Welcome Mandie, and you're from Catherine Cookson country, cool!

I'm on Library Thing, too, I don't use it to its full advantage, sigh...

Durham Cathedral was one of our favorites of the many cathedrals we visited. from before the Norman Conquest, if memory serves me right, the architecture was quite wonderful. Also liked the town.

Glad to have you here!

Hi Mandie and welcome to the board, prepare to clear space for loads of books!

I went through Durham last year on the train to Scotland, it looks a lovely place, you're lucky to live somewhere that's so stunning.
