A Stuga On the Cusp of the Orust Riviera, tucked away next to a hobbit hole in the woods.

I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith World Book Night 2012 Edition, and the unique identifying # 204-10868010. Overbylass collected it from Guisborough Book Shop. THANKEE!Opening: I write this sitting in the sink. That is, my feet are in it; the rest of me is on the draining board, which I have padded with our dog's blanket and the tea-cosy.What an antidote to Even The Dogs, and from the woman who wrote 101 dalmations no less. Opened this up after finishing the last few pages that were left over from Blood Sisters, just to have a looksee. Instant love comes in the right size font coupled with chirpy journal style whimsy.Larks, this won't be long about.Really glad to have read this however I became a little bored with the breathless ingénue and the scrapes towards the end. Maybe if it had been 80-100 pages less it wouldn't have dropped down to 3*. Thanks again Overbylass for the oppurtunity.
