Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine this weekend! I’m mourning the fact that my lovely boss has left OUP, and she’s pretty much the most fab boss ever, so we should probably just close OUP and start again. BUT a link, blog post, and book never hurt anybody.
Before I go further, though, the winner of the Cornelia Otis Skinner book Nuts in May is – Rosemary Hopkins! Well done, Rosemary! I’ll be in touch soon. For everybody else – do make sure you track down something by her.
1.) The book – I treated myself to the beautiful In Search of Rex Whistler by Hugh and Mirabel Cecil after reading Lyn’s very persuasive post about it, and (of course) Anna Thomasson’s A Curious Friendship. It’s definitely spoiling myself, but Anna’s book left me super keen to see more of Rex Whistler’s work, and this book has lots of images.
2.) The blog post – you’ve got time to join in Mary Hocking Reading Week! Let Ali explain it all… (Oh, and Sylvia Townsend Reading Week has been extended to a month, so I should manage to at least finish the short story I started.)
3.) The link – I couldn’t really think of a link this week, but the most recent xkcd cartoon is one that gets my full support…
