up…

A little later in the month, I simply could not resist a few bargains that I spotted, and as they were in the name of my OU course, I really had no choice but to buy them…

These three were less than a tenner put together. You see, no choice?

My good friend Iona (Redpeffer) popped over for a cuppa and a catch up, and bought books with her – the best kind of guest?! So we both swapped a few reads and I ended up with this lovely little bundle…

I did then post this snap on Instagram a couple of weeks back as I was taking a tea break whilst planning my penultimate Open University assignment. I was surrounded by paper and post-it notes! It is now all written and submitted, phew.

Assignment time

I’ve received some lovely letters this month, all pretty and newsy, so just perfect. I’ve also taken out a subscription to the BBC History magazine, and I’ve enjoyed reading the first one that arrived last weekend.

On my #BringBackPaper Pledge:

I’ve read 5 books this month, so still on track. It’s actually felt quite slow, as I read three quickly then the fourth took a while, then I sped through the fifth. I read Gone by Mo Hayder, The Year I Met You by Cecelia Ahern, The Wedding Trap by Tracy Anne Warren, The King’s Daughter by Christie Dickason and The Last Letter From Your Lover by Jojo Moyes. I found the first two to be better than the third and fourth and I really enjoyed my first Jojo Moyes book. I have still managed to resist buying stationery. Of course it helped that I had some as a gift, and received my Happy Paper Club box and National Stationery Week bundle, but even so, I have resisted purchasing!

So how about you? Do share any papery posts here, whether they be books, paper crafts, planners, stationery picks – it all goes.



The linky will close at midnight Tuesday 5th April 2016.

How’s your month been in paper?

Oh, and do pop back next week when I’ll be launching a stationery swap!
