StuckinaBook’s Weekend Miscellany

bookshopsI’m off to spend the weekend with Sherpa – ahem, with my family – and to recover from the excitement of Emmerdale’s death week. Seriously, I have struck up conversations with strangers about Emmerdale this week; it’s been amazing. If you watch it, please fill my heart with delight by letting me know and talking about HOW GOOD this week’s storytelling was.

But let’s get back to books for the usual (is it still ‘usual’ when I forget to do it so often?) book, blog post, and link…

1.) The book – Susan’s review of Bookshops by Jorge Carrion, which Annabel pointed out to me in the comments to my previous post, has made me very much want to get hold of it. And I suspect you will feel the same.

2.) The link – an exhibition of Tove Jansson’s paintings is coming to Dulwich (yay!) next October (boo!). Read more about it here.

3.) The blog post – it’s all about writing the introductions to Furrowed Middlebrow books, courtesy of Woman and Her Sphere.

    I’m already excited about the Jansson exhibition :-) The gallery is my local one – will it be excessive to go every day?

    Books about reading. May I recommend The Complete Polysyllabic Spree by Nick Hornby? Very amusing. The link is to my ancient review.

    I’m so glad you campaigned against the nasty troll, BTW. I immediately put part of one of my FM reviews on Amazon and gave it five stars.

    How have I not found your blog before?
    I didn’t know about the troll and Scott’s books at Dean Street. They sent me Bewildering Cares so I shall go on Amazon and review straightaway.
    So many books being reprinted from the past – a really good time to be a reader – loving all the British Library Crime Classics, Grey Ladies books and Persephone of course.
