Reading green

This post is linked with: Booking Through, Thursday 13 

Does your current mood affect your reading? Affect your choices?
It does. This week I'm in the mood for the St Patrick's day color so I'm reading a book of nature quotations. Its cover is of course green. Men are from Mars, women are from Venus is up next. Its cover also happens to be green.

Thursday 13: Random things that are green in honor of St Patrick's Day.

On my old computer desk
1-  poinsettia leaves on my tea cup
2 - candelabra 'legs' and a bowl where I put water for flowers to float in it
3 - coffee table book of nature quotations

On my dresser
4 - key and coin dish, Marks & Spencer hand lotion
5 - essay on political negotiation tactics
6 - vintage hand bag and ear rings
7 - books: Men are from Mars..., Piano preludes and postludes, Hallelujah Chorus

My restaurant brunch yesterday (I deliberately chose the greens from the menu)
8 - green shumai
9 - green tea ice cream
10 - green noodles with pakchoy and braised beef

On the pages of my illustrated and picture books
11 - birthstone, Everyday handbook for magical mothers by Mary Cicely Barker
12 - Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
13 - the May fairy by Mary Cicely Barker


  1. I was looking around my house, and I don't have hardly anything that's green. Strange, especially since my husband is part Irish. LOL. Happy Thursday!

  2. Haha. I like that, chosing by color in honor to an event. Reminds me I still have to read The Christmas Sweater this year in that season, and the cover is, of course, red and white.
    Thanks a lot for sharing. My BTT

  3. Wow, I love all the green and the pictures of food look too pretty to eat. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I do love St. Patrick's Day...and my whole bedroom could be a tribute, as I call it my Ireland Room. In honor of the year my son spent living there and photographing special places. I also collected a few Irish things and created a vignette on my rolltop desk that's next to the bed. Love your "green" vignettes.

    Here's MY BTT POST

  5. Like you, I have a lot of green around me. Nice one.

  6. Nice pictures, enjoyed them.

  7. Great idea for a T13 list. I'm sure I could have done something like this many times over, just with book covers, lol.

  8. that's a neat idea. selective vision can work sometimes.

  9. I love how you have organized your post!

  10. I, too, often find myself reading books that are in the spirit of the season, whatever that my be... Here's my BTT post!
