AKA Showcase Sunday

I’m trying not to buy books at the moment until I’ve read some of the ones I’ve bought recently. I kept walking past the Buried Giant display in Waterstones’ window thinking I really must read the last special edition I bought from there first. Then I was feeling a bit down one day and I came out of work to find my boyfriend clutching a copy for me. He’s the best!

I also got a box from My Geek Box this month but it was a bit disappointing. We might try one from somewhere else next month but I do fear that if you’re not into Marvel you’re screwed. Josh did get a Ghostbusters t-shirt out of it, so it wasn’t a complete loss. We made our DIY Wolverine Munny completely wonky too, so he has a bit of charm.

I’m raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society. Please give a few pounds if you can. Thank you!
