Our Vicar’s Wife was very touched to have lots of you pop over to visit her, so do keep saying hello! Carole asked me if Our Vicar would complete the family of bloggers… well, we can ask him, but I’m not sure he’ll take the bait. We’ll see.
I mentioned my Book Group the other day – well, our next meet-up is November 13th, and we nominated potential books for a poll. At the moment my suggestion, Tove Jansson’s Fair Play, is winning, with 7 votes to 2. Looking likely that it will prevail, and I thought I’d take the opportunity to extend the group to all readers of S-i-a-B as well. Fancy joining in?
I’ve not read Fair Play, but loved A Summer Book and The Winter Book by Jansson, also author of the Moomin books. Her writing is beautiful and evocative and did I mention beautiful? It;s about two woman growing old together on an island, I think… “philosophically calm – and discreetly radical” according to the blurb. Would be great if people fancied reading it before November 13th and sharing their views, so that I can take a barrage of opinions along to the book group! If you want to, then it’s here for Amazon UK, and currently in the buy-one-get-one-half-price in Borders… Sorry US-residents, you might have to take sneakier routes.
