Books on my Christmas pressie 'wish list' (Book one)

 On reading through the weekend papers, I have found a couple of books that I would definitely like to see in my Christmas stocking.  The first one being the memoir, "And Furthermore" by Judi Dench (Weidenfeld & Nicolson £20).  Here we go again on the theme of "women of a certain age", and Dame Judi Dench certainly gets it right every time. Believe it or not, Dame Judi will be 76 this year, but certainly remains a woman not to be trifled with.  She is quoted as saying that she is  looking forward to playing ever more unlikely and daring roles in the future.

Oooh I would love this book too. I have a few on my Christmas list [my husband loves buying me books but is disappointed that I read them so fast. I can't help it! lol]

Dame Judy is stunning, isn't she/ Both her and Helen Mirren are huge favorites of mine.

Hi there SkippyMom. So glad that you like my blog. I think a lot of us are finding each other through Bouncin'Barb!! Helen Mirren is certainly another favourite of mine, and will probably be mentioned in my blog soon, as she is another woman of "a certain age".
