Stuck-in-a-Book’s Weekend Miscellany

Hope you all have nicer weekends lined up than I do.  Well, the weekend will probably be fine, it’s just that I’ve come down with a horrible cold… that stage where you feel semi-conscious all the time.  Yeah, not fun.  Lots of bed and Lemsip for me tomorrow… And it’s going to be a pretty brief miscellany, so that I can slump in a heap somewhere.  (Cue violins, etc.)

1.) You know me, I love a review of Miss Hargreaves – and I especially love this one by Chris.  Go and have a gander – and if, for some strange reason, you’ve yet to read the novel… get to it!

2.) Doesn’t The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel look wonderful?  I can’t believe Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, and Penelope Wilton are in a film together – and one that looks such heartwarming fun.

3.) A review of Diary of a Provincial Lady, you say?  Iris and Jenny are happy to oblige.

    Thanks for sharing the trailer for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. It has a wonderful cast and it looks so life affirming. I can't wait until it is in theaters.

      I know! I was hoping to see it tomorrow, but don't want to cough through the film…

      Thanks Patty!
      I'm so pleased that some film producers etc. are still recognising how wonderful these older actors and actresses are – and giving them leading roles.
