Weekend Wonderings

I don’t visit many blogs regularly (which makes me sad) because, you know, Emmi.  I also don’t read books as much as I’d like to, because you know, Emmi. But this one I manage to find time for, because it does exactly what it says on the tin: www.fuckyeahliteraryquotes.tumblr.com Yes. Here are some of my [...]

Saving Our Bookshops

I recently met Katielase in the British Library gift shop.  In one hour, we exchanged perhaps eight words with each other.  Occassionally we would catch sight of each other and wave the nearest book above our heads, in hysterical excitement.  We lost each other a few times. Many of us harbour a deep-set love of bookshops and libraries.  [...]
