Busy busy busy at the moment. Off to London today to see Once, and yesterday my team won the Abingdon Book Quiz put on by Mostly Books. It’s all GO. The quiz is always great fun; this year we had Annabel on our team, as she was taking a year off from writing the questions. And I picked up a few books as prizes or the book swap – Hawthorn and Child by Keith Ridgway (after John Self raved so much about it), Love, Nina by Nina Stibbe, and Humor by Stanley Dorwood (mostly for the beautiful cover).
Not really a Weekend Miscellany, but thought I’d direct you to a couple of the Shiny New Books reviews I wrote…
The Small Widow by Janet McNeill – one for anybody who liked All Passion Spent by Vita Sackville-West.
The Happy Tree by Rosalind Murray – the latest Persephone title, and a worthy addition.
