StuckinaBook’s Weekend Miscellany

I hope you’re having a good weekend. I’ll mostly be reading The Magnificent Spinster by May Sarton, trying to prepare for recording the next episode of ‘Tea or Books?’ tomorrow – there are definitely worse ways to spend a weekend. Before I get further into that – here’s a book, a blog post, and a link…

Jacob's Room Has Too Many Books1.) The book – is one I’ve waited for for ages. And I’ll have to wait a bit longer: Jacob’s Room Has Too Many Books by Susan Hill – a sort-of sequel to Howards End is on the Landing. I read about it over at Cornflower Books – but, sadly, we’ll have to wait until October.

2.) The blog post – now that The Lark is back in print (or shortly back in print?) from Dean Street Press – the best book news of the year, without doubt! – it’s fun to see the reviews starting to come in. Here’s one from Liz.

3.) The link – I’m going to assume that everybody knows about Humans of New York by now… but, just in case… (Btw, at the risk of sounding like a hipster, I have two of his prints from the early days when he was sending them out for not very much. Sadly not signing them, though…)

    I am SO ready for Jacob’s Room Has Too Many Books! Seven months seems a ridiculously long time away but at least we have a timeline (though I notice it’s not yet showing up on Amazon or the like, even for pre-order).

    On a different note thank you for the update of the Humans of New York page. Loved it.

    Great news, I didn’t realise that Hill was writing a follow on book to Howards End is on the Landing. Ilove that book and have reread it several times. October feels a long way off at the moment but it is something to look forward to. Maybe I will have to reread Howards End …….again in preparation.

    Simon you truly ARE an honorary NY Hipster. Sort of. More or less. Just right.
