Stuck-in-a-Book's Weekend Miscellany

Well, it's wet and miserable here - but it has been beautiful, as exemplified in this picture from the road trip I took on Thursday to Toot Baldon (because of its brilliant name).  Not a bad view for our picnic, eh?



1.) The blog post - go and read Hayley's lovely, thought-provoking post about why so many of us love books as well as reading...

2.) The link - is this Youtube clip: a man being 'interviewed' by himself, from a video he made 20 years ago.  It's very clever.



3.) The book - came from Bloomsbury the other day.  I should have read this back during the Jubilee weekend, but it's still Jubilee Year, isn't it?  I'm very excited about Coronation by Paul Gallico... I'll let you know more soon!


 Have a great weekend!

  2. Thank you, as always, for point us to interesting posts on other weblogs. I love my books too (yes honest I do!), but I also love my paintings, photographs and my music as much these days. I've changed in that respect since I was a teenager when I think books would have been a clear number one.

  3. Thanks for sharing these things. I enjoyed the Desperate Reader's post and also the video. That is amazing. I have shared it to my FB page. So clever. Your picnic spot looks beautiful too. Looking forward to spring here. Pam

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!

Annoyingly, Blogger often messes up with comments... try refreshing, or commenting Anonymously (add your name in, though!) or using Firefox/Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. (Ctrl+c your comment first!)

Failing everything, email me: simondavidthomas[at]yahoo.co.uk - or just email me anyway :)

Thanks!
