Hello a very quick post from me, after putting one up so late yesterday you are now going to get a couple today you lucky things. Speaking of yesterday if you read my blog which included me visiting Wilkie Collins final resting place (and if you didnt go there now it was quite emotional in an odd way) and you want to learn more about the wonderful Kensal Green Cemetery, and it being sensation season, a bit more about The Victorian Way of Death…
Then do click on this link as you can watch a very, very interesting repeat of BBC’s Timewatch which focuses on just that. You only have until last thing Wednesday though so do hurry an watch it, utterly fascinating.
Back in the modern world this week will continue seeing me visiting Wimbledon Bookfest towards the end of the week. Now if like me you love, love, loved ‘Burnt Shadows’ by Kamila Shamsie then you might like to pop back later (after 2pm GMT) as there is what I think is quite an exciting little Kamila competition coming up and if you were as in love with the book (have you gathered I loved that book yet) as I was then you won’t want to miss out. In fact this week is going to be a bit of a competition week as I have another one for you all later in the week involving Louis de Bernieres and another Vintage one next week… blimey!
Hope you all had lovely weekends? Did anyone see Emma last night? I quite liked it, your thoughts?
