50 Shades of Posh Porn…

I am still in the midst of sorting out my new lovely laptop and transferring everything from hard discs or my old laptop if it can stay on for two seconds. However today I have been out and about to cheer me up (I didn’t get the job I went for because they didn’t feel I read enough ‘literature’, more on that in a day or two) and went for a trip around Formby. It has two book shops and loads and loads of charity shops, so I was in heaven. I did laugh though as why it is when you have a specific book in mind on a charity shop trawl it is fated to be the only one that none of the ten, yes ten, you go in have. Nor did the two new bookshops, drats. Anyway, having a pub lunch I saw this in the paper and had to share it all with you…

I loved this article for several reasons. One is the fact that I think Victoria Beckham is a bit brilliant and have for years, there’s a wryness to her that I really like. Two, I never thought that I would hear her talk about books. Three, she bought one for her mum, and I bought it for my possible future mother in law, so that makes us peas in a pod doesn’t it? Four, that this book has really had everyone talking about it! Will Kate, Camilla or Queen Liz be seen with a copy peeking out of their purse at some point, maybe the Olympics closing ceremony?

Anyway it entertained me and was bookish so I thought I would share it with you all.

  1. YOU don’t read enough literature? Seriously? I can’t wait for the post explaining this…

  2. What is the one specific book you were after? Bad luck about the job – what more could they want?!

  3. I’m so sorry you didn’t get the job, but that makes me think that your actual dream job is just around the corner!
    And I’m also envious that you have 10 charity shops to go searching for used books~~lucky you!

    We have 7 charity shops in the local high street, they are rather crap…I don’t bother with them anymore, plus I’m just a tad ocd about books, I mean… people sneeze in books and don’t get me started on hands! Our Waterstones closed at the weekend, so now we don’t have a bookstore at all, just banks, pubs and Argos…did you know they’re selling books now?!

    I think it’s quite funny how people are getting horny because of 50 shades… I’ve read them and they’re not a patch on the things I’ve read, I did read Anne Rice’s Sleeping Beauty series is being released, due to the hype of 50 shades.

    I read your latest tweets, and cats don’t sleep at night, it’s at night they’re awake the most, it’s their nature, so you may want to stock up on pro plus now ha!

      Ooh don’t you think there’s ‘levels’ of literature? To some extent I do feel there is… thinking about the type of books you read, say what you’ve read in the last 6-8 months, they’ve not been that ‘literary’?
