Some None Bookish News… 

Now we have told everyone who we wanted to that might be furious/sad if they saw it on the internet first, I can share something rather exciting with all of you. Whilst we were out in Cyprus the week before last it seems the spirit of Aphrodite took us over completely…

Yes, The Beard and I got engaged. Who saw that coming? Certainly not me. I am thrilled and very excited though. There will be bookish bells (in a very bookish venue if I have my way) late summer 2017 all going well. Thought I’d share it with you all, even if it’s not really that booky at all! Books will be back tomorrow.

    I usually read your blog silently & go on my way, but this seems the perfect occasion to beak the habit (we do interact a bit on Twitter, though). Many congratulations to u 2 ! It seems your engagement with the Classical Goddess’ continues — Antigone, Aphrodite 🙂
