On The Bookshelf

You know how much I love Downton Abbey!  I would definitely have been in this line had I been around on that first day  when the Abbey opened for tours…

Well, since there won’t be any new episodes to savor I gave way to listening to two of Julian Fellowes books over the past couple of weeks.  I found them both to be very enjoyable and loved being able to pick out things among the stories that later made appearances in the beloved television series.

If you are a fan like me consider giving them a read…

It’s nice to know that the site for the fictional Downton Abbey is pup friendly in real life…

Have you read any good books this summer?

I’d love to know…

  1. Elizabeth.. so funny you should post this today. Last night we started watching Dr. Thorne. I will definitely put both books on my “must read” list. Thanks for the recommendations. Enjoy your week.

  2. If available I will put both books on my Kindle today. I have Downtown withdrawl. To make matters worse on my beach vacation, I discovered one of my college roommate’s sons just started binge-watching it this summer. We sat for about three hours on the beach discussing all the upstairs/downstairs drama. I so miss it. Thanks for sharing.

      Here is what I did – watched it all over from beginning to end this summer on Netflix. It was better the second time around if you can believe it!

  3. I showed this post to my husband and asked him how he thinks they got those dogs to pose without running around and licking themselves. We’ve got two that won’t pose properly to save their lives!

    As for the books, good to know these are around. I’m going to look for them! I miss Downton so much! Thanks for the tips!

      None of my dogs are very good at sitting for portraits either! If I ever discover the trick I’ll let you know!
