It’s coffee time – go make yourself one of these and then read my weekly collection of things I’ve been into.
I’m off to London next week for a meeting and have a little time to kill (thank you awkward train times) so I’m going to fit in some serious sightseeing; first stop the British Museum – I’ve never visited before which makes me feel very guilty and uncultured.
I must see the Rosetta Stone, that much I know already – I have A History of the World in 100 objects; which is a book based on the most important objects in the Museum which I’ll be feverishly reading over the weekend.
I included this photograph because, well, it’s Banksy and London. That’s it.
The Women’s prize for fiction, previously the Orange Prize, longlist was announced yesterday, of course, Hilary Mantel is nominated – she’s pretty much won every award in the
country universe recently. The longlist has given me a lot of inspiration for my TB (to buy list) especially Zadie Smith’s NW and Kate Atkinson’s Life After Life.
I joined Tumblr a few weeks ago – I swore that I would not let it drag me into vicious internet circles of looking at Harry Potter memes and Gilmore Girl GIFs and I can honestly say that I’ve broken that promise. A lot.
I’ll leave you with this…
