Books In, Bookshop Crawl

A Grand (Bookish) Day Out

Yesterday was the wonderful London Bookshop Crawl, organised by the fantastic (if hopeless navigator) Bex (who also organises the Ninja Book Swap). It was so good to meet Bex, Laura, Ellie and Katie whose blogs I have followed for years, but also everyone else was…

September has seen the start of 2016 releases trickling in. I guess for a lot of publishers the pre-Christmas period is all biographies and cookbooks, so the next batch of fiction will be the new year. Gives us time to take a breather at least!…
