We have a winner in our book bag draw, and that is Martina, so the bag will be on its way to her in Australia soon, and meanwhile thanks again to everyone who entered and listed their travel reads.
What are you all reading just now?
I'm in the early pages of Jane Gardam's Crusoe's Daughter (our book group book for September) and it's off to a great start. I'm also dipping into a lovely collection of short essays, Simple Pleasures: Little Things That Make Life Worth Living, and reading my daily poem (today's was A Runnable Stag by John Davidson). And speaking of poetry, sad news this morning of the death of Seamus Heaney; I've posted his Blackberry picking here.
Back to the book group for a moment, and I have ideas for books for both October and November - I'm still swithering over one of them but hope to be able to post about them early next week so that we can all get ahead if we wish.
Finally, please come back later for 'book of the day'; I was going to include it here, but I think it deserves a post of its own ....
