What on a Wednesday

If my self-splurging the other day weren't enough, you can see another profile of me today! Mark Thwaite, of erudite blog and the Book Depository, asked to do a blog profile of me on the latter. I was very flattered - you may have spotted profiles of dovegreyreader and Cornflower, amongst others, over the past few weeks - and of course agreed. The result can be found by clicking here - and it's also the first time I've revealed a picture of myself, except for sketches and the like.

I mentioned a few books in the interview (who'd have thought!) so might be nice if I provided links to my reviews of them, in case anybody has wandered over from that part of the blogosphere.

Miss Hargreaves by Frank Baker
Vanessa and Virginia by Susan Sellers
The Brontes Went To Woolworths - not yet reviewed, will do soon!
The Bestowing Sun - Neil Grimmett
Yellow - Janni Visman
Angel - Elizabeth Taylor
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer
(by the way, for a chance to win the excellent Gu
ernsey Lit. etc, go along to Elaine's blog at Random Jottings and enter her prize draw!)


  1. Very nice interview! And I must get a hold of the Sellers book. I only have works by her on Helene Cixous on my shelves (!)

  2. I saw your interview--you're famous now (actually I think you are already well known in the blog world, but a mention at the Book Depository doesn't hurt either!). And I must say thanks very much for the very kind mention it's extremely appreciated. And of course the feelings are reciprocated!

  3. I'm speechless!
    I missed this when it appeared as I've been away and am just back in the swim of things, but to say I'm touched is a huge understatement. Gosh!


I've now moved to, and all my old posts are over there too - do come and say hello :)

I probably won't see your comment here, I'm afraid, but all my archive posts can also be found at
